Optus Entertainment: Broadband and TV bundles

With Optus' broadband bundles, you can satisfy your Internet and entertainment needs in one easy package.

With the rise of high-speed Internet, more and more homes are shifting to a world where entertainment is delivered over a broadband connection. To take advantage of this, Optus offers a range of entertainment services alongside its Internet plans, giving you the option to combine them all into a single bill.

Two key services comprise Optus' entertainment offerings. The first is the pay TV service Fetch, while the second is Optus' own sports streaming service, Optus Sport.


Fetch on Optus

Optus TV Fetch Mighty

When adding the Fetch pay TV service to your Optus broadband plan, you can customise it to your liking. As an entry point, you can bundle in the Fetch Mini set-top box on its own and get access to catch-up TV services like 9Now and SBS On Demand as well as the ability to rent and buy movies and TV shows from the Fetch store. Alternatively, you can spring for the Fetch Mighty set-top box and gain the ability to watch 4K content and record up to 585 hours of live TV.

You can also choose from a range of premium Fetch channel packs which include popular channels like Nickelodeon, BBC First, MTV and ESPN. These packs are available for $6 per month each, or you can get all of them for $20 a month.

Optus Sport

Picture not described

The other half of Optus' entertainment offering is Optus Sport. Available bundled with select broadband plans or as a separate add-on, it targets sports fans, specifically those with a penchant for football. A subscription gets you 24/7 coverage encompassing the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and more.

Along with live matches, Optus Sport includes pre- and post-match analysis, interviews, special features and plenty of statistics to dive into.

Unlike Fetch, you can watch Optus Sport on a variety of devices. When you're at home, you can download the Optus Sport app to your Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV or Xbox One and start streaming directly to your TV. Alternatively, you can download the Optus Sport mobile app on your Apple or Android smartphone and cast the app to your smart TV or Google Chromecast.

The Optus Sport mobile app also lets you watch live games and access exclusive content on the go. The app is available on both Android and iOS devices. If you'd rather take a larger screen with you while you're out and about, any laptop or PC can access Optus Sport via the Optus Sport website.

    I am an existing cable TV customer.
    Can I extend my service to include FoxFlix?
    For Netflix, I need a 4K TV, but how do can I tell if my TV set is 4K or not ?

      Hi Bob,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      With regards to adding FoxFlix to your existing cable provider, you may need to speak with them directly to check if this can be added to your current plan. With regards to checking if your television is 4k capable, you may check on your television manual if it is indicated there. A 4k television refers to one of two high definition resolutions: 3840 x 2160 pixels or 4096 x 2160 pixels. 4K is four times the pixel resolution, or twice the line resolution (2160p), of 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels). The other high definition resolutions in use are 720p and 1080i. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie

    hi
    I live in Sydney and get Optus TV with Foxtel. I also have an Optus Broadband/Home Phone Bundle for $90 per month. Can I combine these two services as mentioned below and will this come with Premier League?
    Many thanks

    Subscribers who live in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane areas serviced by Optus’ hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) cable system can subscribe to Optus TV with Foxtel. Users can pay $25 a month (on top of a broadband plan) for a bundle including over 40 different channels:

      Hi Natasha,

      A Samsung tablet is similar to an iPad, except it runs on the Android operating system. You can access the internet and download word processing apps (like Microsoft Word) on both iPad and Samsung tablets. You should have no problem using a Samsung tablet for your diploma work.

      Cheers,
      Brodie

    I am considering switching from Foxtel to Optus Fetch TV.
    Is ARENA available? Also we have two set top boxes, can Optus Fetch TV offer this?

      BrodieApril 25, 2016

      Hi Alex,

      Unfortunately, Fetch TV does not have Arena and does not currently allow for two set-top boxes like Foxtel does.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

    Hi, I am moving house in Melbourne at the end of June. My new house has optus cable already connected.I have Foxtel at my current house.With Telstra. Can Optus offer me Foxtel(current Family iq2 entertainment pack)want to take that with me, with cable internet and phone connection in one package.

      Hi Peter,

      Optus do resell Foxtel packages under the “Optus TV Featuring Foxtel” banner including the IQ2 PVR along with their broadband services, so it should be entirely feasible to get Foxtel at your new home location. Optus’ cable packages already include home phone provision, so you’re already well covered there.

      Regards,

      Alex.

    Hi There,

    I currently have Foxtel and want to watch the EPL.
    With it being shown by Optus Tv from next season do I need to cancel Foxtel and sign up to one of these formats?

    Or can i have Optus TV EPL channel added to my Foxtel?

    Thanks

      Hi Bruno,

      Optus will supply EPL coverage via their Optus with Fetch TV service. You will also be able to download an EPL app or stream it directly from a dedicated website. Check this page for more information on Optus EPL coverage.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

    I have optus tv with fetch, can I get SoHo tv with fetch?

      BrodieAugust 31, 2015

      Hi Noreen,

      Unfortunately, SoHo is not available on Optus TV with Fetch. SoHo is exclusive to Foxtel. We’ve reviewed Foxtel’s streaming platform, Foxtel Play, here. Check it out if you’d like to know more about the service.

      Thanks,

      Brodie
