SBS strike EPL deal with Optus
Fans will be able to choose their level of access to EPL content from the following options:
Every match live: Australia’s first 24/7 EPL channel boasts up to nine sub-channels for viewers.
Dedicated EPL channel: Devoted exclusively to the English Premier League, Optus’ 24/7 EPL channel will carry all 380 live matches of the 2016-2017 season, as well as EPL news and analysis offered in Australia with shows including Match of the Week, News, Fanzone and Match Day Live.
Un-metered EPL: Streaming EPL over the Optus mobile and fixed network will be data free on eligible plans. This means customers accessing the content from an eligible plan will be able to stream as much EPL content as they want, without using their mobile, mobile broadband or home broadband data allowance.
Device of your choice: Optus will launch new mobile and tablet apps, and a dedicated website that will allow customers to synch up to four devices through their subscription.
Screen-in-screen viewing: Subscriptions come with access to a dedicated new website that supports up to four screens, for those times when games are on at the same time.
Ben White, Managing Director of Marketing and Product at Optus said, “From mobile plans with generous data and call inclusions, through to home broadband plans that come with unlimited data, Yes TV by Fetch, and the EPL included, Optus has a great range of EPL plans suited to all lifestyles and budgets.”
All Optus EPL content will also be available on Fetch TV.
Existing customers can check online whether they are already on an EPL eligible plan when pre-order opens on 15 May.
