#EPL Fake Crowd Sounds post Covid 19 restart

Due to the restart of the EPL with empty stadiums, fake crowd sounds have been introduced in the broadcast. My understanding being that in the UK, there is an option for a broadcast version which does NOT include the fake crowd sounds. Is there a way to make this available to us here in Australia too? I appreciate some people might prefer the fake crowd sound but I personally don't and was very much looking forward to experiencing the games being able to hear the interactions of the players and coaching staff (similarly to the in the Bundesliga). I hope this is something that can be looked into. Thanks

Hi G-fonne,


Thanks for reaching out!


We currently have this option. You will just need to assure you're watching it on 'Optus Sports 2' when using the Optus Sports app or watching via the FetchTV.

Yes, I agree, fake crowd sound for the EPL is pretty bad and pointless.  I can't find any way to turn it off.  Off should be the default for live and replays, app or not.

What about for the replays though?... I'm rarely able to watch games live due to the time difference. The Fake Crowd Sounds during the Everton vs Liverpool game were absolutely dreadful.

But why is no fake noise sometimes available when I watch on my computer and sometimes not? I just can't find that option this morning and it's killing me...so patronising!

Hi @arthroscopy, From July 7, the ‘no crowd’ option will be made available for selected matches on Optus Sport 2 for the remainder of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

Re: #EPL Fake Crowd Sounds post Covid 19 restart

Yes, that option to view the no crowd noise on Optus Sport 2 was explicitly offered on the Liverpool game this morning. But it’s not clear how one accesses that channel using the web site. That’s exactly the issue that I’m asking for assistance with. Can you help?

Re: #EPL Fake Crowd Sounds post Covid 19 restart

Would you guys please consider introducing a No Fake Crowd option (perhaps in the settings or something) for at least the Mini Matches (24 min ones) and any longer replay? I suspect a number of people would be quite happy with this (even if they haven't manifested themselves on here). The fake crowd sounds are really unbearably bad, like a bad video game. Thanks a lot.

Re: #EPL Fake Crowd Sounds post Covid 19 restart

But we need the option for replays in Australia. Most of us don’t watch the games live so it’s useless to only have the option on Optus2. Honestly, the fake crowds are so annoying it has stopped me watching the games at all. I’ll probably cancel my subscription soon and just watch the highlights on YouTube.
