Interestingly, my V6 boxes show Nations Cup games from Monday 7th onwards but not those for Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th inclusive.

Very strange!

Perhaps reboot your box and see if that sorts it out.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Rebooting the box does NOT sort it out. Forcing a Network Connection is the only way to ensure you V6 box has the latest guide data.

The current data is not yet showing the games for 3rd-6th Sept - and these were only updated by Sky this morning.

The 360 box (Horizon) does have the games updated for those days.

Actually - the England game is still missing on VM.

I see that Amazon is interested in competing against Sky for the Eight Nations rugby season. The bidding should be interesting.

Amazon is reportedly interested in making a bid for the rights to the upcoming Eight Nations rugby tournament.

The new competition will feature the traditional Six Nations teams - England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France and Italy - as well as Fiji and one other nation, most likely South Africa.

Sky Sports had been tipped to be a shoo-in for the rights to the Eight Nations, which will take place in November, but according to the Daily Mail, Amazon has expressed interest in a deal.

Rights owner speculates on Amazon bid to extract greater revenue from Sky. Straight from the Scudamore playbook.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

New options for BT Sport. Won't change anything for VM subscribers though.

"Now more ways to watch BT Sport than ever before!

- Fire TV
- Android TV
- Roku streaming players and Roku TV models

We've added three new places where you can access the award-winning BT Sport App!

And all in time for the new Premier League season"

Another nail in linear TV coffin - Prime has indeed been awarded the broadcasting rights for an estimated £15m as a one-off deal for this season only.

Ireland games including the England game at Twickenham will also be on CH4.

Rugby trying to get interest from other PPV sources before taking the 6 nations tournament off free to air TV when current contract comes to an end after 2021 tournament?

Surprised Sky or BT didn't bid more than that but it sits quite neatly with Amazon picking up rights for peanuts.
