Are You Ready For The AFL?

Telstra is teaming up with the AFL to bring Telstra customers the ultimate streaming experience


Melbourne, VIC: Every year, millions of sports fans file into the Melbourne Cricket Grounds to get washed away in the excitement of a live cricket match. This is great news, if you’re looking to catch the action in real time. The news is not so great if you’re vying with tens of thousands of other cricket fanatics for a mobile signal.


Telstra is teaming up with MCG to combat this very problem, this cricket season, teaming up with the iconic arena to update the 3G and 4G networks, to become the most wirelessly connected sporting venue in the Southern Hemisphere.


Telstra is installing a staggering 430 antennas, strategically placed around the stadium, connected via 33 km of high-speed antenna cabling. The antennas are routed to 132 transmission models, to offer the largest collection of spectral carrier signals south of the equator.


This is just one way Telstra is enhancing the live streaming situation this season. Telstra customers will also be able to access the LTE-Broadcast, which will offer HD, multi-camera feeds of every cricket game this season. Telstra customers will also receive, gratis, access to the new AFL Live Pass and NRL Digital Pass.

The AFL Pass Includes:

  • Every AFL match streamed live
  • On-demand full match replays from 2010 onwards
  • Special event coverage of key events such as the Brownlow, All Australian, Draft, Under 18 Championships and other exclusive content
  • Access with up to 5 supported mobile and tablet devices

The NRL Digital Pass Includes:

  • Live matches from the NRL Telstra Premiership, Auckland Nine's, State of Origin, and Kangaroo Tests
  • In-match scoring highlights
  • Live press conference and other exclusive content
  • On-demand full match replays from 2010 onwards
