The NRL grand final will see the Penrith Panthers looking to make it two premierships on the bounce as they take on the Parramatta Eels, looking to snap the NRL's longest premiership drought. This is how to watch the match on TV, or live stream the NRL's 2022 decider online.

The match, set to be played on Sunday, October 2, will kick-off at 7:30pm (AEDT), and is to be played at Homebush's Accor Stadium in Sydney.

The Panthers have qualified for the grand final after dominating the Eels in a qualifying final during Week 1, before blasting past the South Sydney Rabbitohs in last weekend's preliminary final.

The Eels, on the other hand, have recovered strongly from their qualifying final nightmare to beat the Raiders in a blowout and Cowboys in a thriller last week to make the decider.

Unlike the remainder of the NRL season, there will only be one way to watch the decider, with Channel 9 holding the exclusive rights to the premiership decider.

Their coverage will commence earlier in the day ahead of the State Challenge clash, with a break for the news at 6pm (AEST) before returning to Homebush at 6:30pm (AEST).

The coverage is scheduled to run until 10:30pm (AEST) - approximately an hour after fulltime and is available on Channel 90 in high definition, 91 in standard definition or 100 if watching through a Foxtel service.
