The new partnership gives Telstra TV customers unlimited access to the free iHeartRadio service, featuring live radio stations from across Australia including ARN’s KIIS and Gold Networks, ABC and SBS, Macquarie Media, Kinderling and the Ace Radio network.
In addition, Telstra TV customers can listen to over 2 million podcast episodes or create their own custom music stations featuring their favourite artists and similar music chosen just for them.
Geraint Davies, COO of iHeartRadio Australia, said: “Partnering with Telstra, Australia’s leading telecommunications company, is an exciting and significant milestone for iHeartRadio in Australia. It enables existing iHeartRadio users to continue using the service on a growing number of devices. Equally important, it gives iHeartRadio exposure to Telstra TV’s substantial customer base, enabling new audiences to experience the full iHeartRadio service on their TVs. We can’t wait to bring Telstra TV customers closer to the music and artists they love.”
Rebecca Haagsma from Telstra Media said: “We are constantly looking at new partnerships that will bring the best entertainment available globally to our Telstra TV customers. We know Australians love streaming music in the home, and the introduction of the iHeartRadio service to Telstra TV will make it easy for our customers to fill their lounge rooms with all their favourite digital music and live streaming radio stations from Australia and overseas, plus a huge range of popular podcasts.”
iHeartRadio summer streaming of live events on the app has included performances from some of the biggest music artists in the world – Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, Calvin Harris, Camila Cabello, G-Eazy, Dua Lipa, Khalid and more.
