We love footy at Telstra and are proud partners of the Australian Football League and naming rights partners of the National Rugby League. We also know that our customers love to stream live sport on their mobile device. This footy season we want our customers to enjoy a better video experience on Australia’s fastest mobile network[1].

This season we want to reward our customers and encourage them to cheer on their favourite footy team at home and on the go. We are offering eligible Telstra consumer mobile customers[2] on a plan a 2016 Footy Pass on the AFL or NRL mobile apps. I am very excited to confirm this offer is also available to Telstra customers on a small business mobile plan.

We’re serious about sport at Telstra and this year, we will give customers more footy content exclusive to users of the AFL Live Pass and NRL Digital Pass.

NRL fans can watch the highlights from our Telstra NRL Season Launch show on the NRL Digital Pass. Join rugby league legends Brad Fittler, Matt King, George Rose and special guests including Andrew Voss and Matt Elliott as they preview the 2016 NRL Telstra Premiership season. The show is available on the NRL Digital Pass.

For AFL fans, we will once again bring you the latest pre-season commentary and analysis on our popular show, AFL First Bounce, which airs between 4 pm and 6 pm AEST on Thursday and Friday’s in the lead up to season launch. Again, you can catch the show live using the AFL Live Pass or watch it later when it suits you.

Both of these shows, plus match replays and other great content will also be available on the AFL and NRL apps now available on Telstra TV so you can enjoy your favourite footy action on the big screen.
