Optus offers up 7 day trial of Optus Sport
Watch most (but not all) of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 for absolutely nothing.
Ever since it picked up the rights to the EPL, along with a host of international football competitions, Optus has used those rights as a way to entice customers into signing up for Optus mobile or Optus broadband packages. While customers on lower tier plans could pay an additional fee for Optus Sport access, many higher cost plans bundled Optus Sport access in as a free extra.
What Optus hasn't done much of previously is offer up free trial access, but that's precisely what it's going to do around the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017, held in Russia from 18 June 2017 through to 3 July 2017. Anyone who fancies a look at Optus Sport can sign up for a 7 day no-obligation trial of the service through Optus' web site.
So what's the catch? You can only sign up for one 7 day trial, which won't cover the entire tournament, and you've got to supply a unique mobile phone number when you sign up. You're also agreeing to Optus marketing communications, even if you're not already an Optus customer.
After the 7 day trial concludes your access to Optus Sport ceases. If you wanted to keep watching after that time, you'd require an eligible Optus service and a subscription to Optus Sport if it's not already bundled in with that service.
