Telstra combines footy passes for grand final season

Alex Kidman 30 August 2016


Sign up to an eligible Telstra mobile plan and you can watch both the NRL and AFL grand finals for absolutely no charge at all.

Telstra has long held the online rights to both the AFL and NRL, offering fans of either sporting code the ability to watch games live on mobiles or tablet devices as part of selected contract offerings at no additional cost. If you’re a footy fan it’s a very decent deal, because as standalone products both the AFL Live Pass and the NRL passes are worth $89.99 per year each.

The one catch is that if you’re a fan of both codes, you had to pick which code you wanted to follow on your Telstra service. Telstra’s recently changed that offer, making both codes available to any new customer signing up for eligible Telstra Go Mobile, personal tablet or Telstra Pre-Paid Plus plan.

If you’re using your Telstra mobile service to watch AFL or NRL content, it isn’t counted against your data quota at all, so even if you’re busy on 1 October during the AFL Grand Final or 2 October for the NRL Grand Final, you can catch all the action without incurring any additional charges at all.

If you don’t have a qualifying Telstra plan, you could consider one of Telstra's 12 month SIM-only plans, which would all qualify for the dual pass offer.
