Planhacker: Optus' New Broadband Plans With Multiroom Yes TV Streaming

Today, Optus launched a new range of fixed broadband plans for NBN and ADSL customers. The new plans range from $60 to $80 per month and enable users to stream Yes TV by Fetch content on different televisions at the same time. Interested? Here's what you get with each plan.

Optus' revised broadband plans are available to new and recontracting customers. Options include the Optus $60 Plan (which comes with a fixed phone line and unlimited data), the Optus $80 Plan (unlimited data, a fixed phone line, Optus Sports, a Yes TV set-top box and a Yes TV by Fetch Channel Pack) and the Office $80 Plan (unlimited data, a fixed phone line and a $360 Smart Shop voucher to spend on business applications.)

These will set you back a minimum of $1440, $1920 and $1920 over 24 months, respectively. In addition to 24 month contracts, each plan is also available month-to-month. However, all no-contract plans come with a $200 setup fee. Boo-urns.

Customers can tweak the inclusions in their plan by paying an additional monthly fee. For example, you can add unlimited local and national calls, unlimited calls to Australian mobiles or international call packs for between $5 and $10 extra per month.

Households can watch Yes TV content on up to three televisions by attaching multiple Yes TV by Fetch Mini, Mighty or Gen-2 devices to a single account. Mini and Mighty services are available on month-to-month pricing for $10 or $15 respectively.

    Is yestv worth getting? I already have an apple tv with netflix and hulu

    I have Yes TV/Fetch TV currently as part of a bundle, and I would say yes, as long as it is part of a bundle. I don't think I'd pay for it if it was full price, but it's great as a bundled product to have a bit more than just standard Freeview. Lots of Foxtel channels like BBC First, ESPN, MTC, plenty of docos and option to add kids pack channels. I also have Netflix (but not Hulu).

    Where has the other speed boosts gone? Up to 25Mbps may not be enough in my household!
