Re: Optus sport 1080p

Hi Oethesaint,


We are always working on changing and improving Optus Sport to give our customers the best sport viewing experience possible. 

We recently improved the quality of viewing Optus Sport channels 1 to 6 on the Fetch Mighty and Mini set top box.


To be able to view these changes customers will need to have the following

  • A stable internet connection over 5.5Mbps
  • Either a Fetch Mighty or a Mini set top box
  • A compatible TV

For a Mini STB the customer will need to have a TV that displays 1080p at 50Hz

For a Mighty STB the customer will need to have a TV that displays 4K. With this TV the Fetch STB will need to be set at 2160p at 50Hz.


In Fetch you are able to go to the following


Menu > Manage > Settings > Audio and Visual > Video > Display Resolution


Mini should display 1080P @ 50HZ

Mighty Should display 2160P @ 50HZ

Hey @Oethesaint


Currently, incoming Optus Sport feeds are received in 720p. Fetch’s recent adoption of the latest compression technology has allowed them to upscale our 6 Optus Sport channels from 720p to 1080p (full HD) without impacting bandwidth requirements. Remember, this is available across Fetch Gen3 Mighty and Mini only.

Re: Optus sport 1080p

Thanks dan_c - I assume the fetch picture settings need to be set to 1080p to receive the upscaled picture quality?

. Mini should display 1080P @ 50HZ

Re: Optus sport 1080p

Hi plaver,


I believe 720p.


From June 2020 Optus will launch 4K Ultra HD Live Football content on Optus Sport which will mean that Optus 5G Home customers can enjoy selected games from the Euro 2020 tournament, the 2020/21 Champions League and the 2020/21 Premier League in stunning 4K Ultra HD Streaming quality.

Re: Optus sport 1080p

Can I have the definitive answer, not I think 🤔

Why is 4K availability being restricted to only a dozen people???

Definitely 720p.
4K is in the works to be rolled out on a bigger scale.
