South Africans can now access Vidi’s local video streaming service for just R5 per day. The daily charge will be deducted directly from their cellular airtime balance, allowing them to better control how much they spend on their entertainment.
VIDI has announced a new R5 a day package for access to its library of thousands of hours of titles. This “Daily Recurring” offer is available across all major cell phone networks, with the subscription charged to the account or deducted straight from the available airtime balance. Users do not have to re-subscribe every day as the service will automatically continue until the subscriber opts out. They do not need a credit card.
Says VIDI’s Head of Marketing Taryn Uhlmann: “The R5 a day offer is a great solution because it essentially enables your phone to become a quick payment gateway and allows you to control how much you spend on what you want to watch.”
While payment is via a phone, the content can be viewed via a computer.
Key series currently available on Vidi include three seasons of Downtown Abbey, Sherlock and In Plain Sight, two seasons of Whitechapel, The Super Hero Squad and Sadie J and new-to-VIDI shows such as the BBC’s Torchwood, Alias, with Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper and the classic John Cleese comedy Fawlty Towers.
