Optus Premier League pre-order offer slashes the cost

With the English Premier League set to kick off in August, Optus has opened up pre-orders for its EPL Coverage.

Optus has bet a significant amount of money on the English Premier League. With the first match of the 2016/17 season approaching, the telco is starting to try and make some of that money back by opening up preorders for its EPL coverage.

While the first EPL match of the season won't kick off until 13 August, Optus is now letting potential customers sign up so they can make sure they are ready to go for when the season officially starts.

To make pre-ordering a more attractive proposition, Optus is offering the 2016/17 season for free when you sign up to a Premier League plan on selected Optus mobile and broadband plans before 31 July.

Optus has already announced that it is planning to bundle the EPL for free with broadband plans that cost more than $85 a month. That means that this pre-order offer is only going to apply to a small subset of new broadband customers who sign up for the $60 My Basics Broadband plan. Customers signing up for this plan after July 31 will need to pay an additional $15 a month to access the EPL stream.

The pre-order offer will therefore be much more relevant to mobile customers, who will be able to get access to the EPL coverage for free for as little as $30 a month on the Optus $30 a month SIM-only plan. That's going to make access via Optus even cheaper than watching the EPL at the pub.

As an added bonus, customers who do pre-order won't have to wait until August before they can get their football fix, with Optus promising to showcase Premier League highlights and reruns until the official season kicks off.
