In a statement, the telco said these plans would also include a data SIM with 3GB or 10GB of data per month which can be shared with other Optus services on the same account.
Optus head of Product Shawn Van Graan said, “Optus is excited to provide more options for Australians to stay connected when they are on the go with an Apple Watch on our premium 4G network.
“Customers can purchase an Apple Watch on one of two mobile broadband 24-month plans which include data and access to exclusive content including Optus Sport, National Geographic and music streaming on Spotify, Google Play and iHeart Radio for $0 p/m. They also have the option to purchase the device outright.
The Optus Apple Watch (data SIM) plans include:
- Optus Sport subscription which can be added as an optional extra at no extra charge: customers can watch year-round Premier League action, plus the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa Cup and UEFA Nations League live;
- Access to the National Geographic App included at no extra cost until June 2020: customers can watch hundreds of hours of science and nature documentaries and movies;
- Music streaming via Google Play, iHeartRadio and Spotify (some subscriptions required) without using the plan’s data can be added as an optional extra;
- The option to stream Netflix, Stan and ABC iView without using the plan’s data for an additional $5 per month (some subscriptions required);
- Data Pool enabling customers to share data between eligible plans on the same account; and
- No plan cancellation fees. Customers simply need to pay out the full remaining cost of their device, which will include any monthly device credit that Optus was going to cover, as well as all charges incurred up until the date of cancellation.
