It is interesting that they are looking to add more competitions and more games.

You just need to look to cricket to see how much you can dilute your product if you oversaturate it. I hate cricket and have no interest in following 20 different competitions every summer.

And then look at the complete opposite in the NFL and how massive you can build something when your sole aim is the quality of the product and not the number of games.

I dunno if NFL is a great example of a 'quality product'...

My point is you do not need to saturate the market with your product to be hugely successful.
BBL being a case in point. It was seeing huge success until CA extended the season. T20 is a novelty factor that people get bored of after a month so it worked well when the final was around Australia Day before school started.

Sign up to Optus on a trial and cancel. They often forget to disable the accounts after you cancel.

Optus show one free match every week for people who aren't signed up, this week it's PSG v Dortmund.

I’m Only back for 6 weeks and don’t watch EPL so it probably wouldn’t be. Kayo seems good from early impressions. Similar to DAZN

So that couch icon literally means I can just watch from kickoff?

Do you know who they take their commentary from? Is it just the stock standard English commentators that the UCL package? Or is it their own?
