We’re really thrilled that Microsoft has chosen to partner with us as the exclusive Australian partner for its Xbox All Access gaming package. It’s a great way to get more families gaming together.

From today, Telstra’s fixed and post-paid mobile customers can choose from two different tiers of Xbox All Access: a $27 monthly package that includes an Xbox One S, access to over 100 games on Xbox Game Pass and multiplayer support with Xbox Live Gold. Alternatively, more enthusiastic gamers can opt for the awesome Xbox One X with 4K gaming capabilities, as well as access to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold for just $38 per month, both over 24 months*.

Xbox All Access from Telstra means you can get the latest gaming hardware and the best games on offer on Australia’s favourite network, with no upfront fees. Customers looking to end their service won’t be slugged with termination fees, and can simply pay out the remaining cost of the hardware.

Earlier this year when we launched our new simplified plans, we gave our customers the ability to customise their home or mobile package with technology add-ons and subscriptions available on flexible terms. Xbox All Access is now the latest entertainment option for Telstra customers to add on to their plans.

Our entry into the gaming market also couldn’t come at a better time. The latest research from the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association identifies that two-thirds of Australians now playing games. Find out more about our thoughts on the business of gaming here.

We can’t wait to introduce more Aussie families to the joys of gaming together with Xbox. For more information on Xbox All Access head to www.telstra.com.au/tv-movies-music/xbox-all-access.
