Contract long (24 months) Foxtel Now joins the Live Pass offering with live, fast and data free AFL, NRL, AFLW and Netball 2018 games ** as part of the class leading entertainment inclusions that Telstra offers customers.

Telstra is also offering some of its most generous data inclusions to across a range of its handset, SIM only and Telstra Pre-Paid Extra™ plans.

Kevin Teoh, Telstra’s Head of Mobiles said: “With Australians embracing streaming on their mobiles we want to give our customers the best mobile entertainment experience. Our customers already receive access to NRL, AFL, Netball and AFLW live, fast and data-free. Our new post-paid offers build on this by including a Foxtel Now subscription for the entire duration of a plan term. This puts the world’s best entertainment in our customers’ hands.

“And, to allow our customers to stream more of their favourite shows on the go we’ve significantly increased data allowances across selected handset, BYO and leasing plans. Combined it adds up to an unmatched mobile entertainment experience.

“We also know an amazing streaming experience needs an amazing network. We’ve invested billions of dollars to expand mobile capacity and coverage to support Australia’s growing appetite for small screen entertainment. This includes expanding our national coverage to 2.5m sq. km, expanding our Gigabit speed footprint and commencing a rollout of small cells in capital cities, starting in Melbourne, to bring additional mobile capacity and performance to the busiest locations”.

Not only can customers benefit from the 24 month Foxtel Now subscription, Telstra is also offering its most generous data inclusions to date across its Go Mobile Plus and Go Mobile Swap Lease plans with data allowances up to 170GB a month.

The XL, XXL and Premium Go Mobile Plus plans have all received 33% increases in data allowances taking XL from 30GB per month to 40GB, XXL from 60GB to 80GB and Premium from 120GB to 160GB per month.
