Here are our top picks for the best TV and Internet bundles in Australia:

Best TV, phone and Internet package

The best overall bundle really depends on what kind of content you're looking for. We reckon the best package comes from Telstra where you can build the ultimate entertainment bundle.

Why we like Telstra:

  • Unlimited standard local, national and Australian mobile calls included.
  • Access Telstra TV to watch a wide range of streaming apps (including Foxtel Now), free-to-air TV and catch-up services.
  • 3 months of subscription to BINGE (new customers only).
  • Option to bundle in Kayo for sports content.
  • Option to add gaming into the mix too with an Xbox Series X or S console. A subscription to Xbox Game Pass is included (access 100+ games each month) or get All Access for an additional $33 a month.

Best Fetch bundle

There are lots of NBN providers that offer Fetch TV, but few with a deal as generous as iPrimus with its free 3-month premium channel pack offer.

Why we like iPrimus:

  • Free Fetch Mighty, 3 months Ultimate Channel pack and 30 pre-selected movies. This trial gives you ample time to consider whether the premium pack is for you or if you'd prefer to downgrade.
  • NBN 50 speed is great for a household of 2-3 people, or you can bump it up to NBN 100 for an additional $15 per month.
  • No set-up fee.
  • Free modem for a limited time only.

Best Telstra TV bundle

If you only want an Internet plan and Telstra TV, then a Telstra Entertainment+ plan is the one for you.

What we like about Telstra:

  • Telstra TV gives older TVs smart features (such as access to subscription services like Netflix and catch-up services like ABC iview).
  • NBN plan comes with a Telstra Smart Modem with 4G backup, which is useful during an NBN outage.
  • Includes 3 months of BINGE free for new subscribers.
  • NBN 25 speed is great for 1-2 people, or you can get NBN 50 or faster for an additional cost.
  • Keep in mind: If you already have a smart TV, gaming console, Apple TV or similar device, Telstra TV doesn't offer many new features.

Best Foxtel bundle

Foxtel is the OG TV bundle in Australia, so it makes sense that it has jumped on the NBN bandwagon to give you all your entertainment in one place.

Both Telstra and Foxtel offer Foxtel and Internet bundles. Oddly, Telstra is cheaper on the Foxtel half of the bundle, while Foxtel is cheaper on the NBN half.

If you're wanting to go for the plan that has absolutely everything, that's the Unlimited Foxtel NBN Broadband Platinum Plus Bundle.

Why we like Foxtel:

  • More than 72 channels of movies, sport and entertainment.
  • Multiroom casting.
  • $35 discount for the first 12 months (normally this package is $204 per month).
  • Standard Netflix subscription included.
  • Keep in mind: Foxtel's Internet packages are only available on a 12- or 24-month contract, so you'll need to be willing to stick it out for the long run.

Best streaming discount

Whereas the other top picks we've selected focus on set-top box bundles, Optus wins the crown for offering the best streaming discount. Sign up to any Optus NBN plan and get access to its SubHub feature where you can save up to 10% on your streaming subscriptions.

Why we like Optus:

  • Save via Optus SubHub – you'll get 5% off if you add 2 subscriptions or 10% off with 3 or more subscriptions. Choose from streaming platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime and more lifestyle services like Sweat fitness and Calm meditation.
  • $10 off a month for the first 6 months – pay $89 a month instead of $99.
  • Get the Optus Ultra Wi-Fi modem with 4G backup included when you sign up.
  • Keep in mind: You'll need to stay connected for 36 months to get the modem free of charge. Leave before then and you'll need to pay $7 a month for each month remaining.

      Hi Simone,

      Unmetered Netflix is available on any fixed-line home broadband plan– including the low-tier plans. Unmetered Netflix is not available on their mobile broadband plans.

      Hope that helps,

      Brodie
