Tonight the NRL kicks off and the AFL is in the midst of it’s Mickey Mouse pre-season competition. In the spirit of leaving things to the last minute Telstra have decided to offer NRL Digital Passes and AFL Live Passes to all of their customers on a mobile phone or tablet plan.

The AFL Live Pass includes the ability to stream every match live via the mobile AFL app, watch on-demand games from 2010 onwards and access AFL TV. A subscriber can access with up to five supported mobile and tablet devices. The AFL Live Pass is valued at $89.99 but is free to all Telstra mobile subscribers.

The NRL Digital Pass is also available for free to all mobile subscribers and gives the user all live matches from the NRL Telstra Premiership, the Auckland Nine’s, State of Origin and Kangaroo Tests. Games from 2013 onwards can also be accessed via the Digital Pass which can be used across multiple devices (no word on how many). The NRL Digital Pass is also valued at $89.99.

If you are like me and have already subscribed to one of the above from an app store (Apple or Google Play) you can request a refund from Telstra or if you subscribed from Telstra ongoing subscription payments will automatically stop once you activate your 2016 Footy Pass.

For fans of AFL or NRL who are Telstra customers head on over to the Telstra Footy Pass website to redeem the offer. Telstra customers are only entitled to either the AFL Live Pass or the NRL Digital Pass for free.

Just bear in mind, if you’re using Chrome as your browser and you’ve got Chrome Data Saver turned on, you may not be able to sign up without disabling it; Chrome’s data save feature masks your IP address and so Telstra can’t authenticate you properly. Just a note!

Does the mobile data u use to watch on the digtal pass to watch the nrl on your mobile unlimited or do u use your data

Daniel Tyson

It’s unmetred data


what if you are not interested in watch those no neck guys running around after each other? Will Telstra give you a service discount???


Yeah, you need to update the article to let pre-paid customers know they are not eligible,


We’ve already said it’s open to those on plans. Prepaid users aren’t on plans.


Maybe the heading should’ve been “Telstra Offers Plan Customers Free Footy Passes”. The word ‘plan’ at the end of your first paragraph isn’t want I call a standout for such a large article imho.

Awesome, thanks Telstra!

The AFL or NRL Footy Pass is only accessible on a Telstra personal mobile plan.”

Ahhh, I am. (and yes, I am not on wifi, I am on the Telstra 4G network)

Dean Rosolen

If you’re on a business plan, dial #820# and follow the prompts.

Also, prepaid services aren’t eligible.


Can I get a code from a family members phone with a plan then apply it to my prepaid mobile?

Dean Rosolen

There are no codes.
