England men's Quilter International with Ireland will also be broadcast on free-to-air Channel 4. 

The Autumn Nations Cup will be the first competitive Autumn international tournament and the first full tournament after a six month break for international rugby.

England's games against Georgia, Ireland, Wales and our final fixture yet to be determined will all be broadcast on Amazon Prime Video. 

Prime Video will also co-broadcast the England v Ireland fixture, played at Twickenham alongside Channel 4.  

The games will run from Friday 13 November until Sunday 6 December and be fronted by Gabby Logan, Bryan Habana and other top class rugby names who will deliver the on screen action to fans. 

The tournament starts as a round-robin format featuring two groups, each containing three of the Six Nations teams and one guest team, concluding with a knock-out finals weekend.

Prime Video’s exclusive fixtures will include seismic clashes including Wales v England and England v Ireland as well as all Finals featuring the top performing teams from both groups.

“We are excited and privileged to work with Six Nations Rugby and the eight participating unions in to bring this new tournament to viewers across the UK on Prime Video,” said Alex Green, MD Prime Video Sport Europe. 

“It is a unique event bringing a new level of competitiveness to Autumn international rugby and will offer something back to all the fans who have missed top-level rugby.  We will be offering mouth-watering clashes featuring the top international teams in the Northern Hemisphere exclusively to UK Prime members at no additional charge to their membership.”

Ben Morel, CEO Six Nations Rugby commented: "We are delighted to welcome Amazon Prime Video on board as a broadcast partner for the Autumn Nations Cup, and to have such a major global player demonstrate their commitment to rugby is a tremendous endorsement for our game. 

"Amazon Prime Video has already established a reputation for delivering high level production in live sport which we have seen through their coverage of the Premier League, ATP and WTA Tennis, and NFL. We are hugely excited by their initial plans for the Autumn Nations Cup and are confident rugby lovers will thoroughly enjoy the coverage."
