RugbyPass Alternatives (6N and Pro14 Gone)

So it turns out that RugbyPass have, completely unannounced, lost the rights to both the Pro14 and the 6N in the last couple of weeks (and it looks like they've lost all European rights - HEC too - tbc). Their customer service is next to useless, with no information on why and when customers will be...
