I am posting this hoping that someone from Optus will see this and be reminded that there is no Android TV app for Optus sport at present. Most streaming platforms have Android TV apps, and it would be great to have an Optus Sport version for 2 main reasons:
1.Chromecast is unreliable - casting often fails or stops and then wont reconnect.
2. Android TV app would be far more convenient and easier to use - can control directly with a remote, and not have to rely on using a phone/tablet
Optus please consider releasing this Android TV app.
There was a brief period when I was able to sideload the FireTV Optus Sport App on to my AndroidTV and it worked great. subsequentupdates to Amazon/Android/Optus app stopped this from working as it was "sideloaded" but it did show what a great experience it could be to be able use Optus Sport directly from and Android TV/
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Echoing this! The Chromecast "workaround" is a steaming pile.
Totally unreliable and incredibly frustrating.
Both my mobile and Android TV have to be power cycled if I want to watch a second match.
Can somebody from Optus please acknowledge these complaints and advise why an Android TV app isn't available?
Do we need to remind you that this is a paid service?
Thanks for this valuable feedback.
We recommend logging a support case directly to the team via the Optus Sport app/website.
This is typical of what I’ve been saying as well. All this talk of Chromecast etc, etc, just to watch the football in 2019. It’s crap. Optus have no problem taking people’s money but can’t provide an App. They also gave the Gaul to block screen mirroring. They probably get a kickback from all the Chromecasts people have to buy
Hey guys, bit of a good news story.
