From 14 May 2019, you’ll be able to purchase Telstra TV as an add-on to your consumer post-paid mobile or mobile broadband service. Telstra TV was previously only available for customers with a Telstra home broadband service. Customers on an eligible plan can purchase Telstra TV outright or on a repayment option.

Good to know:
While Telstra TV is now available to consumer post-paid mobile and mobile broadband customers, we don’t recommend customers use their 4G mobile connection as the primary internet source for their Telstra TV. We recommend that Telstra TV is used over a fixed broadband connection.

Additional FAQ


Is there a different activation process if the Telstra TV is not connected to a Telstra fixed broadband service?

When activating a Telstra TV on a Telstra fixed broadband connection, we can determine who you are based on your connection. If you’re connected to fixed broadband with another Internet Service Provider (ISP), you’ll need to link your Telstra ID during the activation process.


You’ll be shown an 8-digit code on your TV with a URL ( where you’ll need to enter the code and sign in using your Telstra ID to link the device to your account. This allows you to purchase Telstra TV Box Office titles or set up carrier-billed subscription services for the first time such as Netflix, Foxtel Now or Kayo.


Are there any features that Telstra consumer post-paid mobile and mobile broadband customers won’t be able to access on Telstra TV?

From 14 May 2019, we will be unlocking all the features that were previously locked to the Telstra broadband Network. The home screen, search and free-to-air TV tuner will now be able to be enjoyed by all Telstra TV customers regardless of their ISP.


Can I use my Telstra TV while connected to my mobile or mobile broadband service?

While it is possible to connect your Telstra TV to your mobile or mobile broadband service, we do not recommend doing so, as streaming can use a significant amount of data. Telstra TV is an in-home entertainment device that connects to a TV, so the quality required for streaming is much more than is required when streaming on a mobile screen. We recommend taking up a Telstra TV if you have a fixed broadband service at home with a sufficient data allowance for big screen streaming.
