EPL games on-demand

Why are there only 290 games on-demand promised in the advertising for Optus sport coverage of EPL? Last time I looked there were 380 games in the season

Re: EPL games on-demand

Hi

That's true for last season but my understanding for this coming season all games will be available on-demand.

I would like confirmation but here is an extract from an article in the SMH: 

 

The mobile and broadband provider's sports broadcasting arm will screen the next three seasons of EPL, from August 2019 to 2022, with exclusive coverage of every match played, including live, on-demand, replay and short-form for all 380 games.

 

Dave

Thanks Dave

Hopefully it will be ALL 380. Not sure what the media release showing 290 was all about?

Perhaps someone at Optus sport can confirm it IS 380?

Re: EPL games on-demand

@eyaj, I'm just trying to locate the comms we received. I'm 99% sure that we'll be making each and every game available on demand this season. 

I'm just waiting for a bit more info from a colleague. I'll shoot through an update once that comes through. 

 

Edit - I did find an article which includes the statement that @Davelew has posted.

Thanks for the confirmation @Dan_C.

Now all we need is for Liverpool to win the premiership this coming season.
