SBS will simulcast all remaining matches in the group stages of the FIFA World Cup following the technical issues that have plagued Optus’s live streaming coverage. Optus CEO Allen Lew had previously expressed confidence that the problems had been resolved. However, he has announced that Optus will offer free access to its World Cup coverage until the end of August and paid subscribers will receive a full refund. Optus will also consider compensation requests from advertising partners for its World Cup coverage. Meanwhile, Spain has defeated Iran 1-0 in the latest World Cup match.
