Telecom teams up with Xbox 360 in new broadband offer

Telecom has teamed up with Xbox 360 to provide a special offer for gamers.

Until the end of February 2012, customers new to Telecom broadband will be eligible for either a 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription card, or a new wireless modem for no additional charge, when they sign up to a 12-month contract on Telecom’s Total Home Broadband plan.

With an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription card, customers will receive online multi-player gaming, and early access to content such as free game demos.*

Customers can also connect with friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter, and get regular access to thousands of high-definition movies.**

Steven Blackburn, Xbox Marketing Manager for Microsoft NZ said, “With a growing catalogue of online entertainment options and one of the best multiplayer experiences available, customers can be confident they are making the most out of their home broadband.”

Jason Paris, Telecom’s Chief Marketing Officer said, “We’re really excited to be working with Xbox on a great offer that not only recognises the growing importance of online entertainment, but utilises one of Telecom’s great value broadband plans.”

As part of the 12-month contract with Total Home Broadband, Telecom will also waive the standard broadband connection fee and access connection fee for any new customer that doesn’t currently have a Telecom home phone.

To find out more about this limited offer, call Telecom on 0800 564 601 between 7am and 9pm and ask for the Xbox LIVE Gold offer.



*ISP charges will apply (see terms and conditions at www.telecom.co.nz/xboxlive
**Only adult accounts (18+) can download or stream content over Xbox LIVE.

This is actively advertised on the homepage of the new Xbox Dashboard. Was a bit of a surprise to see NZ based adverts after getting so used to US ones. Well done to Telecom for opening the door
