Optus has announced a new Ultimate Cable Bundle that gives its customers unlimited cable broadband data, local calls and access to its Optus Fetch TV entertainment package for $90 a month.

The Fetch Entertainment pack features access to over 30 channels, including ESPN, the Disney Channel and a range of movies per month.

The deal also includes an international calling pack, with unlimited calls to landlines in Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

If that laundry list of countries isn’t long enough, unlimited calls can also be made to mobile phones in Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Thailand, and the United States of America.
