Telstra advises new stock of the Xbox Series X has arrived in Australia


Telstra has its Xbox All Access service for its customers, delivering 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and an Xbox Series X or S, with no upfront cost, and stock of the Xbox Series X is back in Australia.

New stock of the Xbox Series X has just landed in Australia and is available on the site to add on with Xbox All Access (XAA) plans for Telstra customers.

Telstra also advises it has “limited consoles across a number of Telstra stores”, although the telco recommends you contact your local store to check stock availability first.

The company reminds us that with its Xbox All Access service, players can get everything they need to jump into the next generation of gaming - an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, plus 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate - with no upfront cost.

It is bundled with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, with the Xbox Series X package costing $46 a month (which translates to a minimum cost of $1104 when you stay connected for 24 months plus your plan charges).

Telstra offers a similar package for the Xbox Series S, which the company says “represents great value at $33 per month for 24 months (min cost $792 when you stay connected for 24 months plus your plan charges).”
