Telstra Adds Free Foxtel Now To Mobile Plans
Telstra has refreshed its mobile phone plans ahead of the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, offering more data as well as free access to Foxtel Now on higher-end post-paid plans
Customers signing up for a new phone on a $99, $129, $149 or $199 a month plan for 24-months will receive up to three ‘starter packs’ on Foxtel’s streaming service. 12-month SIM-only plans will also receive Foxtel Now access on telco’s $79 and $99 a month offerings.
“Through our partnership with Foxtel Now, we’re putting the world’s best entertainment in our customers’ hands and delivering an amazing streaming experience, on Australia’s best mobile network,” said Michael Simpson, executive director of Telstra mobile products.
Foxtel Now streaming will still count towards data limits, but Telstra has increased the standard data included in all post-paid plans. Telstra’s ‘pick’ – its $99 a month plan – offers 12GB of data, up from 8GB previously, and an additional 8GB bonus data is also currently on offer
Prices have also shifted slightly, with plans at the $99 price point and below increasing by $4 a month, while the XL $129 a month plan is $6 cheaper.
The Galaxy Note 8 will be available from $109 a month from Telstra, with a free Galaxy Tab A available to customers who pre-order September 22.
Telstra have also introduced a new feature for prepaid customers called Data Bank, which allows up to 50GB of unused data to be saved when an account remains active with $30+ recharges.
More information about all of the new Telstra plans can be found on the telco’s website.
