SBS will continue to broadcast all FIFA World Cup games until at least June 29 and the end of the tournament's group stages, after further issues plaguing the embattled Optus Sports network.
Speaking earlier in the week, Lew said he was confident the brand would recover.
However, if the BBC wants an object lesson in depending on broadband for the supply of a mass-market sporting event they should speak to Australia's OPTUS, where the Federation Internationale de Football Association video stream was "battered" by multiple failures and admitting that they were overwhelmed by consumer demand, and in particular last-minute requests for the signals.

But the company decided it needed more time, announcing on Wednesday that SBS would air the remaining 31 group games. "He assures me he is giving the World Cup streaming problems his personal attention and he believes it will be fixed this evening", Mr Turnbull tweeted on Monday.
SBS originally onsold the World Cup broadcast rights to Optus Sport, with Fairfax Media reporting that deal was worth approximately $8 million.
"We are entering a new era of mobile internet and live sport streaming is an emerging technology and I think our partners also understand that and know the risk they take".
"We are in the long term for premium sports content so, we will just think about it as something that is a learning lesson along the way we would pick up what we've learnt, we understand the passion of Australians, we understand what we need to do as a network and we will go up for the next World Cup as aggressively as we did for this one". This would allow streaming of all World Cup games, including the final stages of the tournament, as well as access to the first three rounds of the English Premier League.
Communications Minister Mitch Fifield accused Labor of hypocrisy claiming it had blocked legislation that would have allowed SBS to generate additional advertising revenue.
Optus also suggested that most of the problems were with customers using Apple devices and on broadband networks other than its own.
Customers who had signed up to Optus for this period will get their A$15 (S$15) fee refunded.
