Optus has extended its relationship for exclusive Australian rights to the English Premier League (EPL) for a further three seasons, commencing in August 2019.

This includes exclusive live coverage on Optus Sport for every EPL match, as well as full on-demand, replay and short-form rights for all 380 matches from 2019 to 2022.

Optus CEO Allen Lew said: “One of the great things about Australian football fans is their passion for the sport, and we’re elated to extend our Premier League broadcast rights for another three seasons.

“This shows our long-term commitment to provide exclusive premium content and our transition to be a multi-media entertainment provider.

“Fans have shown that they love what we are doing in bringing the best club competition in the world to Australia and we look forward to taking it to the next level over the next four years.”

Richard Scudamore, executive chairman of the EPL, said: “We are very pleased that Optus has again chosen to invest in our rights in Australia and will exclusively broadcast the Premier League for the next four seasons.

“Optus is an excellent partner for the League and we look forward to continuing to work with them to make available the best possible Premier League content to fans across the country.”

Optus has also announced a new direct-to-consumer subscription option for all Australian viewers to access Optus Sport, which will be the only place to watch all 64 matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

From later this month, Optus Sport will be available for the first time to non-Optus customers and Optus customers who were previously not eligible, for $14.99 per month via Google Play and the Apple App Store.
