Optus launches SubHub, a new centre for all your subscriptions
The more services you bundle, the more you'll save.
Optus has today announced the launch of its subscription service management platform, SubHub. The idea is that, instead of having to cancel or sign up to new subscription services individually, users will be able to manage their subscriptions from one central location. The service is available at no extra cost (aside from the individual service subscriptions, of course) to any Optus customer with an active postpaid mobile, mobile broadband or home internet plan.
"With SubHub, we have turned the table on complexity with a single platform allowing customers to bundle their multiple new and existing subscriptions, enjoy them as they need them and pause them when they don’t, with just a few clicks," Optus TV, Content and Product Development VP, Clive Dickens said.
Currently, Optus SubHub includes Optus Sport and OS Fitness for free, with subscribers able to link their Amazon Prime (including Prime Video, Music and Gaming), Kindle Unlimited, Calm and Inkl subscriptions to the hub. The SubHub website claims Netflix, Paramount Plus, Fetch TV, BritBox, Fiit, iQiy and iwonder are all coming soon.
Looking for something new to stream tonight? These services offer free trials so you won’t pay a cent unless you decide to keep subscribed once your trial’s up.
- Apple TV+ 7-day free trial: Stream Severance, CODA and more award-winning TV shows and movies
- Hayu 7-day free trial: Reality TV lovers can load up on the drama with hayu's dedicated streaming service
- Prime Video 30-day trial: Award-winning originals and shopping perks
- Shudder 7-day trial: Dedicated horror service with blood-curdling originals
- Foxtel Now 10-day trial: Wide range of live and on-demand content, including TV shows, movies and sports events
- Binge 14-day FREE trial: Foxtel's streaming service offering some of HBO's most popular series (14-day free trial will reduce to 7 days starting on the 3rd of October 2023)
To entice users, Optus is offering incremental discounts for each subscription added to SubHub. Since you already get a free Optus Sport subscription, simply adding another subscription (like Amazon Prime) will save you 5% off the total cost of all subscriptions. Add another (or several others), and you'll save 10% on the total of your monthly subscription price.
Optus is also throwing in 12 free months of Amazon Prime, three free months of Kindle Unlimited, three months of Calm, and one month of inkl news if you don't already have a membership with each respective service.
It's an interesting move from Optus, but only time will tell if competing sports streaming services Kayo and Stan Sport and Telstra-affiliated services like Binge and Foxtel Now will jump onboard. Right now, that doesn't seem highly likely. Still, if you're keen to give it a go, you'll need to be an Optus customer. Thinking of switching? Here are their most popular postpaid mobile and NBN plans right now.
