Telstra extends TV service beyond broadband subscribers

Telstra’s TV service is to be made available to wider range of the telco’s customers following a series of changes to the product announced by the provider.

Until now, Telstra TV was only available to broadband subscribers but with the new changes the streaming service will be available to the telco’s mobile internet and post-paid mobile customers.

Telstra currently claims to have 1.4m TV subscribers through its broadband related offerings. With the changes, customers will be able to use the service even if they are using a competing internet provider.

Customers will be able to take-up Telstra TV outright or on a 24-month plan for the service that offers free-to-air, catch up TV, Foxtel Now, Netflix, Stan, Kayo Sports, Telstra TV Box Office, Hayu, Animelab, Garage Entertainment and DocPlay.

In 2017, Telstra launched free-to-air TV and 4K streaming support for the service. In February this year, the telco launched its latest version of Telstra TV as it sought to position the business against rival Optus’ sports driven streaming strategy.
