For the past few years, most Telstra mobile customers have enjoyed a very useful perk that’s been a valuable bonus for sport fans – a free annual pass for the AFL Live and NRL Live apps that’s granted unlimited streaming access to all the games in both codes’ seasons. Telstra has run both apps with great success for years.
However, that access has always had its limitations – in particular, the restrictions on screen size available in the apps. They’ve been great for a quick catch-up with your favourite teams’ matches or watching games on the go, but you couldn’t sit down on the couch and enjoy a game on your big screen TV.
That’s all about to change. For 2021, Telstra’s announced a partnership with Kayo Sports to deliver full high-definition streaming for its customers for the AFL and NRL seasons – and that means access to dozens more premium sports, both Australian and international.
The change means that the Telstra Live Pass, as it’s been known for nearly a decade, is getting a buff to streaming quality thanks to Kayo Sports from the 2021 season onwards. There has been over 3 million Telstra customers who’ve enjoyed free access to the AFL and NRL apps and live streaming of every game up to the finals, but now, streaming access in those apps will be powered by Kayo.
The big news is that every customer who’s used the AFL and/or NRL live passes with their service over past years will now be eligible for a massive discount on Kayo Sports – $20 per month. That takes the price of full access to Kayo (on mobile, TV, computers and anywhere else you want to watch) down to just $5 per month for 12 months. For millions of footy and rugby fans, that means the ability to stream every game, every week, ad-free in full high definition on any device, from mobile phones to lounge room TVs.
Cheapest way to watch sport on Kayo this season
The best 2 offers for Kayo are both on Telstra this season. As a Telstra customer, get $10 off per month your Kayo subscription (so that’s just $15/month). OR, Telstra Live Pass customers can now get Kayo for just $5 per month! Claim this before 31 May.
Telstra customers taking up this offer get access to the entirety of Kayo Sports, too – not just the AFL and NRL, but more than 50 sports streamed live from around the world, and available to watch on demand at home or on the go. With the usual price of Kayo Sports being $25 per month, you’re effectively getting 12 months for the price of a little more than two.
For those with Telstra accounts who haven’t been taking advantage of the Telstra Live Pass offers the past few years, there’s still an ongoing $10 per month discount available on a Kayo Sports subscription, which gives you the same access to a massive, 24/7 list of live and on-demand sports from Australia and around the world, all of it in HD and with Kayo’s innovative bonus features, including split view and live stats.
Overall, this change means that AFL and NRL games won’t be restricted to a tiny mobile screen anymore; thanks to this new partnership between Telstra and Kayo Sports, customers will now be able to watch their teams’ games wherever they want, at a discounted price that’s an early contender for sports bargain of the year.
If you’ve been a big fan of the excellent AFL Live and NRL apps, don’t worry – they’re not going anywhere, and you’ll have full access to them throughout the 2021 season with all the stats, news, video replays and highlights that are such an essential part of the sport. Adding a bargain-priced Kayo Sports to the mix means that this season will be able to live even larger!
