Optus Sport fans who also have an Android TV can rejoice, because Optus has just announced you now have the ability to install the Optus Sport app.
This should help Optus continue to grow audience numbers for their streaming sports service.
The minimum Android version you need to get the Optus Sport app on your TV is Android 7.0 (Nougat or Android N). Only Google Certified devices are compatible with the app.
If these criteria are not met, Optus Sport will not appear when searched or as an option to be installed
Optus advises that video quality for matches streamed on Android TV will be 720i, the same quality and experienced by Xbox and Fire TV users. This can be reduced if your internet bandwidth can’t keep up.
It’s unclear whether owners of Android TV boxes like the NVIDIA Shield and Mi Box can install the Optus Sport app. Please try it and let us know in the comments.
