From today, we’re making Telstra TV available to more customers. Until now, you had to have a Telstra home broadband connection to take advantage of owning our pint-sized entertainment powerhouse – but not any more.
Today, after delivering more than 1.4 million Telstra TVs to living rooms around the country, we’re sharing the love with eligible mobile customers (on a consumer post-paid mobile or mobile broadband service).
We’ve unlocked all the features that were previously enjoyed only by those on the Telstra broadband network. You can now enjoy the content-led home screen, search and free-to-air TV tuner that Telstra TV offers, no matter what internet service provider (ISP) you use.
Customers will be able to take-up Telstra TV outright or on a 24-month plan, as part of our T22 strategy to offer more great entertainment experiences to more people.Telstra TV brings together the biggest brands in entertainment – you can stream movies, TV shows, live sport, music and more, plus watch free to air TV. All in one place.
Telstra TV has Australia’s first integrated live TV, catch-up, and on-demand search function built in – with Telstra TV Smart Search, you can search simultaneously for specific movies, TV and people. This includes free-to-air, catch up TV, Foxtel Now, Netflix, Stan, Kayo Sports, Telstra TV Box Office, Hayu, Animelab, Garage Entertainment and DocPlay.
Our latest Telstra TV now includes voice control built into a clever Wi-Fi-enabled remote. You can now control, play and search with your voice – just ask to search, play and pause movies and TV shows, plus change channels, apps and much more.
Plus, if you pick up a Telstra TV and activate it before 26 August, you’ll receive $125 Telstra TV Box Office credit – providing up to 20 new release movie rentals on us!
You can own a Telstra TV today for $216 outright (remember, you still get the $125 Telstra TV Box Office credit), or if you like the ease of paying off your device for a low monthly price, you can purchase it for $9/mth over 24 months (min cost $216).
Netflix now available as a Telstra billed add-on
If you’re a new Netflix customer you can add-on the Netflix service to your monthly consumer post-paid plan, consolidating all your services in one place. Our range of add-ons gives you the flexibility to pick and choose entertainment based on what you want to watch, with services like Netflix offering monthly subscriptions, allowing you to change or cancel when you want. Plus, you can still take advantage of Netflix’s free 30-day trial offer and you’ll be eligible to earn Telstra Plus points for your subscription.
