The revolution for on-demand content streaming is here.
From September 1, Telkom – South Africa’s largest fixed-line telephone group – will be offering its customers LIT, a streaming service providing zero rated video and music streaming to select content partners for its FreeMe 2GB and up customers.
The Telkom LIT Video and LIT Music are giving Telkom customers access to on-demand movies, series, online video and music through some of the world’s most popular online content providers.
Telkom also announced the imminent launch LIT TV, offering Unlimited ADSL, Fibre and LTE SmartBroadband customers the Telkom LIT TVC 100 media box which allows customers to transform their TV into a smart TV, with pre-loaded content channels from our content providers.
LIT TV will be launched in September with Telkom’s Summer Campaign.
LIT TV includes a media streaming box and is designed for large screen TVs offering a completely new TV viewing experience.
The Android TV device allows consumers to truly customise their TV viewing, marking a break away from linear TV viewing.
The current content partners for LIT TV are ShowMax, YouTube, DSTV and Google Play Store.
For LIT Video, Telkom has partnered with Showmax, Netflix, YouTube and Google Play. For Lit Music, Telkom has partnered with Google Play Music, Apple Music and Simfy Africa. This means that when customers stream content from these sites it will not be deducted from their FreeMe data bundle.
“We have already focused on disrupting the data market. Now, we are upping our game to provide our customers with a compelling proposition for all the data we’ve given them,” said Telkom Consumer CEO Mr Attila Vitai.
“Our LIT offer enables South Africans to access world-class, on demand, streaming content, without incurring additional data costs. We believe this is a game changer.”
