What games will be available on demand? I'm specifically interested in the Man City game. Ta

Hey @Devo-McDuff - Not 100% too sure! I'll get in touch with the community manager, and have an update provided on the blog. Sorry!

C'mon Optus Sport, 7 hours ago someone asked about the On-demand times. Those of us that don't have Fetch boxes need to know this each week so we can plan whether we have to watch live or can watch a reply whenever we like.  This info is availabe days earlier, please get with the program

Exactly AussieDoor. It seems its going to be the same shambles as last season.

Hey guys, these articles will always mention which games aren't available on-demand. You can also see this via the app, website, and Yes TV by Fetch, the games have a pink "Available on-demand" banner underneath the thumbnail. Every game this round will be available, they get uploaded as fast as possible when the game has finished, typically ready to stream within 5-30 minutes.

So every game every week will be available on demand basically within half an hour of game completion? If not then they need to be. The set up last season was crap. Missed many games because of not being on demand. Never had that issue when Foxtel had the rights. Needs to be sorted!

Totally understand your concerns @pantskyle.  If any game is not available on demand and then the game is certainly replayed. Please let us know if you need a hand with anything else.

The question is, why aren't all games on demand every week? What is preventing that? You have the rights so don't make us wait for a replay on a service which runs like crap anyway.

Hi @Devo-McDuff, we are permitted to show 29 matches per club per season on-demand.

You can find more info on this HERE

We do release the match schedule which lists which games are On Demand through our Blog HERE
