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
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.
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.
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.
