Having taken the pressure off under-fire head coach Ian Foster with their rousing win last time out, New Zealand will be hoping for another victory in the 2022 Rugby Championship as they face an in-form Argentina on today. Read on as our guide explains how to watch a New Zealand vs Argentina live stream from anywhere in the world and what TV channels and services to use.

New Zealand vs Argentina live stream

Date: Saturday, August 27

Kick-off time: 7.45pm NZST / 5.45pm AEST / 9.45am SAST /  8.45am BST / 3.45am ET

Venue: Orangetheory Stadium, Christchurch, New Zealand 

Global live streams: Stan Sport (Aus) | SuperSport (SA) | Sky Sport (NZ) | Sky Sports (UK) | FloRugby (US)

Foster looked in line for the sack after a poor run of three straight defeats, but the impressive 35-23 victory in Johannesburg a fortnight ago looks to have earned him a reprieve. The All Blacks now face another stern test as they go up against an Argentina side that leads the 2022 Rugby Championship standings after two rounds following their 48-17 demolition of Australia in San Juan.

Pumas chief Michael Cheika made three starting changes to add some heft to his backs, with Matias Moroni and Lucio Cinti starting in place of the experienced centre Jeronimo de la Fuente and wing Juan Imhoff. Foster has meanwhile stuck with pretty much the same side that beat South Africa at Ellis Park for this clash at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch, with Beauden Barrett made unavailable due to a neck injury picked up in training.

Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a New Zealand vs Argentina live stream of the Rugby Championship game wherever you are right now.

How to watch New Zealand vs Argentina in Australia


Rugger fans can watch New Zealand vs Argentina on Stan Sport in Australia, with a subscription costing $10 per month (on top of a $10 Stan sub).

How to live stream New Zealand vs Argentina from outside your country

If you're outside your country of residence - whether that be the UK or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.
