Hi, I would like to view Optus Sport through my VAST satellite system when traveling in my caravan. I do not have a mobile or Internet plan, I just have Optus Sport. Is this possible and if so how do I get it enabled?
Hmm, this isn't something that's come in the past @Pavers66
Do you currently have access to Optus Sport on your VAST satellite service?
According to Optus Sport - Satellite FAQ's, there's a few things you'll need to get going.
It doesn't look like you'll be able to use this service on the move, but our team would be able to confirm this for you.
For more info, you can phone the team on → 1800 230 158.
Hi Dan, thank you for your response but you should really do your homework first. This issue has come up before but no clear guidance has been provided. You should also find out exactly what VAST is and how it is used by travellers.
YES!!!! Dan C,
Please take note that this is a subject that has been raised in the past, and I was not the first person to broach this subject either. Just ask your fellow moderators Brock_E and GuyCS,
This is a good indication that the system is indeed broken and that there is room for improvement. Customers aren't fools and soon learn when someone is only paying lip service to their concerns.
Kudos to Pavers66 for bringing this to light.
Contact Optus sports and request a satellite subscription using your existing VAST card
The satellite subscription is an additional $20pm on top of your existing Optus Sports Sub of $15.if you are an existing Optus Mobile customer this may be wa Ed.
Optus use a 3rd party to provide the card activation etc, so you will be redirected to themdurring the conversation.
took me 4hours to have the card activated with Optus Sports. I’ve had it for 3 years now with no issues.
unlike the stream, this is actual live not x amount of seconds delayed and all 6 chs are in 1080p
Be persistent with the operator as many do not know Optus satellite exists.
Hope this helped.
Thanks for the heads up on that.
Do you use VAST because you are living in a fringe area or travelling with a caravan?
I ask this as because in the past the Optus staff have spoken about checking 'strata title' and insisted that they will have to check the roof for installation even though I have stated that the system is portable and for use with a mobile caravan.
Anybody can apply for VAST even if you are in a city location. But only the ABC/SBS will be activated. If you are in a fringe area then relevant comercial service will be activated.
What you tell the Optus operator is that you allready have a VAST card and dish then they just send you to satellite installs and they take the details and arrange to activate your card.
Optus Satellite can also provide you with an appropriate decoder and instal a dish for $250 (well that was what they offered me 3 years ago) I would say that was were the confusion with strata came in the conversation. They were trying to da a fresh dog natal.
If you don’t allready have an active VAST setup and card then my opinion would be get a VAST card activated as traveler. Then get Optus to add the EPL to it. It’s a lot simpler then doing a per name to resudence.
With a travelers card just remeber to keep reregistering it every 6 months to keep it active (a simple phone call and no proof of location is required)
Make sure you have the satellite setup active when you get the cards enqnled.
I already have a SatKing VAST setup with my caravan which I renew every 6 months, and occasionally have to request a rehit as it is not connected permanently.
I have obviously been stonewalled over the connection of the English Premier League. Contributor 'greynomadepl' on another thread that relates to this subject will be interested with your advice, so I will direct him to this thread.
Kind regards and a kudo left for you 🙂
glad to assist just persist here is a contact number to try as well 02 8748 2589 they are the actual people who organize the whole setup activation.
just keep persisting. To be honest I dont think there is many Optus EPL sat customers except pubs abd clubs but certauinly no reason to stop you getting it.
I have just purchased an Optus DHR 4901 OPT Satellite receiver which is designed to receive VAST and Optus Sport.
I have enabled the Optus Smartcard for VAST but am unable to register it for Optus Sport.
NOBODY in Optus seems to be aware of the receiver.
Does anybody know how I van have the smartcard enabled to receive Optus Sport and EPL?
