From today, Spark customers with an unlimited home broadband plan will be able to purchase SKY’s FAN PASS at a special rate – adding to the top-quality line-up of online entertainment options available to Spark customers.
Eligible Spark customers can buy a 12-month subscription to FAN PASS for only $30.00 a month, which compares to the usual cost of $55.99 per month.1
Spark Acting CEO for Home, Mobile and Business Grant McBeath said “we’ve heard from many customers that they love the entertainment they get from Lightbox and Netflix through their broadband plan, but they also want a bit of sport in their lives. That’s why we’re partnering with SKY to give them a menu of world-class sports viewing at a very reasonable price and over a flexible, digital channel – it’s the perfect solution.”
SKY’s Director of Strategy George MacFarlane says “We have a fantastic line-up of sport at SKY, and our goal is to offer it to all New Zealanders in ways that work for them. We’re pleased to be working with Spark to offer FAN PASS to their unlimited broadband customers, and look forward to sharing our great content with more Kiwi sport fans.
“It’s a great time for Spark customers to take up this offer, with a huge range of sport coming up – including the international rugby season for the All Blacks starting next month, the FIFA World Cup, the Warriors, the ANZ Premiership Netball, State of Origin, Supercars Championship… the list goes on.”
The deal is open to Spark customers who have signed up to an unlimited home broadband plan. In the coming weeks, Spark will be contacting eligible customers with details of the deal and instructions on how to sign up. Once they have registered, customers can simply log in via the FAN PASS site and begin watching sport to their heart’s content. The $30.00 per month cost will be added to their monthly Spark bill.
Unlimited broadband customers who wish to sign up for the FAN PASS deal but have not yet received an email from Spark can visit spark.co.nz/fanpass to register.
FAN PASS gives full online access to SKY Sport channels 1 to 4, including highlights on demand. FAN PASS customers can watch from any tablet or mobile, on Samsung Smart TVs and through
Apple TV. Chromecast can also be used to project coverage from a mobile or tablet onto a bigger screen.
- Customers will be charged an early exit fee of $99 if they cancel the subscription within 6 months. For cancellations after 6 months, no fee is payable.
