SPARK SPORT AND SKY ANNOUNCE THAT COMMERCIAL PREMISES THAT WANT TO SHOW RUGBY WORLD CUP 2019™ WILL BE ABLE TO BUY ACCESS TO A SPARK SPORT POP-UP CHANNEL ON THEIR SKY DECODER.
This is in addition to Spark Sport’s existing offer to commercial customers to stream Rugby World Cup matches from the Spark Sport app over their broadband connection.
As announced in April, commercial customers can purchase a Spark Sport Rugby World Cup Tournament Pass at the consumer price through sparksport.co.nz/rwc2019. This option gives both consumer and commercial customers access to all 48 matches live and on demand, plus access to a range of highlights and archive matches.
Additionally, from today, SKY commercial customers can buy access to a Spark Sport RWC pop-up channel through SKY, which includes all 48 matches live. Commercial customers can access the pop-up channel for a one-off cost at commercial rates. Rates are confidential but reflect the quality and scale of the event.
Under the terms of the partnership, Spark will cover the costs of SKY establishing the pop-up channel and will receive all related revenue from SKY commercial customers.
David Chalmers, Executive Lead for Spark Sport, explains, “After testing in a wide range of commercial environments, we are confident in the Spark Sport streaming service that we are making available for commercial premises. But we also wanted to provide an alternative option for venues that would prefer to use their existing infrastructure, particularly for those locations without streaming-ready broadband connectivity.
“This partnership with SKY means that commercial businesses which already have SKY set up in their premises have options for how they screen the tournament, to ensure that as many commercial premises around New Zealand as possible can show the Rugby World Cup in its entirety.”
Sophie Moloney, SKY’s Strategic Partnerships lead, said that “Watching the Rugby World Cup is a special activity for many New Zealanders, and a big part of the sports calendar for pubs and clubs throughout the country. We are pleased to be able to work together with Spark to deliver this alternative access option for our commercial customers, including those in rural areas who don’t yet have access to fast enough broadband.”

A very happy customer installed his enclosure himself at home with awesome results
Chris from Auckland reviewed:
I found the Apollo outdoor TV enclosure system by web search, and it appeared to be just what I was after. I contacted Digi Screens and was impressed from the first moment. Rebecca was informed, helpful and very quickly identified the model choices that would be best suited to my requirements, and promptly sent me a pricing brochure. Follow up conversations with owners Leonie and her husband with technical help, as I needed an RF input TV, were followed up by them going out of their way by doing research on suitable TV’s. Far more than I expected. The result is simply brilliant, and installation was much less complicated than it looked. I have no hesitation in recommending the product or Digi Screens.
The installation of a 65″ screen on articulating wall mount at Great Kiwi Yarns on Queen Street in Auckland is a sleek and modern way to showcase our clients range of beautiful knitted garments, and for after hours the articulating mount allows the screen to be turned to face the foot traffic on the street.
There is no room for confusion now at the Pikes Point Transfer Station, the high bright LED sign above the tellers office has all the information.
Over Summer Peter from Electronic Interiors has installed these Apollo Enclosures for private home entertainment areas and don’t they look fantastic!
They worked a treat, so the team at Turoa Ski Fields Ohakune has just order a matching set!
Ruapehu Alpine Lifts Limited have purchased three 55″ Apollo outdoor enclosures with heater option (brrrr) and three 700 nit LG screens to go inside.
These are to display weather, news and safety messages for the skiers and snowboarders at Mt Ruapehu ski fields.
