The 2023 NRL grand final will see the season's top two teams clash for the right to be crowned champions as the Penrith Panthers tackle the Brisbane Broncos.

This is Zero Tackle's full guide to the game including how to watch it on TV or live stream it online.

Kick-off in the grand final is set for 7:30pm (AEDT) on Sunday, October 1. Keep in mind that Sunday is the first day of daylight savings for New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory as well as South Australia.

The road to the grand final

The Panthers won the minor premiership at the end of the regular season, while the Broncos finished in second spot on the table.

Both teams have recorded heavy wins during their two finals games to date in progressing to the decider. Penrith hammered the New Zealand Warriors and the Melbourne Storm after a week off, while the Broncos did the same to the Storm in the first week of the finals before beating the Warriors heavily in the preliminary final.

How to watch the 2023 NRL grand final on TV

The NRL grand final will be broadcast exclusively on Channel 9. While all other games during the season were available on Fox Sports, they do not have the right to show the grand final.

Channel 9s coverage of the grand final will commence after 9News at 6:30pm (AEST). The news is only being broadcast in a break from the day's coverage, with the earlier State Championship and NRLW grand finals to also be shown on Nine (although those two games are both broadcast on Fox Sports in a simulcast agreement).
