    Expecting (hoping) for a yes answer. If you want to watch a game that has already started can you watch from the start? Basically never watch Friday night footy live. Always record it.
    2nd question would be if you are watching a delayed stream as above, can you fast forward through halftime?

    Yes and Yes. This is a big one for me and will probably be the reason why I sign up.

    I'm hoping they get better NFL rights, only showing I think Thursday and Monday games, and red zone at the moment, and only for a limited time. I was watching a game recently, paused it to go out, when I came home to finish, the game had been removed. Very disappointing. Also have to use Safari, it's been buggy on Chrome.

    It's got potential but still a ways to go in some areas.

    This is my biggest concern.

    People hate on Foxtel for the price and their 'essentials +' business model but unless there's a thunderstorm it never lets me down. Was watching some sport (NBL, A-League, T20 vs India) over the weekend on my laptop on Foxtel Go and each time it paused to buffer a few times.

    I wouldn't be too concerned as those World Cup games had 100% traffic through Optus. With footy you're still going to have a very large percentage watching via Foxtel also.

    And I dare say there's a lot more interest nation wide in a World Cup game than H&A AFL game.

    I watch it at different times to most people, usually overnight, and there have been random buffering issues even at 3, 4 and 5am. I've been watching F1 and MotoGP replays and live surfing and had some buffering with all and even had to reload the page a dozen times or so (and then had to find the spot where it cut out because the streams don't start from that point, which is annoying). Quality can also vary at those times of the day. I'm not 100% convinced yet either but time will tell.
    I'd be staggered if that's the case.

    Why would you be staggered? It's the biggest sporting event on the planet.

    "SBS’s television coverage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup reached a total of 9.1 million Australians across 57 live matches."

    9.1 million viewers for matches with the majority of them starting betweenat 2am and 5am. I don't think we'd get any near that if AFL matches were on at that time.

    You aren't getting 9.1 million viewers spread equally across the graveyard shift games though. 3.4 million of those were watching Australia/France in prime-time - about equivalent to the Grand Final audience. The final itself only clocked 880,000, which is more like a H&A game - albeit in the middle of the night - and most regular games were in the 5 figures.

    But more to the point, the Optus audience would've been a fraction of that.

    Who's asking?
    Can two devices be watching the sport at the same time? Reason I ask is that with Netflix we can only have one device streaming

    Delayed like all other streaming services I assume. That continues to be the biggest killer with all this stuff. A delay of 30 seconds or so may seem like nothing but it can be heaps when you’re discussing the game with your mates over a chat, going on Twitter etc. And for people to say just avoid doing that is just absurd. Watching sport is a social experience for a lot of people.

    They’re a bit misleading with all their advertising. Hardy any NBA from what I’ve heard which I assume would be a massive draw card for a lot of Aussies. When I first saw the service it gave you the idea that it’s all the sport you want when in reality it’s basically Foxtel Now - the channels you don’t want.

    Just trying it on Telstra TV. Any idea how to get the split screen to work? Have no troubles with it via phone app

    I'll probably give it a go when the footy starts next year I haven't noticed the app available on my nvidia shield TV thingio yet.. just on that the inbuilt chromecast on the Shield works heaps better for everything I cast than the chromecast dongle on my other TV.

    Agree with some others though Kayo seems about 10 bucks a month overpriced

    Find that incredibly hard to believe.

    I couldn’t name a streaming service out there that has figured out the probldn problem yet.

    I don't think its one that can be solved like TV signal. Internet is simply different when it has to deal with stuff like:

    Encoding/decoding time in routers and switches.
    Queueing time in the routers and switches.
    Decoding time on your local machine.
    Intentionally inserted delay at your device in order to ensure quality-of-service or advertisements.

    Not to mention NBN is shit. There has to be some delay.

    Great concept but not good enough for the sports i want to watch.

    AFL - no live GF or brownlow. I know its on free tv but i dont have an arial connected and only want to stream through the internet.

    NBA - is only selected games but doesnt specify. I only want to watch my team.

    UFC - says selected but doesnt specify. I assume no PPV

    NFL - only live games and selected without specifying. Live games means Monday while im at work

    NHL - not available through their service

    Unfortunately my conclusion is the service is too compromised to provide me with the content i want to watch when i want to watch it.

    Ill be sticking with my individual subscriptions with each sport since they all provide a better service.
