Italy were no pushovers in their opener, so read on as our guide explains how to watch an Italy vs England live stream for the 2022 Six Nations from anywhere in the world and what TV channel – including free-to-air coverage in the UK.
The Azzurri charged out of the blocks against France last weekend and actually led the contest for much of the fist half. Could they do the unthinkable and leave England with bloodied noses?

It’s been a long week for Luke Cowan-Dickie, whose late error proved costly in England’s 20-17 defeat to Scotland, and the hooker will be desperate to get out onto the pitch again and move on.
Jones has borne the brunt of most fans’ ire, however, because of his decision to replace fly-half Smith with George Ford late on, when England were in the lead. But he’s sticking by his decision, and will be going all-out to prove that last weekend’s result was simply a blip, rather than a symptom of decline.
Italy have never beaten England, but they may sense an opportunity to do some damage here. Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get an Italy vs England live stream wherever you are right now – starting with how to watch the Six Nations for FREE in the UK and Ireland.
