        Actually he copied and pasted exactly….
        Maybe he did a shit job of copy, edit and paste'

        • +1 vote

          Somehow, I think the sarge was saying Telstra did a pretty shitty copy paste job, considering they copy pasted the thing verbatim from what they had last year.

        •  

          @TheDukeOfNukem: Yes Telstra not alvian. As Maxchange said, yes they did a great job copying/pasting but neglected to edit the text.

    •  

      … nvm

    Worked as described.

    What is the cheapest way to obtain a telstra account?

    • +11 votes

      Get a prepaid SIM and as long as you have $30 credit or more you are eligible.

      •  

        Sorry, I know I could probably Google, but you seem pretty knowledgeable, but do you know if you can get long life $30 credit (like Aldi's)? Or does it expire every 30 days or something?

        EDIT: Found that you can activate a sim so that the credit is long life. Also get all the other Telstra perks. Gonna go down this track.

    Does anyone know if a a prepaid Telstra sim work for activation, then stream via wifi?

    • +3 votes

      Yes as long as you have $30 credit or more. You can create a Telstra/AFL login and it will link the subscription and account together then use wifi to stream.

      •  

        Are you sure? Last year I couldn't stream through wifi although logged in, it would only work via the Telstra 4G connection.

        •  

          Worked for me on wifi last year.

        •  

          @sween64: I couldn't get it either. Had to start on mobile data, then switch to WiFi mid stream.

        • +1 vote

          it worked on my TV last year (Kodi plugins) on OptusNet & on my wifi tablet.

          STrange that it didn't work.

        •  

          @supabrudda: what Kodi plugin allowed you to stream AFL?

        •  

          @solar eclipse:
          Its on the aussieaddons rep.
          But you need a Telstra livestream pass for it to work. .

    Do you have to watch via the app, or can you stream via PC?

    Thanks

    • +2 votes

      For the NRL app at least it is Android/iOS only. And only on a tablet/phone, can't even stream to a Chromecast.

      •  

        Stream the screen first then open the app. That works for me with Chromecast

        • +1 vote

          You can get a plug in for kodi. And then watch on your Android box. Quality is just passable.

    • +3 votes

      Only on iOS and Android. Can't stream it from PC.

    •  

      Last year there was a Kodi app which allowed you to add your Telstra credentials and stream the video on your PC or TV with a MiBox or similar AndroidTV device.

      I don't recall what it was called, perhaps just NRL Live or something, and I don't know where to find or install it, but it's out there… good luck!

        NRL changes digital content providers. This happened mid-season with the change of financial year, not the end of the season. Previously, NRL's digital partner was Livestream which could be played on Kodi after being downloaded from a repo.

        I get every NRL game in HD with the ability to chromecast. This is not through Channel Nein, Fox or a pirate stream. If you google it, you will find it…

        • +1 vote

          Thanks for the info!

          However this was running using the streaming servers to the app discussed in this thread, not using the livestream stream. You had to provide your telstra login credentials in the app for it to access the stream.

        •  

          @mightyboy: oh yeah I tried that. I think I got the info from GitHub. I didn't keep using it though since my existing setup was superior and still used the official stream.

          RugbyPass is the app. so long as it thinks you're OS in an area where they provide coverage, you can watch it via there.

        •  

          @supabrudda: SSSSHHHH. hehe. I use it with Getflix.

      Bluestacks?

    •  

      Remember the playback is limited to a 7 inch screen size. It won't play any bigger than that.

  •  

    Is there a way for non-sport loving Telstra customers to share this with sport loving non-Telstra customers?

    •  

      I would love for you to share it with me, please. I think you can activate it (I'd love the AFL app) and you can just share the code with me. Please?

      •  

        Don’t worry, I bought a $2 sim and recharged $30 and now have AFL app. I also have a new mobile number and $30 credit to use. I was with Vodafone. Maybe it’s time for a change?

    •  

      I got same question..ie: using parents login or will app recognize that the sim you're using is not telstra.

      • +1 vote

        You can create an account on their phone using their Sim. Once it verifies you have a valid subscription it will link them together then you can login on another device using wifi or another carrier and watch it however only Telstra customers will get to watch it data free. I think from memory you need to link your Telstra account. If that's the case then I wouldn't share with a 3rd party because all your personal details will be tied to your Telstra account. Obviously parents would be okay to share with.

    •  

      give them your login and password for the telstra account

    •  

      Yep currently using another family member's telstra account. They just need to share their telstra login account details with you. Then login with their details in the AFL app.

    • +7 votes

      You can hotspot/tether your phone to another, then activate live pass for Telstra on the non-telstra phone - it seems to trick the app

      •  

        So say Person 1 is with Telstra, and 2 has Optus, if P2 hotspots on Telstra and they go to make a login does that prevent P1 making one?

      •  

        Won't the app ask you to turn off your wifi since you hotspot via wifi with most phones to another?

    Thanks Sergeant!

    Note that they only stream on devices up to 7" in size (according to their terms, I haven't tested this)

  •  

    Did this last year, it was good but being limited to a small screen sucked. No longer with Telstra, what would be the best/cheapest way to watch AFL this year on a tv? I'm guessing my only option is Foxtel?

    • +1 vote

      Using the watchafl website for overseas viewers, and a service like unblockUS or getflix to make it appear as though you're overseas.

        Definitely, got it cheaper through a club international membership too.
        I was with Geelong last year, saved like $20 and also cane with a team store voucher.

    •  

      Do you have an iPad/iPad mini/tablet? They are bigger than a phone, that’s what I use. It’s ok. Def not a TV by any means, but better than a phone size!

    Anyone have a workaround for not being able to stream to a TV from a phone/tablet? Any IOS/Android phone emulators for TV/PC that could work?

      Stream the screen first then open the app

        Have you actually tried this? I thought I did but it didn't work.

        •  

          Yep streamed the whole year that way on my Moto g5 to TV

      If you're jail broken on iOS it's possible to Air Play it. PM me.

      Not sure if this works with only samsung phone but it should work for all android phones. I use samsung sidesync app on my phone and windows desktop to screen mirror it to my PC. Then you can hdmi your pc to your tv. The only thing is that cause the resolution is for the phone, enlarging it on a big tv results in watchable quality by nothing amazing. Watching it on my PC monitor is good enough.

    For the xiaomi phone users. Might work for others. If you stream the game. Then swipe down your notification menu. Enter the cast option. Allows you to cast immediately to chromecast. Make sure you have the stream playing first =)

    For kodi. Visit aussieaddons.com.au

      •  

        I've got boost and it worked for me, however I suspect this is because I had free AFL live subscription last year with Telstra on the same number.
        Just download the app, turn off wifi and go through the process of signing up, it might work

    Don't forget, if you had NRL Live Pass last year, you may have gotten a free 2018 NRL Live Pass full season voucher that you can redeem on the NRL Official App. Check your email I got one last year after they made changes to their streaming.

    Also, just wait around for this if you aren't with Telstra, but want the app free for a year:

          Boost is different. It's not really an MVNO. Plus Boost gets data free music streaming - Apple Music.

    Needs to note that this for this feature only consumer mobile plans are unmetered . Telstra business customers are metered.

  •  

    If I port my number to Telstra prepaid and and get $30/month credit to activate this.. can I port away after a month to another carrier and still be able to access content?

    • +1 vote

      Maybe. When I logged in to my Telstra Account to activate my AFL Live Pass it asked which number I wanted it to be associated with it. Probably better off activating a discounted Starter Kit on Long Life.

      Only $15 @ Coles this week.

    •  

      Wait for this trick and you might get it for free

      •  

        Hopefully they offer this again. I did this last time

        •  

          Yeah, it was a bit of fun. Did you get the email with the voucher for 2018 season? I just activated mine. No old games up yet though.

        •  

          @ilikeit: nope. How do you get that?

  •  

    Live passes are for phones only, if you like watching AFL etc on your phone, recommend for people already on the telstra plan only.

    •  

      Um…I login to the AFL app on my iPad and watch it there, have for years now. I use my home internet, of course, but that’s fine. Much bigger screen.
