Rumours floating around, sourced from a client who works for Optus.

Treat as a reasonable rumour no higher.

If the vote gets up and we get an independent A-League Optus to broadcast the A-League... how many games I don't know.

Any estimate on what they would pay? I assume it would still be shared with FOX coverage?

From what he told me, it was a kinda swap, EPL games for A-League games, with cash to FFA and a lot more than 10. He is a senior exc but in a technical part of the business so I guess its water cooler talk among senior excs... as I said take it for what it is but my client got it spot on re the EPL.

If it is a straight swap I think it could be a bad thing. What % of the population has Optus? I myself dont have it and I dont plan on getting it just for HAL.

Unless the money is doubled for Optus, but games need to be shown on FTA

If they're able to pick up the entirety of the A-League then great.

Would take Optus over FOX every day of the week.

I subscribed to FOX for the new A League season and am already pissed at how archaic their service is compared to Optus.

Going to get rid of it soon
