Telstra offers free 12 months of Kayo on its internet plans

Attention sports fans! With the NRL and AFL seasons kicking off in the next couple of months — and not to mention all the other world wide sporting competitions and events on the horizon — Telstra has thrown in a fairly generous offer for new customers.

Rather than paying for your own Kayo subscription, Telstra is offering 12 months of the Basic Kayo tier to new customers who sign up for a home internet plan. If you’ve been looking at a new NBN plan and you love sports, this could offer incentive to sign up for Telstra internet.

12 free months of Kayo for new Telstra internet customers

When new customers sign up to a Telstra Home Internet plan — including its NBN plans and 5G home internet plans — you’ll receive an email within 10 business days to redeem a 12-month subscription to Kayo on its Basic plan tier (which includes full access to Kayo and streaming on up to 2 screens). Customers who are moving their home internet are also eligible to access this offer (you will need to submit a ‘move order’ with Telstra for access).

The Kayo Basic subscription is priced at $35 per month, adding up to a total of $420 value for the full 12 months. Once the 12 months is done, you’ll then be required to pay for the Kayo subscription ongoing, otherwise you can cancel your plan. Telstra doesn’t currently show an end date for this offer, but it may be withdrawn at any time. Terms apply.

In addition to 12 months of Kayo, Telstra is also offering discounts on select NBN plans. If you sign up to the Essential (NBN 50) or Premium (NBN 100) plan, you’ll save $10 off your plan fees for the first six months, while signing up to the Ultimate (NBN 250) plan will save you $20 per month over the first six months. These discount offers expire March 27, 2023, terms apply.

Whether you choose to take advantage of Telstra’s offer or not, there is a lot to love about a Kayo subscription if you’re a big sports fan. The service offers live and on-demand viewing of sports competitions from Australia and overseas, including the NRL, AFL, NBA, NFL, UFC and much, much more.

Kayo has multiple monthly subscriptions to choose from – the One Plan ($25/month) and the Basic Plan ($35/month). Kayo also offer a 7-day free trial for new customers, meaning you can always try before you buy. You’ll just have to remember to cancel your subscription if you’re only after the free trial, as Kayo will commence billing at the end of the week-long trial period.
