Optus Sport & 2018 World Cup
If you’re Australian, you’ve likely been experiencing some difficulties in the opening for few days of the 2018 World Cup.
Optus Sport won the broadcasting rights to air the 2018 World Cup in Australia. But their coverage has so far been appalling.
Optus Sport have been suffering from daily streaming issues during live matches.
The problems have been so bad that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been forced to turn to Twitter to update Australians on how the Optus Sport problems are set to be fixed.
I have spoken with the Optus CEO, Allen Lew. He assures me he is giving the World Cup streaming problems his personal attention and he believes it will be fixed this evening.

Dear @OptusSport, Australia will never forgive you for this. You thieving, money-hungry, incompetent bastards.
