Information about these terms and conditions

These Telstra TV terms and conditions must be read together with the terms of your other Telstra services as set out in Our Customer Terms ('OCT') and our Privacy Statement. Please ensure that you read these terms carefully. To the extent of any inconsistency, the terms set out in these terms and conditions prevail.  

What is Telstra TV?

Telstra TV is a high definition streaming video player that enables you to watch video content available via a number of different applications.

Eligibility and installation

To take up and access Telstra TV, you must have:

a. an existing Telstra billing account number;

b. a 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless access point (such as a Home Network Gateway wireless modem) or Ethernet connection at your premises;

c. a device with internet access to activate your Telstra TV; 

d. a compatible television with a HDMI port; and

e. if your Telstra TV includes a tuner to access free-to-air digital TV, access to a working digital TV antenna within a digital TV coverage area in Australia. 

The speed you experience on your broadband service impacts the features of your Telstra TV and better customer experience is more likely on our higher speed plans. Most customers on Telstra Cable, ADSL2+ M and L plans should be able to enjoy the features on offer but features that can be enjoyed will depend on the actual speeds experienced and this is dependent on a number of factors including your location, the distance of the wireless modem from your Telstra TV, network congestion, number of internet connections in the household and other factors. 

For optimal viewing experience on your Telstra TV, we recommend a minimum internet speed of 3.5 mbps.

If your Telstra TV includes a tuner to access free-to-air digital TV, your viewing experience of live free-to-air TV channels will depend on your digital TV coverage. 

Before completing the installation of your Telstra TV, you must ensure that you have read these Telstra TV terms and conditions, the Telstra TV Quick Start Guide and the Important Product Information document provided with your Telstra TV.

You will also need to activate your Telstra TV online so you can access all of the features of your Telstra TV.
