It will be shown on ITV in the UK at 9pm tonight – with the channel joining a long list of networks around the world that paid huge figures to secure the viewing.
According to The Australian, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex told four broadcasters they must obey four non-negotiable strict rules.
Firstly, they were reportedly told to run the interview in full and not to “edit” the chat in any way.
The second demand told channels they can’t edit a series of ads which have been sent to broadcasters.
Thirdly, every channel airing the interview can’t edit the synopsis which is being provided.
The fourth rule states that broadcasters must only use approved still images supplied to promote the chat.
During the interview, the pair accused an unnamed royal of racism and suggested the family were jealous of Meghan.
Appearing vulnerable at times, Meghan revealed that she contemplated taking her own life while pregnant.
She also claimed her son Archie wasn't made a prince after "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" his skin would be when he was born.

Meghan also revealed that she and Harry and expecting a baby girl – with Harry adding: “To have a boy and then a girl, you know, what more can you ask for?”
The Duchess also went on to deny making Kate Middleton cry.
She claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge was in fact the one who brought her to tears over the bridesmaid dresses in the lead up to her wedding.
Some of their claims left talk-show host Oprah Winfrey visibly stunned and she was heard gasping throughout the interview.
In the most eye-opening claim, Meghan said there had been conversations with Prince Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be – and "what that would mean or look like".
But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.
Prince Harry said he would "never share" the full details of the discussion but that he was asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan, how dark the skin of their children might be.
Speaking to Oprah, Meghan said the concerns had been raised at the same time that the future parents were told Archie would not receive security as he was not a prince.
She said: "All the grandeur around this stuff is not really important to me.
"But in those months when I was pregnant, all around same time: we have in tandem he won’t be given security, a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born."
Oprah was left stunned and replied: "What? There is a conversation…hold on. Hold up. Hold up. Stop right now. About how dark your baby is going to be?"
Meghan replied: "Potentially, and what that would mean or look like."
Oprah then gasped: "Whoa."
Asked whether there were concerns that her child would be “too brown” and that would be a problem, Meghan said: “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one.”
