The inclusion of Netflix on Telkom’s LIT_Android TV Media Box is only due for later this year, and will also include mobile and broadband service offerings.
South African telecommunications provider Telkom has added Netflix South Africa to its LIT_Home offering – a streaming service that allows users to stream video or music from various service providers, using Telkom’s LIT_Android TV Media Box.
This new partnership follows DStv’s ongoing efforts to get Netflix South Africa to be regulated.
Telkom Content Executive Wanda Mkhize said the company is excited to add Netflix to its list of offerings and that the partnership which is a first of its kind for Telkom, will allow the company to offer more entertainment options to its users.
“As a start, we can respond to customer requests for the inclusion of Netflix on Telkom’s LIT TV Box,” she said.
The inclusion of Netflix on Telkom’s LIT_Android TV Media Box is due later this year, and will include mobile and broadband service offerings.
LIT_ Home allows users to stream music, movies, series and plays games on Apple Music, Google Play Music and Simfy Africa, ShowMax, YouTube and more.
You will need a 10Mbps or higher internet connection to run the streaming service, according to Telkom.
As part of the Netflix partnership, Telkom will also launch enhanced LIT video options and data offerings, which could include free Netflix data for Telkom users as part of its Telkom LIT services.
Functioning like a reward system of sorts, Telkom will reward users who use LIT Video. Users will receive data every month for video streaming from a selection of services without using their main data bundle.
If a user has a FreeMe 5GB and higher, they will receive 50GB of LIT Video usage.
