Hi guys, just a quick FYI from our TV & Content team:
Changes have been made to the Optus Sport website, which'll require customers to update their browsers. Previously, the minimum requirement was Chrome version 59 and all versions released thereafter.
Minimum Brower requirements for Optus Sport (Chrome & Firefox) are now as follows:
Customers attempting to access the Optus Sport website will receive an error message prompting them to upgrade their browser.
The newest updates can be found by following the URL below, although the prompt will direct you to download the required update.
Note - No changes are made for Microsoft Edge & Safari.
With these new minimum requirements, the newer versions of chrome, firefox and edge have removed support for the silverlight plugin. I have been getting a "the video player failed to load" error. Any advice on how to fix this. Have tried re-installing multiple browsers and re-installing silverlight.
I don't very often use Chrome to watch Optus Sports as I tend to use the Android app and cast to my TV.
I have tried to login to Optus Sport today using chrome on my Windows 10 PC and can't, screen print attached. Also the same using Edge.
I have the latest version of Chrome, Version 73.0.3683.86, which was updated on 20th March and I am wondering if this is causing the problem. However, I would have thought this would have been brought to light previously.
So not much help from me but I am sure @Yeldarb will have all the answers.
