Definitely an error as that game is scheduled for May 10


Optus have told the AFR they will have discussions with SBS about whether they will continue to onsell some EPL games for the forthcoming season, but there is no guarantee the arrangement will be renewed.


It could mean Optus on-selling EPL matches to a commercial network. EPL has never been shown live on commercial channels here in Australia.


Didn’t One (HD) show highlights of particular matches early on?


One had Liverpool TV and Arsenal TV. So technically showed EPL but didn’t have rights per se.


I should have specified it referred to live broadcast.


Seeing SBS has the FIFA rights until 2022, you would think that it’s probably more likely than not that both parties will simply extend their current FIFA/EPL arrangement perhaps with SBS also getting some rights to whatever other properties Optus gets the rights to (Nations League, perhaps Champions League, etc)


SBS have announced first 2 rounds of FTA World Cup fixtures.

Also, they’ve secured rights to show a Sweden vs Denmark friendly in the lead up to the WC on 3rd June.


SBS will show the final game of the Premier League season next Sunday (May 13) straight after the Eurovision Song Contest grand final encore. Due to time difference, the match may not be shown live in SA, NT or WA.


The game can air live in SA & NT - all SBS would need to do is skip the pre-game and go straight to the match after Eurovision.

For WA, they might use SBS Viceland to show the EPL

Go the blues!


French Open began last night.

Some caps:


Is there any local hosting or is it just the world feed on relay?
