All championship matches will be available to watch live on the BBC in the UK
Women’s Six Nations TV coverage will see matches available to watch via terrestrial TV in the UK.
England head into the tournament as defending champions. They will be gunning to keep their trophy, especially as it will be their last with head coach Simon Middleton as the boss is stepping down.
The Red Roses will have stiff competition, particularly from France.
In the UK, the BBC has secured the broadcast rights. All matches will be shown live. There will be one match per round on BBC Two with other games on BBC iPlayer, BBC Scotland, BBC Two Wales and BBC Two Northern Ireland – see below for a breakdown of what channel each match will be shown on.
If you’re outside of the UK, but want your usual coverage, it’s best to check out the free 30-day ExpressVPN trial and follow the instructions at the bottom of this post.
In Ireland, all of the games will be broadcast across RTÉ and Virgin Media. France TV and Sky Italia will show the matches in France and Italy respectively.
