The problems Optus has experienced with its live streaming coverage of the soccer World Cup has prompted it to allow SBS to simulcast extra matches. Optus CEO Allen Lew says the telco has resolved the technical issues, although some customers are expected to continue to experience problems for several days. As a result, SBS will broadcast six matches that were to have been exclusive to the Optus Sport streaming video service. The technical problems were caused by a surge in demand for the Optus service. Meanwhile, England has defeated Tunisia 2-1 in the latest World Cup match.
