The countdown to the biggest sporting event on earth is on.

 

Optus Sport has the exclusive rights to broadcast all 64 matches from the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ live, plus we’ll have round-the-clock coverage, highlights and interviews from the tournament. Please note: Optus is not a sponsor of or associated with the Socceroos or Football Federation Australia.

 

Will the Socceroos be there? Only time will tell. After scraping through with a 2-1 extra-time win over Syria, Australia now face Honduras in the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ Intercontinental Playoff (CONCACAF-Asian zone). The result of these matches (one away, one at home) will decide which team heads to Russia next June.

 

Update - 16 November: After their epic 3-1 win over Honduras on Weds 15 November, the 'Roos have now cemented their place in Russia! Congratulations to Mile and the team.

Hey @beaver21s, no we're not showing the qualifiers but we will have all 64 games from the tournament next June! Got my fingers crossed for the Socceroos on Wednesday though Smiley Happy

I'm afraid that it's not something that'll be available in time for the World Cup. I know we initially had plans to roll out an Optus Sport application specifically for use on certain models of Smart TV's but it's not something that we're actively working on at this time. Optus Sport is currently available for use on a number of media playback devices, including Chrome cast, Fetch and Apple TV.
