*The promotional offers in this thread have now ended* 

We’re retiring Telstra Live Pass from the AFL Live and NRL Official Apps, which means you’ll no longer be able to live stream games from the 2021 season onwards. You’ll still have free access to match replays, live scores, highlights and other great features on the apps. 


Telstra will expand its sports streaming offering for customers through a long-term partnership with Kayo Sports, Australia’s premier sports streaming service.


Kayo will deliver sports fans a world-class experience including AFL and NRL games, of every round, live and ad-break free along with the biggest and best range of live and on-demand sport from Australia and around the world, streaming not just on their mobile but on any big or small screen in the house.

Eligible Telstra customers can claim a game-changing deal on Kayo and watch over 50 sports live and on demand. *this promotion has ended*

I am currently a Live Pass subscriber. Do I need to do anything to cancel my subscription?  

Telstra AFL and NRL Live Pass won’t be available for renewal for the 2021 season. You don’t need to do anything to cancel your AFL or NRL Live Pass subscriptions. 2020 Live Passes automatically expired on 31 January 2021.   


To continue using the AFL Live App and the NRL Official App for other features, you’ll need to update the apps in your respective app stores. 


If I am entitled to a refund, how much will I receive?

If you have purchased an annual or monthly AFL and/or NRL Live Pass through your App Store (Apple or Google) and it’s still active on 2 February 2021, you’ll be refunded for the time you have remaining.

For example, if your Live Pass expires on 2 April 2021, you will be refunded for 2 months:

  • $99.99 annual cost / 12 months = $8.33 per month
  • $8.33 x 2 months remaining = $16.67


If I am a Telstra customer who has redeemed a free Live Pass for the 2020 AFL and/or NRL season am I entitled to a refund?

No. You are only entitled to a refund if you have purchased an annual AFL and/or NRL Live Pass through your App Store (Apple or Google) which is active on 2 February 2021.

Eligible Telstra customers who have previously redeemed a free Live Pass can get an exclusive Kayo offer. 


Are there any changes to the My Football Live App or Netball Live Official app? 

No. Live streaming functions are currently still available through the My Football Live App and Netball Live Official app.

WOW!!! This was the very reason I went across to Telstra. Sounds great for the special, first 12 months at $5 a month then reverts to $25 - $300 for a years subscription and I ONLY watch NRL. 

Well seeya Telstra - I’m back off to Optus again 😡

Level 2: Rookie

So, I go to the Telstra NRL Live Pass App - it offers me the $5 month, I go to sign up and, hey presto, there's a problem at Telstra's end. Jesus H Christ.

Enjoyed the live pass for years but I would rather miss seeing my team play than be involved with grubby companies like Telstra and Kayo.

I live in rural Victoria and access the internet via a 4G hotspot. I watch AFL Live on my phone without affecting my data allowance. Does the new Kayo deal mean that my data allowance will be smashed?

Wankers the lot of them

I am an existing Telstra customer, I already have a Kayo account which I signed up for several years back at $20 per month. Am I supposed to cancel that contract and embark on this Telstra $5 offer. As an existing Kayo customer will this $5 per month offer be available to me? How can I find out? If it is allowed how should I complete this change?

Level 13: Super Sleuth

Seems that every time Telstra announces something (they think) is positive, it is in fact a major negative.  But hey, who cares what customers think hey.

So Kayo upgrades it’s bloody monopoly over sports, you are nothing but a pack of thieving bastards, just so you can force people who want to watch AFL live to pay you mongrels to do it. 💩🤬💩🤬💩🤬💩

Level 2: Rookie

I'm pretty sure no-one in Telstra, at least anyone in a position to change this decision, is reading these comments.
But I have to agree, with the sentiments expressed by most contributors so far.

The free live streaming of the AFL is all that kept us with Telstra.

About to start shopping around again.

Bad move Andy, there are no positives in this for your customers, no matter how you spin it.

This is a big slap in the face for Telstra customers. I have to be with Telstra as I live in a remote area and there is no other providers here. I used to pay for live pass to watch the AFL. Now I have to sign up for Kayo. Shame on you Telstra!! I hope the AFL and NRL don’t re new their sponsorship deals with you.
