Watching Optus Sport when you’re overseas


Hey guys, just a quick FYI:


We wanted to provide some information on watching the EPL & other Optus Sport content with your subscription while you’re travelling overseas.


Unfortunately, we only have the rights to deliver Optus Sport content here in Australia, so while you can tune into games nationally, it’s not possible to do so while you’re in another country. This includes on-demand content such as replays and game highlights.

That’s the way the licensing system works.


If you did want to catch up on any action you may have missed while you are away, you can record all your team’s matches with Team Tags  (You will need to have a Fetch Mighty set top box).



To set up a Team Tag, follow the steps below:

  • Select Optus Sport from the TV drop down menu on the home screen
  • Scroll all the way right and select teams
  • Select the teams you wish to tag
  • Set team tag


We also suggest the following:


Because matches can start late or go into overtime. You should consider increasing the ‘recording end’ time on your team tag.


Your Fetch box should be left on standby mode when you are not using it. This enables it to action the match recording(s) you’ve scheduled. You will be unable to receive new updates or action recordings if your set top box is switched off.
