South African leading telecom company, Vodacom has confirmed that it will launch a new content service soon which will offer a wide selection of media. The platform will offer many genres and types of content, and will include access to third-party services unlike most streaming services, which do not offer access to third-party services.
Vodacom spokesperson Byron Kennedy in a statement said, “Vodacom will launch a new content service in the coming weeks that will offer a variety of content, a Vodacom video service and access to certain third-party content. The new service will be competitively priced and will be supported through discounted data use options such as the recently launched Vodacom Ticket multimedia bundles.”
Vodacom also launched its Social Ticket products in early May, with promises to users of discounts of up to 50% on data used for social media, video, music, and gaming. These “tickets” are essentially data bundles that will help manage data usage for apps such as VuClip Videos, Netflix, DStv, YouTube, and a lot of other online platforms.
