Women's Six nations on TV... latest news so far (UPDATE)

Unfortunately there seems likely to be little improvement on TV coverage of the Six Nations this year. From what has been announced so far (plus educated guesses)...

Both of England's games will be available to watch live:
v Wales (25th February) will be shown on the BBC. Which BBC channel (or whether just on the Red Button) yet to be confirmed.
v Ireland (17th March) will be shown on - the same system used for the New Zealand tests. See ScrumQueens for more details.

Other than the above, unknown although BBC Wales' Scrum V has shown some highlights in the past.

Bad news is that Scottish Rugby TV - which has shown highlights of some women's internationals in the past - has now closed down. Its pretty unlikely therefore that any home Scotland games will be covered by anyone.

Highlights of home games will be shown, probably on RTE's rugby programme "Against the Head" (not easily available in the UK without clever - and frankly illegal - fiddling with Sky boxes).

France v England will be shown live in France on France4 - a major advance as this will be the first time any women's international will have been shown live on a national French channel. The downside is that this means it will probably not be available in the UK. Highlights from the other French games may appear on, and it is possible that regional TV stations may also offer some coverage which may be available on the web. Bit of a lottery though.

In all probability nothing will be available from any Italian home games.
