How To Get Free Internet TV for 23 Months

Jump on these deals and you could get Internet TV for up to 23 months for free

Sign-up for free trials, buy a connection bundle or plan, or purchase a console, and you can get Internet TV thrown in for nothing. Here's how you can jump providers to get 23 months of bonus streaming.

Want all the TV shows and movies? You can get a free trial with each of the streaming internet tv providers below:

Step 1 - Get your free trial

This is your bare bones, commitment-free, no-money-required option for streaming your shows and movies for nix. That's right: NIX. Lots of Australian Internet TV (IPTV) providers are giving up to 30 days free access to new users and eligible returning users to their IPTV service. Terms and conditions may apply, and once your free trial is over you might have to remember to cancel your account / subscription so that you won't be billed beyond your trial period.

Step 2 - Buy a connection plan with a bonus Internet TV subscription

Because it's important to have a good Internet connection running behind your streams, many Internet TV providers partner with telecommunications services to provide packaged bundles that include subscriptions to streaming as well as your usual internet / mobile service.

On the positive, they offer more months of streaming than free trials, but on the flipside you will have to jump telecom providers and shell out some $$ for their services. If you're willing to jump ship, here are the providers offering free Internet TV.

Step 3: Upgrade your device

Need some new tech to watch your streams on? Netflix has got you covered. When you purchase a new Xbox One Console + bundle you'll also receive a 3 month Netflix subscription (for a limited time only, select stores only). Microsoft Store, EB Games and JB Hi Fi are just some of the guys offering this deal. With Microsoft Store, the bundles start at $499 (Xbox One Console + 2 Assassin's Creed games + 3 month Netflix subscription). However, if you're not particular about games, you can visit JB Hi Fi and get their Xbox One FIFA 15 Console Bundle for $469 (Xbox One console, FIFA 15 digital download token (limited availability), and the Netflix subscription.)

The bonus is that this subscription doesn't include the one-month free trial with Netflix, so really, you can get four months out of this package!

Done!

There you have it: your guide to getting free / bonus months of Internet TV. To make the most of these freebies and bonuses, just keep jumping / switching providers and plans like this:

Netflix trial (30 days / 1 month)
$0

+

Stan trial (30 days / 1 month)
$0

+

Presto trial (60 days / 2 months)
$0

+

Quickflix trial (30 days / 1 month)
$0

+

Optus Broadband plan (Netflix for 6 months)
~$60 x 24 = $1440

+

T-Box offer (Presto for 3 months)
$144 (one off payment option for a T-Box if required)

+

Telstra Go Mobile / Easy Share Business Plan (Presto for 6 months)
$45 x 24 = $1080

+

XBox One console bundle (Netflix for 3 months)
$469 (inc. console, game & Netflix subscription)

It's important to note that the above option means that you'll have to commit to a 24-month contracts with Optus and Telstra and does not include any costs incurred with signing up to Telstra (only the T-Box box price is included). It's also really just an idea of how much you can get out of the specials on offer.

But if you really want Internet TV for nix, why not ride free trials for five months across all four services?
