I wish to purchase an Optus Sport Premium subscription through the Optus Sport App on Apple TV (installed already) but I cannot find the way to create an account and subscribe through the application. I am not an Optus customer. I just want to subcribe to that particular Optus service. The app points me to the website but the website requires me to be an Optus customer first. I'm stuck.
Any help is highly apprecaited.

That's odd that you can't sign up. What options are available to you on the Apple TV Optus Sport app?
Thanks for that.
I have asked our Optus Sport team and will respond here as soon as I hear back from them.
It's been suggested to subscribe using the mobile phone. If Apple, the App Store will prompt to charge the service. Also there will be a prompt to select an username (email address) to log into Optus Sport. Once done, he can use the same credentials to log via the Apple TV.
Let us know how you go.
It worked after installing Optus Sport app on my iPhone (very old), creating an account and activiting the service using that app. I think Optus should state clearly on the website that the Optus Sport app on Apple TV cannot be used to create an account and activate the service. In any case, thanks for the tips.

My question is similar in that I want to know is there any equivalent subscription via app for Google Play Store? I am using subscribing via Apple App Store.
I am considering switching to Android device phone (yeah, the "Dark side" according to Apple), but I am worried that I will lose the Sports subscription that I am currently enjoying. I want understand how it works before making the switch.
Absolutely 🙂 You can purchase a stand-alone premium subscription in-app.
First, you'll want to deactivate your existing subscription via Apple app store:
1. Launch the Settings app.
2. Tap iTunes & App Store.
3. Tap on your Apple ID.
4. Tap View Apple ID when the pop-up window appears.
5. Enter your Apple ID password, Face ID, or Touch ID when prompted.
6. Tap Subscriptions.
7. Tap the Subscription you want to cancel
Next, Download the Optus Sport app from the Google Play Store
Once you launch the app, you'll see the option to sign up. Simply follow the prompts 😄
