[2021] Telstra announces $5 Kayo subscription for Live Pass members

Hi,

The 2021 season saw the demise of the Telstra Live Pass which previously allowed Telstra customers to watch all live AFL games on their mobile device.

 

Users could then opt into a generous subsided monthly subscription to Kayo for $5 a month on a 12 month contract IF you redeemed prior to May 31 2021.


My question is - Will this be subsidy be supported in 2022? In other words, for those Telstra/AFL customers who redeemed the $5@month offer to Kayo, will this continue and if not; what will the AFL offer in support?

 

Thank you

Hi @The_Captain 

 

I haven't seen any information regarding it continuing for next year.

 

I hope it does. But I must remember to suspend the service before it goes to its full price before next year.

The subsidised price offer reverts to a full subscription at the end of the 12 months, so it doesn't seem very likely that there will be a $5 offer for next season.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

I have the same feeling @Jupiter 

 

The older system caused a number of technical issues which continued to throw questions to support, and so has this newer offer. So best way to avoid all the extra support is doing away with the offer.

 

And the old system went for something like 9 years.

 

Saying that though, Telstra has committed themselves to the AFL until 2024 (Which likely will continue beyond that considering how popular the sport is in Australia) that anything could be on offer.

 

Telstra has always kept their cards close to their chests on everything... damn you Telstra lol.
