If you’re thinking of signing up for Foxtel, Telstra has a deal you should consider.

In an online-only promotion, new subscribers will receive a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 when signing up for a new contract on the Essentials, Movies, Sports HD or Platinum plan through the links on their page.

Unfortunately, little information seems to be available about the specifics of the tablet, so we’re not able to tell the storage capacity, nor whether it’s Wi-Fi or Cellular (3G/4G) but we’d err towards Wi-Fi. (Update: Telstra confirms via Twitter that it’s the 16 GB model with LTE)

Longtime readers will recall that Foxtel Go, Foxtel’s on-demand video app, has been released exclusively for Samsung devices, but you can work around that restriction).

Of course, conditions apply – you’ll need to check the fine print on Telstra’s site to see if you’re eligible. The offer is available until March 9, so you have a bit of time to make up your mind.

Has this offer encouraged you to sign up for Foxtel? Let us know in the comments!

A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking.
