Hey Yeldarb, not sure what you mean by satellite. Optus Sport is only available via internet service. The Fetch Box allows streaming in 1080p but it is a bit expensive and limited with Apps, so I wanted to know if the Optus Sport app on the Fire TV stick allows 1080p streaming.

Business customers such as pubs in certain areas can order a satellite based service for Optus Sport.

Some regional customers can also do this through existing equipment.

For everyone else, I know that optus sport is currently limited to 720p 50fps (as that's what the source feed for epl is currently set to).

Next year 4k will be a further option for some.

Did someone on Yes Crowd answer your question?

Re: Optus Sport Fire TV 1080p

It was a bit of a mistery to me what satellite services Optus offered however every time one of the forum regulars said 720p was the maximum for Optus Sport an Optus staff member said it was available via satellite at 1080p. Paddylee has expanded on that explanation Billy so now we both know.
