Ulster rugby games 'to move from BBC to pay channel'

Ulster fans could be paying to watch their team on television from next year 

Ulster rugby fans will have to pay to watch the team's games on television after the BBC were outbid on Guinness PRO14 broadcast rights.

The Belfast Telegraph has reported that from next year, Ulster's games in the league will be shown by Premier Sports, owned by Luxembourg company Premier Media.

The move means fans would have to pay £9.99 a month to access the matches.

Currently, every Ulster game is aired free on BBC, even when shown on Sky Sports.
