Optus' World Cup streaming service crapped the bed again

Optus is copping shit from soccer fans unable to watch the World Cup. Optus’ collection of apps is the only way to watch every game of the World Cup and it seems like they’ve failed to provision enough bandwidth and server capacity to handle all the traffic from the Australians wanting to watch the biggest sporting event in the world. The Optus CEO is very, very sorry and is working very, very hard to fix the problems. For those struggling with Optus’ garbage, try the official FIFA app and enter your Optus details or visit /r/soccerstreams if you don’t mind being a bit dodgy. Just to rub a little more salt in the wound, Americans can watch the World Cup in HDR 4K on their streaming service
