If you’re a Telstra broadband customer, you can access BigPond Movies, Sky News, Sports, Apple Music and Foxtel from Telstra On Demand without using any of your home broadband data allowance.
When you’re connected through your Telstra broadband connection, most of the content on these sites is unmetered:
However, some content linked to from those sites, such as videos hosted on third party sites, maps or social media content and sites, are metered, and will count towards your monthly data allowance.
What’s an unmetered site?
It’s a Telstra website or an affiliated website that lets you watch or listen to content without using your monthly Telstra home broadband data allowance. This banner will display at the top of our unmetered websites:
Will this be metered if I’m not with Telstra?
If you’re not a Telstra broadband customer, or are accessing the content on a service which is not a Telstra ADSL, Cable, Velocity or nbn™ Broadband service it is likely that accessing that content will count towards your data allowance. However, you will need to check with your broadband provider, who will confirm for you what content they make available to their customers on an unmetered basis.
What about if I’m overseas?
If you're accessing the internet via International Roaming or Telstra Air® Hotspots, the sites are no longer unmetered and accessing those sites will count towards your roaming data allowance, or will incur data usage charges if you do not have a roaming data allowance.
Is all data usage unmetered on these sites?
No - some content on those sites or linked to from those sites, like ads, YouTube videos, Google Maps and social media services may actually be metered if they are hosted on other, metered websites.
Good to know:
- We may change webpages from unmetered to metered from time to time, at our discretion.
- You should always make sure you see the banner pictured above before you watch or download.
