Seven also hold the rights to pay-TV, live streaming and radio for this event and their plans for coverage of one of the biggest sporting events to hit Australia this decade have recently been announced.
In a similar fashion to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, they broadcasted content on all three of their channels – 7, 7TWO and 7Mate – on TV.
On top of that, you can download their 7CommGames app from both the Google Play and Apple store. There is also a website version of the application for desktop and laptop users which will provide exactly the same content.
The app and website are set to have all events on TV and every medal event available for free. This is a change from the Olympic Games when to gain access to anything other than the three channels, you needed to pay for the premium part of the application.
There is still a premium option on the Rugby 7s Commonwealth Games application, which would give you access to HD content, extra features and less advertisements, as well as the remaining events not covered for free throughout the broadcast Commonwealth Games 7s . This option will set you back $19.99.
