Optus is kicking goals with its exclusive sports streaming service.
Sports coverage has changed a lot in recent years. Pay TV used to be the only way to watch your favourite teams play live from the comfort of your couch, but now we're seeing far more options, not just in the free-to-air market but through Netflix-like sports streaming services, too. Optus is one of the biggest Aussie companies to throw its hat into this ring, partnering with the English Premier League to offer exclusive coverage online through Optus Sport.
Optus Sport combines live and on-demand streams of the latest EPL matches with dedicated 24/7 programming featuring news, interviews and exclusive insights from football experts. At a fraction of the cost of a Foxtel subscription, Optus Sport is a strong contender in the sports coverage game.
How much does Optus Sport cost?
Optus Sport was originally only available to Optus customers, but it has since opened up subscriptions to any Australians willing to pay the entry fee. This fee is $14.99/month, payable directly through the Optus Sport app on iTunes or Google Play. Existing Optus customers can choose instead to add an Optus Sport subscription onto their plan for the same $14.99/month.
Alternatively, certain Optus mobile and Internet plans come with an Optus Sport subscription bundled in at no extra cost.
What does Optus Sport get me?
English Premier League
With live streams of all 380 matches of the current EPL season, 290 of which you can go back and watch on-demand as often as you like, Optus Sport has plenty to offer EPL fans. Whether you're at home or on-the-go, you'll have access to all the latest news, live streams and full-match replays on a wide range of mobile and non-mobile devices.
For even more insight into the league, you can stream a dedicated 24/7 EPL channel hosted by a team of Premier League experts anytime.
