English Premier League returns to Optus Sport
Manchester City take on Arsenal and Aston Villa play Sheffield United.
English Premier League returns to Optus Sport from Thursday when Manchester City take on Arsenal and Aston Villa play Sheffield United.
The Premier League was suspended on 13 March due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will return with new kick-off times and matches played behind closed doors.
“The Premier League’s return is a huge moment for live sport and we’re thrilled to reconnect our passionate Optus Sport customers to what they love,” Optus’ Head of TV and Content, Corin Dimopoulos, said.
“We have re-built our app from the ground-up to give football fans the best possible experience when streaming live or on-demand. The new app design is bursting with more content, archives and competitions, two round-the-clock football channels, personalised content feeds and a new ‘Match Centre’, which combines all the coverage and stats in one place.
“Optus Sport is the exclusive Australian home of the world’s most watched football league and we can’t wait to bring every game live and on-demand to our customers from 18 June.”
Optus Sport will show all 92 remaining live games when the 2019/20 season provisionally restarts.
Viewers have the option to experience games with virtual crowd noise to replicate the unique, vibrant atmosphere of each stadium, meaning grounds such as Anfield will sound like Anfield.
Optus Sport has launched a new mobile app with innovative new features and an improved layout to engage fans and provide an even more immersive experience.
Optus Sport recently became the first Australian broadcaster to resume live major football after landing Australian rights to K League, which started streaming on May 8.
