New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) and Sky TV have joined forces to bring more of the country's best sporting content to even more Kiwis.

Sky Sport's hugely popular weekly rugby magazine show The Breakdown will be livestreamed tonight from 8.30pm on nzherald.co.nz.

This week on The Breakdown, Jordie Barrett talks about his training secrets ahead of the opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa, Dr Ben O'Keeffe shares his COVID19 hospital experience and analyses proposed law changes and Nehe Milner-Skudder reports in from the Deep South.

NZME managing editor Shayne Currie said he was delighted to be teaming up with Sky, to help grow audiences for both businesses - and increase interest in myriad sporting codes.
