State of origin returns in 2022 and if you want to watch the opener live, there are only a handful of options with the match being broadcast exclusively by Nine Network.

This year’s coverage will look a little different with Ray Warren – the voice of rugby league – announcing his retirement from calling rugby league.

Kick-off between the NSW Blues and Queensland Maroons is scheduled for 8.10pm AEST on Wednesday June 8.

Want to watch the game live or on traditional TV broadcast?

This is the roarThe ultimate guide to following Origin 2 online, on TV and on the radio.

How to stream Origin 1 online

As mentioned above, the only way to watch State of Origin in Australia live is through the Nine Network.

You won’t be able to stream the match live on Fox League or Kayo as you can for other NRL matches.

Instead, the only way to stream the match online is through 9Now. This is a free service but you will need to create an account if you don’t have one.

9Now can be accessed on a mobile app through Apple Store and Google Play or you can also access it on most smart TVs and a standard web browser if you want to stream on a laptop or desktop.

9Now will also have the replay and highlights after the game. Fox League and Kayo will also be airing a replay, but we must stress once again that they will have NO live coverage other than the pre-game build-up.

How to watch Origin 1 on TV

There’s only one way to watch the 2022 State of Origin series on TV, and that’s through the Nine Network. While Fox Sports aired the entire NRL regular season, Nine has exclusive rights to Origin and the NRL Grand Final.

To access the Nine broadcast in metropolitan areas, you’ll need to head to channel number 9 or 91 on your TV for standard definition, or channel 90 to watch the game in high definition. For Foxtel customers you will need to select channel 209 and if you are in regional Australia you will need to search for your TV guide, but it will likely be on channel 8 for most parts of NSW and Queensland.

Their broadcast will begin at 7:30 p.m. (AEST), approximately 45 minutes before the scheduled kickoff. Their broadcast will then lead into the match with pre-match analysis and interviews, as well as entertainment and the national anthem ceremony.

Nine is scheduled to remain on the air until around 10:30 p.m. (AEST), allowing for a half-hour post-match show, which will include the announcement of the man of the match.

How to Listen to Origin 1 on the Radio

If you can’t get near a TV or want to listen to the game, there are three options for receiving a radio call from the game.

You can listen via ABC Grandstand, Triple M or 2GB. You can find local frequencies on each station’s website.

If all of the above options fail for you, or you just want to engage in healthy discussion and banter throughout the game, the roar will provide a live blog, highlights and extensive analysis throughout the game.
