    Can a bigpond cable customer do this?

    •  

      You need to have a Telstra mobile service I think.

  •  

    Here we go again…🏈🏉..let the footy season commence.

  •  

    I have a Telstra post-paid phone account, so I signed up from my phone. But once signed up, all you need to do to use the subscription is download the AFL Live app and login with "Your Telstra ID". I used Dad's Bigpond cable ID. So I'll give this to dad to use (Telechoice). I'm guessing the only thing he will miss out on is unmetered data.

      Is it unmetered on mobile?

        Yes.

          I was told it wasn't…Who's keen to try this out?

          @sween64: Would that be the same for NRL then? Sorry I should've read the original reply first hehe

        •  

          @hebe:
          tested on a prepaid sim that has no credit or data and played all the videos and live streaming fine.

      •  

        Ok from here - its only some Telstra plans
        https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/NRL-2016/General-FAQs...

          but what if I'm on Telstra with a BYO phone?

        •  

          @ynot1985:
          I don't think they can really tell (well they can but not easily at a billing level). It means a device with a Telstra sim.

        • +1 vote

          Really? Have you tested it out? If not then I suggest you refrain from giving out incorrect information and stop trolling.

          Tested both AFL and NFL on a $0 credit 0 Data spare prepaid sim with last years 365 subscription offer and works fine.

          https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Mobile-Broadband-3G-4...

          Telstra Rep from there confirmed it's unmetered.

          @jv:
          I think the defining feature is whether the data is Mobile Data or Mobile Broadband
          ie if your data is on a "phone" SIM, then it's Mobile Data and is unmetered
          If it's on a Data only SIM, then it's Mobile Broadband and it is metered as per jv's "terms and Conditions" above.
          iPad SIM is probably a Data only SIM…

      •  

        Yes. All Telstra mobile services are unmettered on Telstra websites with the "Green Dot" logo.

  •  

    Just signed up to this, got the link & signed in with my Telstra Account

    "Payment Type - Prepaid Online"

    I am Post-Paid but i am unsure why it says that.

    give it a test as it says my plan is "prepaid" when i am not.

    •  

      You need a "Post-paid" phone service but the yearly subscription is a "pre-paid" one year subscription. So what that means is the AFL subscription is already prepaid until 2017.

    •  

      That is referring to the subscription type.

    When you dial the number - are you just given a subscription code to enter that can be applied against any login? Or do you have to login to the AFL site with the precise Telstra login?

    I have enough family members with Telstra who wouldn't use this.

      Hey there. You're sent an SMS with a link to register, so should be able to.

    Damn. I moved my family over to pre-paid.

    Sorry, this offer is not available to Pre-Paid customers.

    Was the SMS I received when I tried anyway.

    Luckily I've still got a subscription for 2016 thanks to last year's deal.

    I got this last year but since I already had one via the fantasy footy I waited until December to activate the one from telstra and I'll do the same with this, wait till December to use it for a free pass in 2017.

    •  

      God damn, forgot to use my second pass in December so it expired in the new year :(

      •  

        Ditto, tried to activate it last week.

          @scubacoles:

          I don't even recall there being an expiry.

          It said 'expires 31-Dec-2015'

        •  

          @jv:
          My apologies, I used the Fantasy code last year, I thought this was in reference to the Tesltra code that was released in the middle of the year.

    •  

      Pass expires 31 January 2017.

  •  

    If someone who has this and could care less, do you mind doing it and PM me the code?

    •  

      It uses Telstra account to verify so account username / pass.

      •  

        I have that, just not mobile account.

        • +5 votes

          You dont get a code. You use your own personal Telstra user / pass to login to the AFL app. I doubt many people will want to pass their Telstra credentials to someone they dont know.

        •  

          @GaelicAU:

          I don't have the compatible Telstra mobile to type it into. But I do have a Telstra internet account with my own login details I can use.

        •  

          @2jzzzz:
          so that means you cant get it unless you pay.

      couldn't care less*

    i am assuming the last deal i did this free pass with Telstra was around August which is due to expire in Aug 2016 - so this will overide that and now expire on jan 2017?

    Umm… I may have tried with my Telechoice number and it appears to have worked. YMMV.

      Yep, worked for me.

        It does if you have bigpond but no Telstra post paid

    Thanks so much

    Keeps timing out for me. The page loads then it asks me to log in and when I log in it just loads indefinitely. Tried on my phone and on PC (different internet connections) and both time out.

        That's right

  •  

    FYI - If you don't qualify for it as a freebie and want a discount on this, try going through your footy club and seeing if they offer a discounted rate. I think I got $30 off, and like the idea that my club gets a cut of what I paid.

    so how does the unmetered data work again?

    • +1 vote

      Last year I used an out-of-credit Telstra prepaid SIM and could stream AFL games. Good times.

    •  

      You can browse Telstra websites which have the "Green Dot" logo and will not incur any data charges.

  •  

    can i sign up with a $10 sim for this?

  •  

    If someone doesn't want this and willing to give it away, please PM me. I am an AFL fan but unfortunately not a Telstra customer.

  •  

    I did this last year, but the nrl one only worked on my phone, it didn't work on my computer. Did anyone have any luck?

    •  

      AFAIK this is due to licencing, ie it only works over the Telstra mobile network. I may work with your PC tethered to your phone?

      •  

        You're right, it's a licensing thing, though it's not to do with your connection type, it's to do with your device.

      •  

        No, it worked on my phone via the app. I streamed this at home so it's going thru the same network. But when I log in on the PC, it gets to the games but when I try to play it, it doesn't stream. Watching it on the phone is no fun.
