I get it through my phone plan. All I had to do was log into their website and create an account. You can also hook up ya computer or laptop to the tv and watch it that way

Yeah I signed up. Just wait til June 1st as you get charged calendar month I think. Just download the optus sport app and follow the bouncing ball pretty simple. That will get it to work on your phone or tablet.

I recently moved house and I've always gone with Telstra. But looking at jumping over to Optus for the EPL and World Cup etc. not going to go on a plan though just case they are useless.

Think it’s pretty good tbh.
The only thing that affects me personally, is that I wish there was a ps4 app so I could watch it through the tv.
They continuously tell me that it’s coming.
Anyway, I could just get a cable or chromecast. So not the end of the world. It’s warmer in bed with a laptop at 3am anyway.

Already have my phone with Optus so happy days there, splashed $50 on a chromecast so I can stream it through the TV. Super easy to set up.

Also with Fulham back in the EPL I'll need this set up to watch them next season, so I'm ready for that now as well :cool:

BTW - simple tip for those that want Optus just for the WC, just hit up a mate who has got it for his login.

You can have three devices or a Fetch plus one device running at the same time.

Just up to old mate to change his password at the end of the WC.

i use ExpressVPN and it worked for Foxtel go all overseas and let me watch NZ Bein sports EPL coverage during the last season.

Although to be fair those Bein sports chaps sure made an effort to keep blocking it, but there was generally a workaround.

yes of course the only way to save the $5m p/y that Abbott cut (approx 2% of their budget) was to dump probably the highest rated programming they own.
of course you give away your best content instead of searching across the 5 channels you operate.
of course there would be absolutely no way to save money or run things more efficiently.

especially when you, yanno, didnt actually 'save' any money by on selling the World Cup rights.

see, if you needed to 'save' the money you wouldnt swap that highly coveted content that you paid $20m cash in exchange for $8m cash and $10m worth of alternative content.

any CEO in the commercial world that did that would be out on their ass. but its easy when you play with someone elses money and have a band of suckers out there that believe every sob story you peddle.

yeah i didnt 'need' one, as my streaming (apart from 10mins of one game being slow) has been perfect. We have NBN here at Plague Manor, so maybe that helps.

Apparently we will get our hard earned back :redcard:


All World Cup 2018 matches for the remainder of the group stages will be broadcast on SBS as well as streaming service Optus, with the latter service also made free to all Australians until August 31.

Customers who have signed up to Optus and paid $15 for the service will also be refunded after technical issues plagued the telco's coverage of the world's largest sporting event in its opening week.

"We as Optus have tried hard to deliver an exceptional viewing experience and deeply regret this has not been the case for all Australians," Optus chief executive Allen Lew said.

"Since Monday we have continued to improve our product and Optus have delivered the last six matches of the world Cup without issue. This has provided us with the confidence that out efforts have worked.

I suspect this is the case as well.

Any improvement in the service could easily be down to reduced demand due to people flooding back to SBS, and anyone who has issues with the coverage who still wanted to use it will just flick over to SBS instead of persisting with Optus and complaining.

The quality of video is much better on SBS for me (but that's cause I have third world internet - where the NBN at Tony?). But I've still been watching the mini-matches on Optus, I think they're great. 2 and 3 minute highlight vids just do nothing for me. If I had the time I would still try to watch full matches - but these are a good compromise, still get to see a lot of game play and "incidents" of interest.

21-06-2018, 11:09 AM
Another major thing that both broadcasters are doing which (personally) makes the game more enjoyable is the lack of 'colour commentator'.

So good just having one voice giving you the run of the game without have {former player/coach} chiming in with the most moronic of contributions.

Give me Martin Tyler, give me the crowd noise, and let it rip.

Agree 100%, its the same with cricket commentary old vs new. Used to have Benaud silent half the time, and chime in when he had something to say. Now you just have no dead air time and constant anecdotes and unnecessary superlatives about standard play.

I had the same thought last night watching one of the games and enjoyed during a quiet passage of play when the team was just knocking the ball amongst defenders and the commentator said nothing for around 20 seconds. Viewers don't need a play by play of [CB-1] passes to [CB-2] who pauses, then passes back to [CB-1]

It was on live as well on Fetch...I watched it. Did you watch Optus Sport 1 Live or Optus Sport App....big difference.

Push the TV Guide button....how are you watching the Portugal game now?

Found it this morning

Searched a bit more

Stayed away from the app on Fetch for Optus sport

Looked for the live tv

Was out at a licensed venue watching it

The TV in the next room was on a couple of seconds earlier

****s started celebrating when Gypo was just stroking the pen home

I find the SBS footage sharper than the Optus image. Have you found the same?

Do you mean picture quality? Iíve only watched SBS for the 3 Aussie games. Quality wise Iíve found the Optus replays pretty good too. Iím not great at picking up small visual differences though. And I watch Optus on either phone or laptop compared to TV for SBS.

tl:dr... not really lol

Not too long.

I was refering to picture quality, yes. I'm streaming through Xbox onto the TV and found the quality of optus to be slightly inferior (brightness and sharpness) than SBS.

Well...all up I prefer the Optus coverage. Great to call up highlights and games in demand.
Panel has more variety and fun over Lucy and Foz. That said the reasonable panelists....Aloisi, Okon, Tarek, Oggy, Johnno and Mel is balanced by absurdity of having Smeltz, Wilkinson, Wilkshire, Rosso and Matt McKay ffs.

Hopefully they can fix the technical glitches although I worry how all this is going to go with our shitful NBN system we have
