Stuart Bird shares what his family will be streaming this Easter Long Weekend thanks to the our Best Bundle ever offer.

For me, the Easter long weekend is all about spending quality time with my family including competitive egg hunts with my three and six year olds, and resting and recharging with a chocolate egg (or three).

So just in time for Easter we’ve bought back Telstra’s Best Bundle Ever.

It includes a Telstra TV to stream Stan, Netflix, Foxtel Play, the latest movies on BigPond Movies, sport, and catch-up TV. With 1000GB of data to use each month, it will meet the needs of the entire family.

I’m constantly amazed at how good my kids are at searching and finding interesting things online, but it can also be quite scary as a parent. I’m proud that the Best Bundle includes parental controls through Telstra Broadband Protect, giving my family and other families across the country comfort that their kids will stay safe online.

So with the Easter break just weeks away, here are my top picks on Telstra TV for the long weekend…

Top BigPond movie pick for kids


Moana is a 3D computer-animated musical fantasy comedy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. The film tells the story of Moana, the strong-willed daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of saving her people.

Top TV picks

Designated Survivor – NETFLIX

Starring Kiefer Sutherland, this series follows an explosion which claims the lives of the President and all members of his Cabinet except for U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Tom Kirkman, (Sutherlan) who had been named the designated survivor. Kirkman is immediately sworn in as President, unaware that the attack is just the beginning of what is to come.

One Night Stan – STAN

If you’re in the mood to laugh a lot over the weekend, then One Night Stan would be a good pick. Six feature-length stand-up comedy specials with the cream of Australian comedy talent including Wil Anderson, Tom Ballard, Celia Pacquola, Tom Gleeson, Sam Simmons and Judith Lucy.
