The benefit of this is that unlike A-League free to air broadcaster ABC, which has rights to just a solitary game each weekend, every minute of the action will be available to watch. For those who would still prefer to have access to every game on their big screen TV, Foxtel from Telstra offers a number of deals which can be bundled with other Telstra products and will provide you with access to every game of the season live and in HD through Fox Sports.

How to use the Telstra Live App?
To use the My Football Live App, simply head to the App Store or Google Play and download it. From there, you’ll have access to all the latest in Australian soccer news. If you’re a Telstra customer, you’ll be able to immediately access the My Football Live Pass within the app, and start watching the best players in the country strut their stuff. If you aren’t a customer with Telstra, you’ll need to purchase a My Football Live Pass, the details of which are outlined below, before you can access the games.
Eligible Mobile Devices
The My Football Live App is compatible with iOS and Android devices and is not compatible with Windows. It can be downloaded to your eligible mobile or tablet either through the App Store or through Google Play.
How much does Telstra Live App Cost?
The app itself is free to download, but access to the My Football Live Pass, which allows you to stream A-League games live, is dependant on whether or not you’re a Telstra customer. All Telstra customers, provided they are on a plan or have at least $30 recharge credit, are able to access the My Football Live Pass free of charge. Not only that, but Telstra customers who watch games using the Telstra network are able to stream data-free.
A-League fans who aren’t Telstra customers will need to pay to watch the games. This can be purchased as either a weekly subscription, monthly subscription, or annual subscription. The annual pass runs for a full 12 months and costs $99.99, while a monthly pass is just $16.99. In contrast, if you only need access to a single week of football action, a weekly pass is available for just $4.99.
