Every Wallabies Spring Tour match will be shown live on beIn Sports on Foxtel, with an agreement for the France and England Tests confirmed by the international broadcaster on Saturday.

The announcement means that every match of the Wallabies five-week Spring Tour will be available for Foxtel subscribers at no extra cost, on channels 513, 514 or 515, starting with Sunday morning's Wales clash.

Up until Saturday, agreements had been reached for the Scotland, Ireland and Wales Tests but negotiations with the home unions, who own the rights for the end of year clashes had been ongoing for the remaining two Tests, including a potential blockbuster against England on December 3.

Developments have been made for All Blacks fans keen to watch New Zealand's match against Ireland this weekend as well, with New Zealand, who own the rights, streaming the match here.

beIn Sports has also offered a free two-week trial pass for this weekend’s and the Wallabies Test match against Ireland through beIn Sports Connect.

The Test between the Wallabies and Wales will be televised on beIN Sports 3 (Foxtel channel 515) from 1.00am AEDT on Sunday 6 November and live streamed on Foxtel GO for Foxtel subscribers.

An ARU Spokesperson said confirmation of coverage of all five Wallabies Tests would be welcome news for fans.

"Today we have received some great news for fans with confirmation all five Wallabies Spring Tour Tests will be shown live on beIN Sports, starting early tomorrow morning with the opening Test of the tour against Wales," he said.

"Sometimes these negotiations between broadcasters and the host union of the Test matches can take some time, but we are delighted with today's news out of beIN Sports."
