The BBC has announced plans to air the Autumn International fixtures featuring Ireland, Scotland and Wales after agreeing a series of new rugby union deals.
BBC Sport has secured broadcast rights to all Ireland and Wales international matches in 2010, 2012 and 2013, along with Scotland's remaining games this year.
The agreements include TV and radio coverage, as well as online, Red Button, iPlayer and high definition on either BBC HD or the new BBC One HD channel.
The BBC also recently signed a deal with rugby union governing body the RFU to provide highlights coverage of all England international fixtures up to 2013 inclusive.
"We're delighted to have renewed our partnership with the WRU, IRFU and SRU to cover their annual Autumn International fixtures live and with the RFU to show highlights of their matches," said Philip Bernie, the BBC's head of TV sport.
"The Autumn Internationals continue to grow in intensity and importance as the Home Nations test themselves against the best of the Southern Hemisphere and take stock ahead of the forthcoming Six Nations Championship.
"We value the ongoing relationships we have with the Home Unions and look forward to continuing to bring top-class rugby to our audiences."
In July, ITV retained broadcast rights to the Rugby World Cup after securing coverage of the tournament next year in New Zealand and the lucrative 2015 event in England.
