I am interested in finding out more information about Optus Sport Basic.
The details on this page (https://www.optus.com.au/content/dam/optus/appendix/appendix-o/AppO.doc) say Optus Sport Basic offers "limited access" to full EPL match replays and EPL match and other highlights, among other things.
Could somebody please explain what "limited access" actually means? Does it mean not all matches will be available to watch via replay? Does it mean the matches will only be available for replay for a limited time? Or something else entirely?
Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but I couldn't find any details on this. Any more informaition on this would be much appreciated.
See this previous post:
Thanks for your reply. However, I did read that previous post and it didn't answer my specific questions. So if a moderator is out there reading this post your help would be greatly appreciated.
The content will be different every week. "Limited" just means the full catalogue of VOD games won't be accessible, but selected content instead. I couldn't specify exactly how many, or what games that would be though.
I just wanted to follow up about this Optus Sport Basic package. I have registered for the Basic Package and this weekend there doesn't seem to be any matches available on replay, and none of the highlights or clip shows are available to watch.
Will the amount of content available this weekend as a Basic Package subscriber be indicative of what will typically be available in the weeks and months ahead?
Hi @jordyc, I believe that for now, the free content on offer is quite limited. At this point in time there doesn't seem to be any visibility on what listed content is actually available for Basic Optus Sport subscribers. I've been advised that you'd be required to click on the video itself to determine whether you'll have access.
Thanks for the reply. I have had a click around and these are my observations.
It seems as of now Basic subscribers have no access to watch content in the match replays category and no access to watch content in the match highlights category.
And it looks like there is limited access for videos in the shorts, shows and specials categories.
Finally, it appears there is full access in the interviews, press conferences, news and classic matches categories.
I guess you get what you pay for, given it is a free service.
The SPORT is spending your day trying to get it to work,simples free exercise for a monthly fee👍👍
Or seeing how long you can watch the buffering going around before psychosis sets in,no record yet as everyone is still watching 😂😂
