Until now, the only way to watch every match of the Hyundai A-League was to subscribe to Foxtel. For people like us, who don’t really watch Foxtel except for the football, this can be kind of expensive. Telstra’s new My Football Live app changes all of this.
Under the new deal, Telstra’s My Football Live app will offer every match live, as well as select FFA Cup, Westfield W-League, Caltex Socceroos and Westfield Matildas games, including Caltex Socceroos home friendlies and select Asian Cup and 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification games.
In addition to streaming live matches, the app provides the latest in football news, full-match replays, live radio with the ‘listen live’ feature, team and player stats, and text-based match commentary. Sadly, though, there’s no Chromecast support, so you’re left with viewing on your phone or compatible tablet.
The live, fast and data-free streaming of the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season will be available to all eligible Telstra mobile customers. Non-Telstra customers can purchase a $99.99 annual Live Pass, $16.99 monthly Live Pass, or $4.99 weekly Live Pass. As a special introductory offer for non-Telstra customers new to any existing Live Pass, the annual pass can be purchased for $79.99 until 15 January 2019.
Telstra customers do get a few bonuses that non-customers do not, including $20 Telstra Thanks tickets to select A-League matches, as well as a number of Caltex Socceroos and Westfield Matildas home fixtures from as little as $15, so fans can experience the thrill of football live.
