Seeing its only days out from new EPL season was wondering if Optus Sport is still only capable of being streamed in HD 720p?
It sure looks like it!
I'm having the same problem as others on this forum. When its slow-motion, or zoomed in, the picture is crystal clear. But whenever there is any movement of the camera, the ball and the players become extremley blurry, and is unwatchable. This is both through the Fetch mini and chromecast platforms on my Hisense 4k TV.
Is this problem going to be resolved soon? Seeing that I'm now paying for this service.
Hi @pistolpete40 I'm really sorry to hear about the issues you've experienced with your EPL streaming, at this point in time we will be streaming matches in 720p unless you have a satellite service. If you'd like to trouble shoot your service you can speak with our dedicated EPL tech team on 1800230158 to help optimise your viewing.
Sorry to open up old wounds 🙂
Just wondering with Optus keeping hold of the epl rights (and upcoming World Cup) are there plans going forward to have the broadcast of one or both of these competitions available in Full HD 1080p or 4k even via fetch mini? After two seasons it is still only 720p and not utilising the technology in most if not all TV's on the market.
Thanks for your help.
Sorry for the late response @Njm. Plans to increase quality haven't been announced so it's not something we could confirm at this stage I'm afraid.
So, 6 months on from this last post - any news from Optus on improving the quality of the streams? This should be priority number one for Optus - I honestly don't know why nothing has changed in 2 and a half years (since this thread first started).
There are multiple illegitimate streams available online, shared by individuals from their home computers that are Full HD / 50fps - how is it that a major telecoms company, who have paid a lot of money for the exclusive rights to the EPL / UEFA Champions League / UEFA Europa League / UEFA Nations League can't offer similiar streams?
Don't even get me started on the lack of 4K.....
Hopefully Foxtel's recent launch of a 4K channel will light the fire.
What a joke. Two and a half years on and they still can't broadcast games in hd. An absolute joke. The amount of money you paid and then all the issues you had initially you'd think you'd wanna get it all perfect. Yeah right. Everyone stuck in SD watching epl games at all hours of the morning. Going backwards in technology.
It's november 2020 and still nothing has changed. Optus Sport is in 720p. Unacceptable in this day and age. Every website and his dog has videos in 1080p. They have even higher resolutions. Optus can't even seem to meet the bear minimum standard in this day and age. Services such as Kayo Sport have 1080p and even offer a split screen option so you can watch multiple games at once. You are being left in the dust Optus.
