Telecom giant Optus are eyeing up a bid for Australian broadcast rights to the UEFA Champions League as they aim to expand their football streaming.
The Singapore-owned company have just renewed their ground-breaking EPL deal which saw them snatch the rights from Fox Sports two years ago.
They followed that up by sealing a deal with SBS to stream every game of the World Cup.
Now Optus Sport executive producer Richard Bayliss has revealed they're not done yet...and a bid for the UEFA Champions League could come soon.

"There are some high quality football tournaments and competitons out there that we are looking at," he told the 442FM podcast.
"When you look at the Premier League obviously, and the World Cup – that's the upper echelon of football... and you have to get things to match that."
He admitted the Champions League was in that bracket and added: "I believe that's available at some point soon."
BeinSport currently shares the Australian TV rights for the UCL with Optus's World Cup broadcast partner SBS.
But Bayliss warned: "I think that the bidding for that will start quite soon.
"Whether that's something we can get, I'd love, love that to be the case, to obviously complement what we have already."
He added: "We don't want to be pigeonholed into one league, or one competition.
"We talk about other leagues anyway, so we'll grab that opportunity with both hands if other competitions do come up."
