Help please! I am visiting from the UK and the Optus sport app is not available on the UK itunes store. I am happy yo watch through the browser but it appears that the only way to sign up is through the Optus app. Is there another way to sign up for Optus sport so I can watch the world cup whislt I am here??
Optus Sport is only viewable inside Australia I'm afraid (Optus are having a hard enough time streaming it to the locals, let alone half way across the globe ). You'll need to look at other local UK viewing options if you want to stream it overseas.
@petergdownload the question isnt to get Optus Sport in the UK its the issue where a Visitor from the UK comes to Aus but is unable to download the Optus Sport app as their phones marketplace is that of their home country - UK.
Only the AUS phone marketplace/app stores have the app so its not available.
Ways to watch are listed here:
I would have thought the easiest way is to create a new Apple ID for the Australian store. You just need a different email address to your UK address.i have IDs for Australia, UK and the USA.
Hope you enjoyed the Tunisia game, England played well and could easily have had 6 goals.
Normally changing store/marketplace on a device causes a reset of sorts.
Its a bad experence for someone who only wants to view one particular app.
Can you see the SBS FIFA app - Optus Sport Login works for that? - although not sure on their games through that app.
SBS football app is only available in Australia and I think they will only be showing all the games for 48 hours.
@Paddylee there used to be some problems with using different Apple stores but with recent updates these seem to have disappeared. Only inconvenience you need to switch stores for updates.
As @charliet100 days it is easy to change but best to have 2 Apple IDs as you will have trouble with updates on UK store only apps.
Just a quick note:
Optus is now offering Optus Sport to all Australians for free until the 31/08/18. Any customer who has purchased an Optus Sport subscription for the World Cup will be refunded.
If there any questions, feel free to reach out to myself or our other forum mods/community specialists.
