Just got a text that the AFL or NRL Live passes are now included on Telstra Pre-Paid Freedom Plus plans also, so long as you keep your recharge balance above $30. Free NRL or AFL Season Pass from Telstra deal for more information.
From the T's & C's:
"One 2016 Footy Pass per customer (NRL or AFL)."
"Pre-Paid customers must redeem offer by 22 August 2016. Pass expires 31 January 2017 or 60 days from your last pre-paid recharge of at least $30, whichever is earlier."
"If you’re an existing subscriber, and you are eligible for our 2016 Footy Pass, ongoing subscription payments for your NRL Digital Pass, AFL Live Pass OR Club Digital Memberships will automatically stop when you activate the 2016 Footy Pass, unless you subscribed through an app store. If you purchased your AFL or NRL subscription through an app store, cancel with the iOS App store or Google Play Store"
"Standard data charges apply when downloading or using the NRL or AFL app. Video data usage is currently unmetered only for eligible Telstra customers using a compatible device in Australia."
And maybe of interest to some people:
"If you are a Telstra customer, and have recently taken up a subscription to an annual AFL Live Pass, NRL Digital Pass or Club Digital Membership you may be entitled to a refund."
To obtain the pass, dial #820# from your Telstra Mobile and follow the prompts.
!!EDIT!! As per mch87's post, this may also work on Boost.
