Customers are now registering their services without difficulty, a spokesperson told AAP.But the biggest issue is the quality of the streams provided to users, which will be proven over time.Optus says a cut-out in the transmission during the Bournemouth versus Manchester United match was a one-off that affected all Asia and couldnt have been helped.One of the biggest bugbears for fans, a 50-second live streaming delay, will continue as Optus says its required for digital transmission.The telco has round-the-clock technical and social media teams to help with any further problems. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Kevin-Minter-Jersey/ .
