Optus and Netflix Deal Signed
Additionally, Optus is also giving prepaid customers a three month subscription when they purchase any prepaid phone or mobile broadband device and activate the included SIM.
Optus CEO, Allen Lew said, “We know that while many Australians prefer to watch their favourite TV show or the latest movies from the comfort of their home, they also want portable content for their smartphones. With our subscription offer, we’re giving customers all the entertainment they need in the one place, and the freedom to watch what they want, when they want it.”
The Netflix subscription can be controlled in a number of ways. These include un-metered connections to Netflix from 17th April, via FetchTV for Optus customers using a 2nd generation Fetch set top box, protection from excess charges and via automatic data top ups for $10 per extra GB.
The Optus Netflix service takes advantage of the 4G network where available and can be viewed on laptops, smartphones, SIM-enabled devices or a compatible smart TV or fame console.
Customers must sign up for an eligible plan between 24 March and 5 July 2015 and activate their service where they’ receive a unique Netflix subscription code. Customers can then sign up for a three or six month subscription.
