As part of the deal that sees Telstra take up the position of official Technology Partner of the National Basketball League (NBL) for the 2016/2017 NBL season, Telstra will offer customers access to the NBL Live app to stream games for the season.

The offer only extends to getting you a free Season Pass to the NBL Live mobile App which normally costs $60, but won’t cover data charges associated with watching the games on your mobile. The offer is being extended to all new and existing Telstra mobile customers with a compatible mobile or tablet device.

The NBL Live offer will go live for mobile customers on the 27th of September, with the first game of the 2016/2017 due to kick off in Brisbane on the 6th of October when the Brisbane Bullets take on the 2015-16 Champions, Perth Wildcats.

To redeem the offer, you’ll first need to grab the app from Google Play, then follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you are on the Telstra Mobile Network, not connected to WiFi when redeeming the voucher
  2. Open the NBL app
  3. Click on the Telstra NBL Live Offer banner on the homepage or in the Menu bar
  4. You will be taken to the Telstra ‘My Offers’ page
  5. Click on the NBL tile
  6. You will be taken to the NBL website to create or login into your NBL account
  7. Once you are logged in, you will be shown your voucher code where you need to copy and paste into the voucher section and then click on the redeem button
  8. You will be shown a congratulations page and redirected to the NBL app to start watching live games

The app requires Android 4.1 and up but that shouldn’t be a problem for the majority of Telstra customers – it’s also available to iOS customers as well.

If you’re an NBL fan this is a pretty sweet deal. Head over to Telstra to check out the rest of the details.

    Let me guess. No Chromecast support.

    After reading the reviews on the app, it looks like this is unfortunately the case.

    Yeah I suspected.

    No doubt it’s a good deal from Telstra but the given the Chromecast’s popularity it makes no sense to overlook it. I remember Google trumpeting the fact that adding Chromecast support to apps is supposed to be easy. Either they’re lying or we’re still seeing a lot of lazy, poor app development decisions. I basically consider it a priority for any video related app these days.

    Side loading the apk onto an Android TV device might work like it does with the afl app. Works great on the shield, although the quality of the stream isn’t the best

    Ugh. Good advice, obviously, but people shouldn’t have to do this. The average consumer won’t have the foggiest idea what an apk is.
