        Similar quality for me on Fetch.

          Fetch still doesn’t get 50 FPS video.
          SBS HD is 50 FPS.

          @DiSTURBED-oNE:

          True but for me the colours are more vibrant on the Optus stream compared to SBS (both through the Fetch) but that's just personal preference. However, it's likely that I didn't give SBS a fair go - the SBS commentators were the main reason I was avoiding SBS.

          @dazweeja:

          Optus probably just pre-turn the contrast up prior to broadcast.

          Try playing with your contrast, HUE and saturation settings.

          @dazweeja: change your TV to Vivid mode or increase the contrast yourself in picture settings.

          I put a sneaky $10 on South Korea last night and that paid out $100… although this is the first time I have won a sports bet in a very long time.

    Best news of the day for me. Thanks for sharing. I was looking for alternate viewing options from tomorrow but no need now :)

      optus sport is free for 12 months regardless

      •  

        Optus Sport is not free for 12 months. Only until August 31st. Optus Fetch mini was free for a brief moment for 12 months. One is a service, the other is hardware.

          Or because Loew hasn't done this in this World Cup?

      Their player lineup has changed. Podolski, Sweinschteiger, Klose, Lahm…

      Maybe they didn’t pay FIFA this time

        Pfft, like they have ever had to pay to win. Germany underperforned this World Cup, even leading up to the World Cup they weren’t promising. It’s not a big surprise. They will come back strong, as they always do. They have the best track record.

        It’s ironic because if there’s any team that has had to pay to win in a World Cup, I’d put my money on Korea. Remember 2002? The ref in the Italy game has since been arrested for drug smuggling.

      Curse of the champions! France (Winners 1998: First round Exit 2002) Italy (Winners 2006: First Round Exit 2010) Spain (Winners 2010: First Round Exit 2014) and now Germany (Winners 2014: First Round Exit 2018, 4th in their group)

      Take it easy. World Cup, UEFA CL, EPL… etc all liked WWF. Only different is more betting money on this sport. That's it.
