AFL Northern Territory (AFLNT) and the NT News have extended their partnership for season 2020/21 with an exclusive offer for TIO NTFL members.
As part of the arrangement, all existing top-tier TIO NTFL members will be able to opt-in to an additional annual subscription to NewsCorp for just $25, which will provide all access to TIO NTFL live stream games but also all the benefits of the News Corp media subscription.
Importantly, AFLNT and the NT News have also announced that TIO NTFL Clubs will be looked after with 5 FREE additional subscriptions per club to ensure that key coaching staff have access to the live stream.
In addition, an interstate membership will also be offered for the first time for those TIO NTFL fans wishing to watch the game live and also take advantage of the News Corp subscription offer.
“We are excited to take this partnership to the next level and believe it is a win-win for the footy ecosystem as we seek to drive a better commercial return for our game,” Stu Totham said.
“We will always want to have people watch our game live; and we are also continuing to look after our fans who can watch it through our channels 24 hours later or on free to air TV after Christmas.
“The standard of footy so far this year in the TIO NTFL Premier League has been second to none and we believe more and more people want to access it.”
NT News General Manager Greg Thomson said he was pleased to provide the additional promotion, both for members and also the free subscriptions for Clubs.
“We understand that there are club officials who wish to watch it live if they are unable to attend in person so these free subscriptions acknowledge this and we’re very pleased to be helping the Clubs out,” Greg said.
“The subscription price being offered to TIO NTFL members is unprecedented and provides enormous value for anyone wishing to get their news digitally.
“We’re also stoked that we can provide the platform to present what is truly an unique sporting icon with the NTFL at a time of year that the country is starved for footy action.”
The announcement coincides with the TIO NTFL Half-Season Membership Promotion which goes on sale today. For more information, go to the membership website here.
