The recent success of shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Mad Men or The Walking Dead has shown just how much Australians love a good TV miniseries.

If you’ve ever hooked into a miniseries you’ll know all too well that feeling of sheer delight when settling down to watch the latest instalment you’ve waited oh-so-patiently for all week.

Luckily, with a Foxtel from Telstra subscription, you need not wait much longer than our overseas counterparts for fantastic content, fast-tracked following its screening in the US or the UK – in many cases within hours. Likewise, you need not be confined to the living room!

Likewise is that inevitable onset of extreme anticipation and impatience when the credits roll.

For Telstra customers, a Foxtel from Telstra or Foxtel on T-Box subscription opens a world of premium content to keep the entire family entertained, and with the release of Foxtel Go for Foxtel from Telstra customers, the ability to watch it in more places, on-the-go on your eligible smartphone or tablet.

Earlier this year I kicked off my blog account here at Telstra Exchange talking through new ways our customers could enjoy more flexibility with their Foxtel from Telstra packages, including a 10 per cent discount on their monthly Foxtel from Telstra subscription fees when combining their subscription with a T-Bundle Connector Plan on a single bill.1

Today, I’m pleased to announce another great opportunity to bring premium content into your home at an affordable price-point.

From 9 April to 30 June this year, new customers who connect to the Foxtel from Telstra ‘Essentials package’ ($47 per month) PLUS Sports package ($25 per month) for 12 months will receive a $0 iQ set top device and the standard metro installation FREE of charge (minimum cost: $864 over 12 months ($72/month)).

The $75 saving is complemented by the fact you don’t need to pay any upfront charges and will still have the flexibility to change your package up to once a month (after connection).

The news is even better for our customers in Western Australia:

From 9 April to 7 May 2013, new Foxtel from Telstra customers who connect to any new Foxtel from Telstra service in Western Australia (WA) will be eligible to receive:
• Automatic entry into a draw to win FREE 12 months subscription on a Platinum package which is available for customers who connect online, in store (Telstra stores and partners), over the phone and through door-to-door sales.
• PLUS in WA Telstra stores only – a FREE gift with purchase which includes a selection of DVDs and Blu-rays, National Geographic Packs, Disney Packs and Sports gifts (until stock runs out, limit of one gift per Foxtel from Telstra service purchased).

With so many great shows set for debut this year, now is the time to try Foxtel from Telstra for the ultimate viewing experience.

Personally, I can’t wait for the next season of Breaking Bad… how about you?
