The NRL season is well and truly underway for 2015 and with the action only set to get hotter, I want to share with you some exciting news that will help you enjoy the game and connect with it on a brand new level.
We are very passionate about our footy at Telstra and we want to make sure fans don’t miss out on the action. The best way to keep across all the action on the field and beyond is definitely through the fantastic Official NRL App and Digital Pass on your compatible smartphone or tablet.
The app has already been downloaded more than 1.5 million times and today I’m very excited to announce it is now available to download on the new Apple Watch.
Only Telstra gives NRL fans access to exclusive premium content on multiple devices and from today, they will be able to follow live scores, kick offs, live stats and scoring timelines right from their wrist!
We have worked closely with our developer, YinzCam, to create a beautiful and seamless app with a focus on giving you the best real time scoring experience, even if you’re not at the game.
I’m very excited to have what I consider the best game in the world embedded in one of the most anticipated and groundbreaking devices in recent memory.
But that’s not all.
If you already subscribe to the NRL Digital Pass, you know that live games, scoring replays, highlights, live press conferences and all our great exclusive content is right at your fingertips. We want to share the love and I’m excited to announce an In-Venue Streaming trial with ANZ Stadium where fans will get full access to the Digital Pass while they’re at the venue at selected games. All you have to do is make sure you have the Official NRL App on your compatible smartphone or tablet, enter some details and you’re in!
You’ll be notified that a game is available as part of the in-venue streaming feature via Push Notifications before selected games, so make sure you’re subscribed to the ‘Breaking News’ category under Settings > Push Settings. Using the Digital Pass and in-venue streaming is data free on Telstra mobile phones. Otherwise, data charges apply.
Fans that can’t get to ANZ Stadium can trial the Digital Pass with a bonus two minute preview* of live matches available on any game day. This is a great way to get a free taste for the excitement of live action on your device and, if you decide to keep watching, you can do a simple in-app purchase and not miss out on the action!
*Note that data charges apply to watch the preview unless you are using a Telstra mobile.
