|Wayne||It might be a case of the rights being bought by someone else. bein sports has been getting aggressive recently in acquiring rugby rights, at least RU. It started last year with the Six Nations and this year they have the rights in Canada for English RU Premiership (aka Aviva Premiership) and the Celtic RU competition (Guiness Pro 12). So the only Northern Hemisphere rugby union left on Rogers/Setanta is European Championship, FKA Heineken Cup. I am not sure who has the Super Rugby rights in the Southern Hemisphere but we will see in 11 days when the Super 15 season starts.|

|longjohns_mcgee||Looks like hockey on Rogers has claimed another casualty from Sportsnet World. Super League Rugby starts this week and I noticed it is no longer listed on their site as one of their sports, and it is not in the schedule. BPL Classics takes priority I suppose. So glad I cancelled this worthless piece of crap channel.|

|ticky||I will still watch SN World for rugby league and rugby union games occasionally, but I've resorted to removing it from my package during the week and only adding it every second weekend or so then removing it again. No use paying for weekdays when they show zero live programming.|

As a rugby fan I agree that this is very disappointing. It looks like the English Premiership is now on beINSports - does anyone know how much it costs? beIN also started covering Six Nations last year. It looks like Rogers Sports now only have Heineken Cup in Europe and then pretty much all of the Southern Hemisphere rugby.
I didn't watch much of the Pro12 rugby but it would be nice to see Top 14, since they have signed so many top players, and the Aviva Prem.
Anyone have any ideas on where else to get these games? RTE has an online service that is viewable with Unblockus and they carry Irish international games but I am not sure about Pro 12. There are also the torrent sites but that is a legal grey area and is more work.
I really wonder how they can still charge $20 for this channel given the lack of content these days.

|longjohns_mcgee||If you click on the rugby link, you'll see that they have removed the three European leagues now. This was a good part of their fall rugby schedule. I'm not really a soccer fan but unless they have some sort of backup plan, friendlies, "classic" reruns and incessant magazine shows aren't worth $20+ a month to keep.|

No European Rugby
Looks like Sportsnet World won't be airing the Premier League, Pro12 or Top 14 Rugby leagues anymore. Info has been removed from their website. The downhill roller coaster keeps on going and going for this pathetic excuse of a premium channel!

|PFD||Sportsnet World has definately gone down hill. I may switch to BeIn.|

I signed up today to watch the Barca and Madrid CL games this round.
Also figured some interesting PL games will be on before the season ends.
But will quickly cancel then too.
Rising prices will never end ...

So Sportsnet World has rewarded my loyalty to sticking with them despite the significant reduction in programming by asking me to pay another $1 a month starting next month.
I've cancelled ...
