But also consider what format you want to watch the game on. And there will be plenty of options for the picking:
Smart TV Built-in Casting
Laptop or Desktop
And many more!
So let us go through each of these options here, and how one can set up the ultimate Ruby viewing station.
Smartphone and Tablet Users
Smartphone and Tablet might be the most speedy and convenient option out of all, but of course visual and sound quality will suffer. All that is required is the Spark Sports App.
Viewers can catch the live action of Rugby World Cup on Mobiles through different apps available.
Web Browser, and Laptop/Desktop Users
If more of a party set-up is desired with a TV in the equation, then a simple option would be to run off of a Web Browser, but only if the laptop or computer has an HDMI port since a cable will have to be connected from the TV to the device.
With Google Chromecast, all that is required is to plug the device into the HDMI ports on the TV. The games can then be cast using the Spark Sport mobile app or from the browser screen, just make sure that both the browser — or smartphone — is located on the same wireless network as your Chromecast device.
Smart TV Casting
If all of these network connections and pairing seems like a hassle, then those that have casting built into their Smart TVs will have a smoother viewing option. All that needs to be done is connect the TV to the same wireless network as your phone or laptop, download the app, and voila — the matches will be cast to the TV!
Make sure that whatever viewing option is chosen is suitable for the number of people that are being invited over! Having ten raucous friends spilling cheese dip a phone is not the ideal scenario. Plan for the party, do not have the party plan for the viewing.
If there have been shortages then look into changing for a more reputable provider, as streaming is not as stable as a direct live broadcast to a TV.
With the Spark Sport Pass enabled, the watching station all set up with a rock solid connection, and the party invitations set, then one would be ensured dynamic Rugby World Cup 2019 Viewing parties!
