I think Sky do a few, but maybe only for their coverage.

i know in my case, i just buy the yearly pass. i think last year i got it for $99, but even at $199 its a good deal to be honest, especilly when you realise what they charge for sky in the UK

Ok this justifies the price increase a little.

true, but keep in mind the price doesn’t rise until august 1 so you can still get a year for $139 until than and with both EPL and LaLiga it is pretty attractive for that price

edit: if they got the serie a or Bundesliga rights it would be an absolute steal at $199

It’s worth it now especially with two leagues I follow most. I like Chelsea (men’s and women’s) in England plus Real Madrid every week.

Optus has inserted dedicated LaLiga and Premier league channels to their app Optus Sport 11 & 12 for what its worth. I am thinking they are either in test mode or the live bug is incorrectly inserted.

I also wonder if Optus Sport 2 is being removed off Fetch

Edit actually I think it might be a live feed of La Liga TV but the game itsetself is not live

This would be the feed of programming previous rights holder Be-In Sports showed content from across their channels. It’s similar to the club channels Foxtel previously carried, expect for the whole league.
