    So i was looking for some english football .the champion ship or old second division as was broadcast last season.
    Its seems they have nothing . Sbs has one PL game saturday night.
    So no highlights channel no nothing .

    Umm how much for an a-league channel ?

    Optus bought the rights. Now you need an Optus service to watch EPL. :mad:

    SBS show one game a week as you say. If you have Foxtel you can watch delayed games featuring ManU, Chelsea and Liverpool on their respective channels.

    If you don't want an Optus package but need access to every EPL game you might consider a vpn. Don't have one myself but it looks like a better and better option.

    ETA
    I'm spewin'. I'm eager to watch Mooy at Huddersfield and Ryan at B&HA.
    Maybe this would be a good thread for streams, if there are any????

    Not quite,
    it's only MUTV, LFCTV, & ChelseaTV
    - who have their own respective dedeicated channels (516/517/518 in HD) (283/284/285 in SD) .... which used to be included for free but now cost just a couple dollars extra, not sure of the exact $ figure ??

    Whereas, ArsenalTV & SpursTV do either:
    - an in depth club news show or
    - match replays
    both on FoxSports Channel 505 iirc

    but yeah, you can catch any of these EPL teams games on delayed telecast if you dont have SLOptus.

    Shame one of the local 'content providers' havent picked up the Championship though.:(

    (ahem) Hi, Huddersfield Crystal Palace on the new tax return UHD tele, with new sound bar of course, rigged up to fetch was hands down the best TV football since ... crist.. since Graham Arnold was coaching yellow shirted players.

    HD football > sex
    its too close to call

    In reference to the claim of HD football vs sex. One you can do alone for 90 mins + a drinks break + extra time. The other, well it's always extra time. You have an idea how long it'll last but you just never know when that whistle will blow...

    Out of Vic's gutter & back to your original question TB
    For the Championship, League One and League Two iFollow is an app you can use to stream from outside the UK for a rather hefty price at just under $200Aud.

    However, only 61 of 72 EFL clubs from the 3 divisions have signed up to the new digital platform.
    - Some of the 11 clubs that have opted out of the service - including Aston Villa, Bristol City, Queens Park Rangers and Leeds - in favour of offering live streaming through their own digital providers.

    You basically choose your team through the Google/Apple Playstore, download that teams app, BUT the big major downside is that your 'locked-in' to that team & THAT TEAM ONLY !

    You ONLY get to watch all of your selected teams home/away games, (regardless if they're playing the likes of those on the list that opted out. ie Aston Villa, QPR, Leeds etc).
    - Also, ALL Cup games are NOT included in that, as each 'Cup' has its own respective 'telecast rights deal' separate again.

    The BIG turn-off for many would be the inabillity to watch a multiple of teams, i.e like wanting to watch all of the Aussie players in each of their respective sides :confused:

    If your interested in some more info, here's a page with some FAQ's from punter's and answers about the service.

    Far tooo expensive for mine
    ..... BUT if your a die-hard 'Tractor Boy' or the likes, then maybe it's worth it for you
