If you're a fan of football in Australia, chances are strong you follow the English Premier League. Known as the most watched and most widely supported football league globally, the EPL possesses many of the biggest names, most successful managers and best stadiums on earth.

While viewing options for the Premier League have varied in Australia across free and pay TV over the years, the 2020/21 campaign will mark the fifth straight season Australian telco Optus has held the exclusive broadcast rights. It all gets underway on Saturday 12 September (AEST).

Stream the English Premier League on Optus Sport

While Optus Sport's first contract signed back in 2015 controversially restricted access to its own mobile and Internet customers only, that was eased when it extended its agreement by a further three years in 2018. Once again this year, anyone in Australia can sign up as Liverpool FC defend their drought-breaking 2019/20 title.

Optus Sport's subscription streaming service features coverage of every single game in every round all EPL season long. So whether you're a fan of Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Wolves, returning giants Leeds United or any of the top-flight's 20 clubs, you can watch your team, live or on demand. Respected commentator Simon Hill has also joined the Optus stable to offer a familiar voice to commentary.

Your subscription also gets you much more than just a live game on a Saturday night. Optus features 24/7 content dedicated to EPL programming. Highlights, press conferences, chat shows and various entertainment offerings are all there too. Optus also has the rights to international friendlies as next year's rescheduled Euro 2020 competition.

How to sign up for Optus Sport

You have a few options for signing up to Optus Sport. Existing Optus customers may already have access to it for free as the telco bundles a premium subscription to the service with many of its plans.

If you're not an Optus customer or your Optus plan doesn't come with a free Optus Sport membership, you can sign up to the service separately for $14.99/month.

With Optus Sport, you'll have access to all the latest league news, results, fixtures and statistics anytime and anywhere via the Optus Sport website or mobile app. Last season, all 380 matches were available live and on demand, as full replays or as 25-minute mini matches.

How much does Optus Sport cost?

Assuming it's not bundled in for free with your Optus plan, an Optus Sport subscription will set you back $14.99/month. Existing Optus customers can add the subscription onto their current plan by contacting Optus, while non-Optus customers can purchase the subscription directly through the Optus Sport app.

Both new and existing Optus customers can also add Yes TV by Fetch to their Optus Sport subscription for an extra $5 a month. The Yes TV package includes a Fetch Mini set-top box capable of watching Optus Sport on your TV, along with a basic Fetch subscription.

Which devices are compatible with Optus Sport?

With Optus Sport, it doesn’t matter whether you're at home or on the go; most modern, Internet-capable devices will happily stream the EPL wherever you are.

For computer users, the Optus Sport website provides access to all things EPL. Optus Sport can be watched on PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices, or on your TV via Fetch, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One or Telstra TV.

Each Optus Sport subscription supports up to four devices per account. Standard subscribers are limited to streaming on one device at a time, with Yes TV by Fetch subscribers able to stream to their Fetch set-top box plus one other device simultaneously.

How much data does Optus Sport use?

All EPL content streamed through Optus Sport on an Optus mobile, home broadband or mobile broadband connection is unmetered, meaning it won't count against your monthly data limit. If you're not an Optus mobile or broadband customer, on the other hand, streaming through Optus Sport will take a toll on your download cap.

As a general guide, streaming EPL matches through a computer uses a maximum of 1.6GB per hour, while streaming on a mobile device uses a maximum of 900MB per hour.

What about Europe's other top football leagues?

For most other global football leagues outside those mentioned above, Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports are usually the place to go. Every A-League game, the EFL, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, MLS, Copa America, Africa Cup of Nations and more can all be found there, along with more than 50 sports all up.
