BT Sport is making it bumper weekend of live Aviva Premiership rugby union available free-to-air.

UK viewers will be able to watch four games - including the eagerly-anticipated all-London clash between Saracens and Harlequins, at Wembley Stadium - regardless of whether they have a BT Sport subscription or not.

The action gets underway on Friday March 21st when Worcester Warriors host London Wasps at Sixways, before Saturday's double-header - which also includes London Irish v Bath Rugby at the Madejski Stadium.

Then on Sunday March 23rd, viewers can tune in to see the current champions Leicester Tigers take on Exeter Chiefs at Welford Road.

BT TV customers can watch the action on channels 507/510/58, Sky viewers can see the games on 413 or 426 and Virgin Media TV subscribers can tune in on 547 or 549.

Households with a BT broadband connection can, as usual, watch BT Sport for free online if they do not have a YouView set-top box.

They simply need to register to use the BT Sport app and online player, which allows them to stream live BT Sport content over the internet.

Sky subscribers have free access to BT Sport this weekend via a Sky+HD set-top box, while Virgin Media viewers can watch through their TiVo boxes.

Going forward, if non-BT broadband customers want access to BT Sport they will be able to do so via a YouView set-top box, through Sky's digital satellite platform, or by signing up for a premium Virgin Media broadband bundle.

It costs £12 per month for access to BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN in standard definition, or £15 per month for those who want to watch in HD.
