Telstra Teams With Microsoft For Xbox Subscription Service
Telstra and Microsoft have announced that they are bringing the Xbox All Access service to Australia, which gives gamers the opportunity to get an Xbox One console on a monthly payment plan.
Xbox All Access from Telstra allows gamers to get the latest gaming hardware and the best games on offer with no upfront fees.
From today, Telstra’s fixed and post-paid mobile customers can choose from two different tiers of Xbox All Access – firstly, a $27 monthly package (for 24 months) that includes an Xbox One S, access to over 100 games on Xbox Game Pass, and multiplayer support with Xbox Live Gold.
Alternatively, gamers can opt for the Xbox One X with 4K gaming capabilities, as well as access to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold for just $38 per month (also for 24 months).
As a plus, customers looking to end their service won’t be hit with termination fees and can simply pay out the remaining cost of the hardware.
Included in the package:
- Xbox One console;
- Forza Horizon 4 bundle;
- One Xbox Wireless Controller; and
- Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership (includes both Live and Game Pass).
In addition, the official Xbox Access page says that users will be able to upgrade to Project Scarlett, provided they have made at least 12 payments on the original Xbox All Access contract, and that users sign up for a new 24-month deal with the new console.
“Earlier this year, we gave our customers the ability to customise their home or mobile package with technology add-ons and subscriptions available on flexible terms,” said Michael Ackland, Group Executive, Consumer & Small Business, Telstra.
“Xbox All Access is now the latest entertainment option for Telstra customers to add on to their plans.”
“Our entry into the gaming market also couldn’t come at a better time, with the latest research from the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association identifying that two-thirds of Australians are now playing games.”
