Vodacom to launch new video content service soon

Vodacom CEO Shameel Joosub has confirmed the company will launch a new content service which will offer a wide selection of media.

Speaking in an interview with MyBroadband, Joosub said the platform would launch in the coming weeks.

“We will be launching a new video service in the coming weeks or so, which will include a variety of content,” said Joosub.

The platform will offer multiple genres and types of content, and will include access to third-party services.

Unlike most streaming services, Vodacom’s platform will offer access to other streaming services – including Netflix and Showmax.

Joosub said the company would also have its own video service on offer, and users will be able to purchases a subscription or access to individual titles.

Compelling offer

When asked how Vodacom’s platform will differentiate itself in the content market, Joosub said the company is approaching the product from a different angle.
