Giving Australians access to the best men’s and women’s sport in the country is our true passion. We are proud to say that Telstra is allowing sports lovers to enjoy live action on their mobile across the biggest sporting codes in the country – NRL, AFL and with the latest addition announced today, Netball.
As long standing supporters of both grassroots and elite sport, we are excited to be involved in such a pivotal time for women’s sport in this country.
Personally, I was blown away by the energy on the court when I took my family to watch the recent Sydney Swifts versus Central Pulse national league game. It’s such a dynamic, athletic and exciting sport when you are right there in the crowd watching a live game. The enthusiasm from the loyal supporters and the passion and team spirit when they run onto the court is magic. It’s no wonder that Netball is Australia’s leading female sport.
There is no doubt that sports lovers want to stay connected to their favourite sport anywhere, anytime. The growing usage of the AFL and NRL footy apps alone is proof that watching on your mobile is truly entrenched in the way we enjoy sport.
From 2017, four live games will be broadcast on the big screen with Channel Nine airing a Saturday night live double header and two exclusive live matches per week available via Telstra TV. Through the Telstra Netball Live app, sports fans will also be able to view all games live on mobile.
It’s an exciting time for Telstra and the sport as a whole and I look forward to sharing more as we move closer to the 2017 season.
