Seems so. It's a Fetch exclusive, not an Optus one. Apparently it will be a dedicated channel with a $9 a month subscription. Just activate it on the box as usual for other packages
We haven’t been given a date from Fetch. We do know retail Fetch boxes (JB/Harvey Norman) will receive this first.
We are yet to announce when we will be getting it but it has been confirmed it will be on Fetch boxes from Optus.
Hot off the press:
A new addition coming to Optus Fetch TV soon… Eurosport!
Bringing you even more premium international sports content with more than 2,000 hours of live sports coverage each year.
Launch Date: February 1st 2020
