Optus has announced pricing for English Premiere League football streaming, confirming that the service will only be customers using one of its current services.

The telco will bundle the service with any postpaid phone or broadband plan, for free for customers on plans of $85 or more, and with a $15 charge for everyone else.

A new 24/7 EPL channel is in the works, where fans can watch all 380 matches in the EPL season, but a range of commentary and analysis programs.

Data used streaming EPL matches will be unmetered.

It also announced that it would sell a new Fetch TV Mini set-top box to connect the streaming services to TVs without the bulk of the standard Fetch TV PVR unit.

Optus is pitching the pint-sized streamer at its mobile customers who might have their broadband services with someone else. It is also warning that while EPL streaming is data-free from Optus devices, data charges will apply for people who use the streaming box on a competitor’s broadband.

EPL streaming will also be available on the standard Fetch TV box, dedicated mobile apps and through web browsers on PC and Mac.
