If you've been banished from your old housemate's Netflix account by the company's crackdown on password sharing, here's one way that you might be able to score access to the service for free in Australia.

So long as you're a new customer, you can sign up for any of the Optus NBN Family Entertainer plans below and you'll snag a standard Netflix subscription (valued at $16.99 per month) at no additional cost.

We waste our time, so you don’t waste yours
There’s too much good TV and not enough time. We take the guesswork out with our weekly picks for what to watch.

You can’t watch it all, so we watch it for you.

By signing up, you agree to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

This deal is exclusive to Optus' fastest NBN plans but it should stick around for as long as you stick with your new internet plan. If you're an existing Netflix customer, you can even transfer an existing subscription to Optus to take advantage of the offer and if decide you to spring for 4K, it'll only cost you an extra $6 per month.

You'll also save up to $20 per month on the cost of your NBN connection for the first six months, depending on the plan you opt for.

The best part? All three of the above are also no-contract plans, so you’re free to swap to a new provider if a better deal comes along or if the company ever decides to revoke that standing offer of free Netflix.

In addition to free Netflix in Australia and typical evening download speeds of as much as 600Mbps, you’ll also score an opportunity to save Optus Sport. Rather than the usual rate of $24.99 per month, Optus customers pay just $6.99 per month for the sports streaming service.

The above are far from the only promotions that Optus is running when it comes to streaming services. Those who sign up for any of the provider's NBN and internet plans also get access to a platform called SubHub. This bill-management portal gives Optus customers a scaling discount of up to 10 per cent, depending on the number of subscriptions you bundle together.

Even if you do need to be subscribed to a decent number of services for the discounts to amount to much, they do add up quickly. It doesn’t hurt that Optus is currently running a bunch of other promotions around its subscription bundling platform. For instance, the provider will shout you 6 months of Prime Video for free if you sign up for it via SubHub.

You can set yourself up to save using Optus SubHub once you're signed up for any of the Optus NBN plans featured in the widget below.
