History[ edit ] In the beginning of Optus TelevisionOptus had used sports rights as a key differentiator between it and rival Foxtel. In Optus Television ceased to be offered to new subscribers and the service was eventually ceased. Nine would share the China leg and retain exclusive rights to the Australian matches. Most were locked into plans with either Foxtel or other telecommunications providers, and were skeptical of how Australia's poor network infrastructure could handle 'live' broadcasts over IPTV. The first three rounds were mired with complaints on social media and in other media outlets.
