Here are all the television and streaming details for this Guinness Pro14 rugby match.
Ulster v Benetton live stream: How to watch from anywhere
Last season’s Guinness Pro14 may not have ended how Ulster and Dan McFarland would have wanted after tasting defeat against Leinster in the Final, but they quickly get to turn their attention to next season with it starting almost immediately after that result.
Their opening opponents are Benetton, who will feel confident they can upset the hosts after winning their last two Guinness Pro14 away games.
New season, new possibilities, new hope – all of these things could mean we get an exciting affair on Friday night.
