The Seven-Optus partnership delivers four months of video-on-demand streaming data free for eligible Optus Postpaid mobile customers, launching with Seven’s coverage of the Australian Open Tennis, the Olympic Winter Games and the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast across January-April 2018 on 7Tennis, Olympicson7 and 7CommGames apps.
