Vodacom’s video-on-demand service, Video Play, announced today that Riaad Moosa’s comedy special, Life Begins, will be its first major local title to be released on the platform.

The side-splittingly funny one-man show will be available for download on the platform from Friday, 26 April 2019.

As an award-winning comedian, actor, writer and presenter, Riaad Moosa is one of South Africa’s most renowned funny men. So, as a leading video-on-demand provider of unsurpassed high-quality content, Video Play is proud to feature the top entertainment value of Moosa’s international-quality comedy series.

“I’m very excited to be a part of this!  The title of my show ‘Life Begins’ is about having the psychological mindset of starting new things in my 40’s.  So being the FIRST local title on Video Play fits in perfectly with that theme.  And I’m sure that there will be many more great titles to come,” said Riaad.

Vodacom’s video-on-demand service, Video Play has had an incredible uptake since its launch in August 2018, with over 2-million subscribers. But with a proliferation of affordable video-on-demand platforms available to the South African market, what is it that gives Video Play the competitive edge? 

Recognising the consumer’s need for flexibility and freedom of choice, Vodacom has ingeniously developed an adaptable subscription model that puts the power in consumers’ hands. Forget being tied down to a monthly subscription. Video Play gives consumers the liberty of choosing a daily, weekend or even monthly package. Blockbuster movies can even be viewed for a once-off cost, without a subscription. Furthermore, these bundles can be purchased according to niche categories and genres, from Bollywood movies to gospel music.

Consumers are able to pay for movies and series by using their airtime or adding it to their bill, eliminating the need for a credit card. Subscribers are even able to purchase video-specific data at a fraction of the price to consume constant content without overspending. With daily subscription starting from R5 a day, instant entertainment has never been more affordable.

Zunaid Mahomed, Group Digital and Fixed Services Officer, says: “Vodacom’s affordable video-on-demand service, Video Play, has enabled the company to provide a seamless and enjoyable customer experience. With the addition of Riaad Moosa’s Life Begins, we’re excited to offer consumers even more quality content and a wider variety of entertainment on demand than ever before. We’re putting quality entertainment, into the hands of anyone with a mobile device and an internet connection.”
