Optus Unveil Game-Changing Streaming Plans
Optus are changing the streaming game for post-paid mobile users with the telecomm now offering access to streaming access to VOD like Netflix and music services like Spotify and Google Play for an additional $10 a month.
New and existing Optus customers on selected consumer and SMB My Plan Plus and My Mobile Broadband Plus plans will now be able to stream Netflix and Presto content in standard definition without chewing up their monthly data allowance.
This extends to music streaming services Spotify, Google Music, Pandora and iHeart Radio.
Selected plans will have data-free video and music streaming bundled in at no extra cost.
The only thing not covered here is data consumed by advertising on various services.
Tim Cowan, Head of Mobile Marketing at Optus, says “Our customers tell us they want the freedom to watch the latest TV show or listen to their favourite band, on the go. But we know that fear of using too much data is the biggest obstacle to making mobile streaming part of their daily entertainment habits.”
According to him, “Netflix and Presto are just the start of our Mobile TV platform. We look forward to adding even more of the video content that our customers know and love over the coming months.”
“With Optus’ data-free Mobile TV streaming, customers can now stream to their heart’s content without the worry of what it means for their next bill.”
He says the telecom are “working closely with a range of Australian and global content providers to ensure we can give customers choice when it comes to data-free streaming.”
