Optus extends Premier League broadcast rights

Optus extends Premier League broadcast rights”

The new subscription service will be made available ahead of this summer's Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation, when Optus Sport will provide coverage of all 64 matches from the tournament, which will be available for the first time to non-Optus subscribers and Optus customers.

As the only broadcaster in Australia with rights to every game for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Optus Sport has announced non-Optus customers can subscribe to their service for $14.99 a month.

"Optus is an excellent partner for the League and we look forward to continuing to work with them to make available the best possible Premier League content to fans across the country".

A direct-to-customers subscription option for Optus Sport will give all punters - not just eligible Optus telecommunications customers - access to live coverage of every English Premier League game over the coming seasons, as well as live coverage of every game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which kicks off on June 15th Australian time. Two quarter final match ups will be exclusively broadcast on the Optus Sport app. In addition to the match coverage, subscribers will be given pre and post game analysis, in both live and on demand viewing options. "These teams will be led by former Socceroo Mark Schwarzer and Optus Sport's Richard Bayliss, and will provide a unique insight into events throughout the whole tournament", he added. This means the free-to-air broadcaster will show 25 games from the tournament.

"Additional features include Start Over, meaning if you've missed the start of a live match you can simply select the start over option and jump straight back to the start of the match", Lew said.

Eight months ago, Optus signed the first agreement to take the sport's reach beyond its own network, allowing Tabcorp to broadcast the EPL on Sky Racing.
