England vs Italy Live Stream: Watch this weekend’s Six Nations rugby online for free

England vs Italy Live Stream: How to watch England vs Italy in the Six Nations 2018. Get your weekend sorted with these free streams of the 2018 Six Nations opening games.

The Six Nations is back with a bang this February and live streaming means it couldn’t be easier to catch every match, wherever you are. Here’s all the information you’ll need to stream the glorious action, beginning with England vs Italy – plus crucial details like what channel you can catch it on, the date and kickoff time.

England, holders of the 2017 title, faces what appears to be a kind opening fixture this Sunday, against perennial underdogs Italy in Rome. Eddie Jone’s men have been impressive in the run-up to the tournament, thrashing Argentina and Samoa in November last year, and are sure to be full of confidence at the Stadio Olimpico. It will be a tough match for the Italians, who come off the back of recent losses to Argentina and South Africa at home.

However, Italy captain Sergio Parisse says they will ‘fight in every single match’ and are building to ‘something special’ – and it will certainly take something special to beat England, with some bookies giving the home side lowly 12/1 odds.

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT on Sunday February 4, and the match will be broadcast live on ITV, as the BBC and ITV share the rights to all Six Nations matches this year. If you find yourself without access to a TV or a patriotic local pub, then don’t sweat it – live streaming England vs Italy will be a breeze. You can find a live stream on ITV Live online or on ITV Hub, a popular app for Android and iOS.
