It’s a great time for sports fans – there is more sport to watch and there are more ways to access it. At Telstra, it’s all about the big 3 – AFL, NRL and Netball.

On the weekend we celebrated round one of the Suncorp Super Netball and this week we celebrate NRL as hundreds of footy fans descend on the steps of Martin Place in Sydney to officially launch the 2017 NRL Telstra Premiership.

We know our customers love live sport. We want them to stream it fast, stream it live and stream it data free and so this year eligible Telstra mobile customers can access a Live Pass for the big 3 – AFL, NRL and Netball.

Of course, we want all lovers of the Big 3 sports to enjoy their favourite game – sport is for all Australians. This year, you will see a difference in the apps. We’ve listened to fans and worked with global experts to inject world class technology into the products.

Telstra’s vision is to be a World Class Technology company that empowers people to connect.  We believe the updated AFL, NRL and Netball apps give fans a world class sports experience and illustrate how Telstra is creating better ways to help our customers not only connect but also thrive.

I am personally very excited for the season ahead and to cheer on my beloved Manly Sea Eagles from the sideline or on the go with the NRL Official App.

Five new features for the ultimate AFL, NRL and Netball fans:

1. Easy two step sign up. If you are a Telstra mobile customer, you receive a Live Pass to the AFL, NRL and Netball app included in your plan or select recharges. Download the app and with two more taps you are through to the live game and premium content.

 

2. Hide scores feature. Missed the live game and trying to avoid spoilers? The ‘hide scores’ feature removes notifications so won’t receive score updates and you can catch up on the game in peace!

 

3. NRL Bunker decisions. Understand the rationale behind every decision during and after the game with bunker integration in the match centre.

 

4. Brand new AFL club apps. Are you a number one fan? Check out the brand new AFL club apps and access player profiles and stats, team song audio and lyrics plus ticket integration.

 

5. Live Netball on the big screen. The Netball season is in full swing and you can watch two games live each week on Telstra TV plus two games each week on 9GEM.
