Hi DanielK19,

What Chromecast do you have?

@Davelew has been really helpful advising that it may depend how old it is, what version you have, etc.

Re: Chromecast not working



In my experience I don't think this is a problem with the generation of the Chromecast.

Have you tried casting from a different device i.e. your laptop or PC  from the Chrome browser or a friend's Android phone. If the issue still occurs I would then see if you could borrow someone else's Chromecast dongle and try with that.

The only other thing I can think some people do have issues if they are using VPN or they have changed the DNS addresses as Chromecast will use the Google servers.

Re: Chromecast not working for Optus Sport live EPL games

Hi Daniel,

i have the same issues even using Chromecast Ultra with a 2019 Samsung Smart TV. In a nutshell the problem is......Optus. They do not have the infrastructure or technology to handle the EPL. They will take everyone’s money and that’s about it. I have just added Optus sport for the EPL and will not be continuing with it after just one month. Bottom line ..... it’s crap. 

They should admit defeat and give it back to Foxtel who never had these problems
