English Premier League is returning to Optus Sports, as Liverpool takes on Norwich City on August 10, 2019. It will also mark its four years of Premier League Broadcast as Optus Sports vows to telecast all matches if this season live.
“Having the Australian rights to show every single match of the Premier League exclusively live is an enormous opportunity for Optus Sport,” Corin Dimopoulos said in a statement. “Our suite of exclusively live premium sport content, which also includes the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, notably increases with the renewal of the Premier League this season. We are extending our production of mini-matches and highlights, giving our customers the ability to watch Premier League action when they want and how they want so they don’t miss a minute of their team’s action.” He added. Corin Dimopoulos is the Head of Television and Content at Optus Sports.
“Making the Premier League available on Optus Sport through 5G is a world first,” Clive Dickens said. “This will be the first of many 5G initiatives we will take at Optus.” Clive Dickens is the VP of Television, Content & Product Development at Optus.
Optus experienced one of its most successful years ever as 2018 and 2019 broke many of its viewing and customer engagement records. It also unveiled the number of accounts subscribed to it which stands around 700,000 as of now. Optus has also introduced a $10 Add On for its prepaid users. This offer will make the premium content available to user for as long as 28 days. This offer, with Optus rights to broadcast other European football events like UCL and UEL, is expected to bring in more subscribers for Optus.
