Vodacom’s Video Play streaming service is gaining traction in a tough space dominated by MultiChoice with its DStv Now streaming app and Netflix.
“Our platform strategy, designed to stimulate reasons to consume data, is gaining momentum,” Vodacom said on Monday during the release of its full-year results for the year to end-March.
“Take up of the video play service is encouraging with 869 000 active users on the platform.”
The mobile phone operator added that its music platform, My Muze, is steadily gaining customers, and its gaming platform PlayInc. has now been launched.
Video Play is Vodacom’s Video on Demand product that allows you to watch the latest movies, series, kids shows and music videos wherever you are.
You can watch Bollywood and Nollywood movies and series, gospel, news or Health and Fitness documentaries on Video Play.
You can purchase blockbuster movies for a once-off cost, without a subscription.
Video Play also offers daily and weekly subscriptions. The daily subscription starts from R5 a day.
You can pay for movies and series by using your airtime or adding it to your bill, meaning there’s no credit card required. You can add up to 5 devices to your profile. This way, all members of your family can watch what they want on their devices.
