**Note this is not an official work around and is not supported by Optus**

 

I’ve seen plenty of Windows Phone users who want to be able to watch the EPL on their phones but can’t. If you’ve already looked, you would have found that there’s no app in the app store and if you try and play them in browser, you get sound but no picture. Annoying huh?

 

Well I’m not a Windows Phone user myself but I’ve seen a few people find a work around. As I stated above, no Optus rep has suggested doing this and isn’t something they endorse as far as I can see. That said, I can in no way see this doing any harm so if you’re interested I’d suggest giving it a go (although anything you do on your handset is on you should something go wrong).

 

The work around is simple. Simply access sport.optus.com.au via your browser and then in the settings, force it to access the desktop site. Now the Optus Sport site was built responsivle (basically meaning the site can shrink to any size and offer relatively the same experience) so you should notice little to no difference. Once on the desktop site, play a video and it should work Smiley Happy

 

Now like I said, this is something users have found on their own so isn’t supported by Optus. It might not work forever and if you have any problems, calling Optus will be hopeless so you’re on your own. If you find any other workarounds or helpful tips, make sure you modify my article so everyone else can see it.
