AFL live subscription not working

Answered

Hi Somebody,

 

I have just subscribed to the AFL Live Pass through my PC so that I can stream live games on my phone, and watch replays on my PC. I did it through my PC (https://subscription.afl.com.au/subscribe/) this time, as unlike last year I did it through googleplay and somebody from Telstra said that the backend databases weren't linked which meant that I couldn't watch replays on my PC, 50% of the reason I got the subscription.

 

Now, with my new PC subscription, I thought I would test before I get to rd 1 and i have the same issues. However, I go to watch AFL replay and I get the below message:

AFL Live Pass subscription required

• Every AFL match live through the AFL Live App
• Plus full match replays and access to AFL.TV on mobile, tablet and desktop
• If you have just subscribed for the first time, please logout and login again to access premium content

 
What can I do to resolve this? More importantly, what can telstra do to make this process so much more simple? I work for a software development company, and if a client complains, we fix the issue. So why can't Telstra make this simple when so many of their customer base has issues?
 
Regards
Jeff

Fixed. For anyone else experiencing this, clear the cache settings for your browser until Telstra manage to tie the backend databases for both PC and android subscriptions.

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: AFL live subscription not working

My subscription ended so I went to resubscribe but it says I'm subscribed until 2019. Everyone I go to watch a live game it says I'm not subscribed.
It's driving me crazy.
The website is so annoying and difficult. I tried live help twice but they were useless.
I ended up creating a new account with another email.
When i compare to my original email I can see the new one has an option to change payment details bug the old one doesn't.
It appears telastra afl live has a bug that needs fixing.
It was 1 or so hours that I will never get back. Drive me insane. You should look into this issue before people start giving up.

Re: AFL live subscription not working

Let me tell you my issue. I resubscribed to AFL LIve Pass about 3 weeks ago on my PC, expecting it to then work on my mobile of Android Tablet. When I log on to either, all I get is Wewlcome Back, Colin. You are currently logged in etc etc. So I go to the AFL Live Pass and I get the promo page. How do I get to the games? Where do I go from here? <Removed for your privacy>

Re: AFL live subscription not working

You have to -relink' your subscription for 2018. Not sure why you have to, but here is the support article. https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Sports/Link-your-2018-AFL-Live-Pass-Offer/ta-p/694956

 

If you follow these exact steps, you'll be able to watch match replays across all platforms. Make sure you log out of afl.com.au after you've completed every step then log back in. If all else fails, clear browser cache (google this if you don't know how to do it).

 

Text from the support article here:

To do this, please follow the below instructions:

 

- Open the AFL Official app on the same device that you redeemed the 2017 AFL Live Pass Offer with

- Tap 'AFL Live Pass' (top right of screen)

- Tap ‘AFL Live Pass Subscription'

- As long as your 2018 AFL Live Pass Offer is 'active' here, there will be an option to 'Link your Live Pass'

- Complete the relevant sections to 'login' with an existing Telstra ID (email / username) and password or register for a new Telstra ID with a new email address and password.

- Once complete, you can login across all platforms on the Official AFL Live App or AFL.com.au with the linked Telstra ID credentials.

*Match replays via AFL.com.au are only available to customers who purchased via the website or linked their 2018 AFL Live Pass Offer to a Telstra ID & are located within Australia.


They key is to login using the same app or platform/browser you registered your 2017 subscription on. For me, it was the app on my iphone, but you may have subscribed directly via the website.

Cheers, Dan

Re: AFL live subscription not working

Hi @hawkeye68

 

Thank you for your enquiry and my apologies for any issues you're experiencing with AFL Live Pass. 

 

To clarify, did you purchase your subscription via GooglePlay? 

 

If so, this subscription will be unable to be used on afl.com.au. You can only access this subscription on other Android devices which are logged in to the same GoogleID. 

 

Please let us know if you require any further assistance. 

Thank you

Re: AFL live subscription not working

Sorry M8, but I subscribed through my iPhone both last year & this, and my ap is showing active, but I don't have any "Link your live pass" facility.
This is a disgracefully hard to use program...but it's Telstra, so no surprises there.
