Telstra has announced plans to broadcast every ANZ Championship and Australian international netball test on its Next G, 3G and 4G mobile networks.

Fans will be charged a monthly $5.95 subscription to watch the games as part of the SportsFan app scores and sport TV package.

According to Telstra digital media and content director Adam Good, the sport’s popularity “demanded” a live and on-the-go offering.

“Telstra customers now have access to live netball, AFL and NRL matches, with the significant bonus of being able to watch it all free of any data streaming charges,” he said in a statement.

The SportsFan pack includes live mobile coverage of all remaining 18 games of the 2013 ANZ Championship, including finals. However, games played in New Zealand will be streamed on a 60-minute delay.

In addition, fans get access to netball news, live scores and The Clubhouse show which is streamed live via online, mobile, tablet and T-Box IPTV from Monday to Thursday 8pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).
