Is it disclosed anywhere how much the rights get bought for each competition? I'd be interested to know how much the 2 domestic cups + Championship level football would cost to air in Australia.
The League Cup + Championship comes all as one as a Football League Package that has access to LC/Championship/L1/L2 matches

I don't believe a bidder can pick and choose what competitions they want to show

I haven't seen a League 2 match broadcasted yet this season on beIN, get probably 3 Championship games a round, and 1 League One match every couple of weeks, I'd imagine most of the Playoff matches will be shown though.

Were Championship matches being shown early last season on BeIN? I remember the early rounds of the league cup were not on TV in Australia.

Optus was full of women's football this morning, I have no desire to watch it. There was no highlights of the Euro qualifiers until late in the morning, Raise your game optus.

I still don't have NBN in my area until 2021. ADSL 2+ has slowed to a crawl. Don't understand why Optus can't do a subscription through Foxtel like Setanta did in the old days.

Any other Optus subscribers getting the following message?

I'm getting this quite regularly in the middle of watching something. Then it takes me back to the beginning of what I was watching. A bit annoying. I contacted them but didn't hear back.

You do know there are multiple channels and everything is on demand?
Mini matches and highlights of Euro qualifiers, Champs league and Premier league games are usually available quite soon after the games. In this case they were delayed several hours but there were heaps of women's games - as though that's where Optus put their resources. Hopefully it was just a one off to promote the rights deal.

Nothing. But it shouldn't be prioritised over the games that we signed up on Optus to watch.
Some people signed up to watch it.

You continue to ignore the fact it's all on demand on the app so what's on a particular channel is irrelevant other than to give you an opportunity to act like a manbaby.

What part of on demand but not available because they prioritised the women's games did you not understand?

Are you seriously so insecure that you think women's football caused them to delay making the on demand content available just to promote the women's game? Are you that pathetic?
What strangely abusive comments you resort to so quickly. Welcome to ignore.
