Optus adds entertainment for broadband customers who bundle with mobiles
FetchTV channels at a discount price if you're an Optus Mobile customer.
Optus has made no secret of its intent to shift heavily into the entertainment space, including its aggressive bid for the English Premier League rights, inclusion of Cricket streaming on Optus Sports or the move to offer Netflix, Stan and iView content quota-free on selected mobile plans.
Optus’ latest pitch at the entertainment market is to offer the Fetch TV PVR including the additional entertainment pack for customers on the $90 entertainment pack offering if they’re already Optus Mobile customers as well. The Entertainment pack by itself as a straight broadband inclusion is an effective $20 premium, given it’s available with a straight broadband package for $110 per month.
That deal includes unlimited broadband data, calls to standard Australian fixed lines and mobiles and access to Optus Sport including EPL coverage, as well as a Fetch TV PVR.
Alongside the inclusion of additional FetchTV channels, Optus has also announced that Optus Mobile customers who qualify for its data free streaming can also access content via the dedicated ABC ME app.
If you’re an Optus Mobile customer whose spend doesn’t qualify you for the free streaming, you can optionally pay $10 per month for access to it, which could be a fair deal if you’re constantly going over quota by using streaming services.
