Optus Sport app is now available on Samsung smart TVs
Samsung Australia has added Optus Sport to its smart TV platform’s streaming options so subscribers can now access the service right from the Samsung TV.
They will now find the Optus Sport icon on Samsung Smart TVs from 2016 onwards after a software update.
Users will also need an existing Optus Sports account and premium subscription.
“We don’t just want to be the home of premium football, but also a mainstay on the TV‘s of every Australian,” said Optus’ Head of TV and Content, Corin Dimopoulos.
“How we watch TV is changing by the day, and data continues to show that streaming services dominate our data consumption and viewing habits.”
Optus Sport joins other streaming services already aboard Samsung TVs like Netflix, Stan, Prime, Apple TV and catch up services like ABC iView, SBS On Demand, 7Plus and 9Now.
“Aussies are arguably some of the most passionate sports fans in the world,” says Hass Mahdi, Director of Audio Visual, Samsung Electronics Australia.
“The partnership with Optus Sports allows for our customers to have an easier way to get behind their favourite football players and never miss a goal.
“The way we are utilising our TVs has changed and Samsung is committed to offering more choice and experiences via the Smart TV platform.”
Samsung smart TVs will also offer access to Optus Sport’s new OS Fitness platform which offers fun and effective workouts that are suitable for the entire family.
“If you’re like me and have been spending a bit too much time perched up on the couch, the OS fitness has a heap of great at-home workouts that gets the blood pumping, all without having to leave the living room,” Dimopoulos added.
Optus Sports subscribers have access to premium football content in Australia including exclusively live coverage of every Premier League match, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches.
