It’s the biggest match of the year, and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make the AFL finals experience better than ever for our sport-loving customers, and now we’ve got something we think you’ll really like: we’ve worked with Amazon and the AFL so you can listen to the game live using only your voice.

Together with the AFL and Amazon we’ve developed the new AFL Alexa Skill. During the regular season you can now ask Alexa to find out when your favourite team is playing next and to listen to the game live on your Alexa-enabled device.

You can also play the latest Footy Feed, with video if you’re an Echo Show or Echo spot user. And Alexa now also knows loads of footy facts to help resolve those Grand Final week barbeque, like who won the 1983 Grand Final or how many goals your favourite player has kicked during the very match you’re watching.  

Simply say, ‘Alexa, ask AFL to listen live’, or ‘Alexa, launch AFL’.

The AFL Alexa skill is also joined by our AFL on Google Home experience, with features like live stats, results, a Footy Quiz that will put your knowledge to the test, and heaps more. We’re always working on expanding the range of questions you can ask your voice assistant, no matter which platform you prefer.

And if you’re a Telstra customer, you can watch your favourite matches live, fast and data-free from your smartphone thanks to Live Pass. The Telstra Live Pass subscription unlocks almost $329 in value for eligible customers. Non-Telstra customers though can still get in on the action too, with a number of subscriptions ranging from weekly, monthly, or annual passes starting at just $4.99.

We’re always working on new ways to delight our sports fans, and this one comes just in time for finals!
