Optus has teamed up with National Geographic to offer an exclusive app for 18 months.
You can read articles, watch a documentary, or scroll through some of the world’s most breathtaking photography – all without using any data.
"We have a treasure trove of global content that will be topped up with local stories we are bringing to Optus mobile customers as a world first experience. The app enables users to get closer to the work of our explorers, photographers, filmmakers, scientists and conservationists," said Jacqui Feeney, Managing Director of Fox Networks Group ANZ, said.
"We understand freshness and local relevance is key so the product will provide a regularly updated and personalised experience to ensure users watch, look at and read the content they love the most."
New, existing and recontracting Optus My Plan Plus/Flex and My Plan Business/Flex customers on plans $40 and above will get exclusive access to the video, photographic and editorial content on National Geographic's mobile app included in their plan at no extra cost.
The National Geographic mobile app will be regularly updated with fresh content from the brand's global network of storytellers. Growing over time, the app will initially launch with nearly 5,000 long and short form videos, including over 1,400 TV show episodes; two live TV channels: National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild; and over 28,000 photos and galleries by some of National Geographic's leading photographers.
