If you are looking for some serious entertainment this Easter weekend, Cell C and SA’s newest entertainment platform, black have taken the wraps off a promotion that will keep you up to date with the latest movies and TV series.

For the entire Easter weekend, any Cell C subscriber on black, or signing up to the black platform will be able to stream live TV, watch series, rent or buy movies or register to the black FREE Trial without using any data.

“We know that for many South Africans, getting access to content means that they need to use data. As a holiday treat, we are taking that worry away, giving people a chance to experience the content black has on offer without using data,” says Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos.

All Cell C customers, whether contract or prepaid, will benefit from this promotion, which kicks off from midnight on Thursday 29 March and closes at midnight on Monday 2 April.

Existing subscribers on black can simply log-in and enjoy their favourite series, music or TV channels and more without paying a cent for data. New customers can also get access to the promo by signing up for the 7-day free trial, which provides a week’s access to the Flexi Premium package.

“Thanks to Cell C, customers using black can save on data costs, when this promo ends, they can simply purchase 1GB of black data from as little at R30,” says chief executive of black, Surie Ramasary.

Catch up on some of the best series and movies like Get Out and Bad Neighbours 2 or live-stream fashion TV or your favourite European Football Club TV channel.


Purchase and download Pixar’s smash-hit Coco and keep the kids entertained or let your little one watch as many Peppa Pig episodes as they like. All this without touching any of your data.

“The holidays are about having fun and taking some time out. Cell C and black are offering just that this weekend, without the limitations of data,” says Dos Santos.

Browsing the platform has also been zero rated, so customers looking around to see what is available will also not be charged for data if they are on Cell C.

However, clicking through to the betting platform and the ticketing service will be charged according to the customer’s data plan. National data roaming is also not included in this promotion.

black customers that are on other networks will not benefit from the free data promotion.

The promotional offer is only available on mobile and customers will need to have a positive airtime balance to benefit. While there is no fair usage policy in place for this promotion, Cell C reserves the right to institute one if we detect high-levels of abuse.
