As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver better broadband to Australians, we’re excited to announce our partnership with Netflix, and the launch of Vodafone TV™, our first ever media streaming device.

The way that Australians use their internet is constantly evolving, and streaming services have absolutely taken off in the last couple of years. In fact, according to recent Netflix research1, on average Netflix users watched more than two hours per day of drama series and mystery thrillers like Riverdale and The OA.

That’s why we’re passionate about providing an internet service that can keep up with the demand of modern Australians.

Our partnership with Netflix

From today, Vodafone will offer customers a 12-month standard Netflix subscription on selected 24-month nbn™ plans, on us. This is available to both existing and new Netflix customers. But grab it fast, because the offer2 ends 30.06.18, and you must redeem your subscription by 31.08.18.

What is Vodafone TV™?

We are also making it easy for customers to access and enjoy their favourite content with the launch of our own streaming device: Vodafone TV™. The Android TV powered device puts people within easy reach of popular content and services such as Netflix, YouTube and Google Play Movies, and can be added to their post-paid account for just $5 per month over 24-months3 or $120 outright or online. Total min cost $120. (Accessory payment plan not available online. Available on 12 month, 24 month and 36 month accessory payment plans). Content subscription and data charges may apply. Broadband connection required and Fair Use Policy applies.

The device is 4K Ultra HD capable and can access Netflix and YouTube with a single click of the dedicated buttons on the remote control, as well as featuring Google VoiceSearchTM.

Our revamped Vodafone nbnTM plans

Following the successful launch of Vodafone nbn™ in December last year, we’re now close to doubling our nbn™ footprint and expanding to 444 retail stores across the country.

From today, here’s a snapshot of our new plans:

  • – Vodafone Basic (nbn™ 12 tier): $59. Over 24 months. Total min cost $1416.
  • – Vodafone Essential Plus (nbn™ 50 tier):  $79 including 12 month Netflix subscription on a 24 month plan. Total min cost $1896.
  • – Vodafone Premium (nbn™ 100 tier): $99 including 12 month Netflix subscription on a 24 month plan. Total min cost $2376.

Our nbn™ 50 plan is in hot demand because people recognise that their broadband service needs to support the introduction of more and more connected devices in the household. The 12-month Netflix subscription on selected 24 month plans can be applied to new and existing Netflix accounts so our plans deliver terrific value.

By almost doubling our Vodafone nbn™ footprint, more people around the country will be able to experience the Vodafone nbn™ difference.

Last year we changed the game with the introduction of Vodafone Instant Connect4, giving people peace of mind that they’ll stay online while their nbn™ is being connected. Instant ConnectTM allows customers to connect to the internet right away, via our mobile network. (Subject to mobile coverage availability – see vodafone.com.au/coverage.  Speeds limited to a max of 12Mbps (down) and 1Mbps (up)).

Our great partnership with Netflix, coupled with the Vodafone TV™ device which provides easy access to the Google Play Store, is an exciting new offering for our customers.

Vodafone TV™ will be available in April for just $5 per month over 24 months, or can be purchased outright for $120 in-store or online.
