Vodacom has introduced Video Play Time which it says is a unique, world-first solution that actually takes the guess work out of data usage when streaming video over a mobile network. 

Vodacom says customers can simply purchase Video Time bundles in the Video Play app, based on how much time they want to stream their favourite movie or series.

In the event that a customer wants to stream a movie that is an hour and twenty minutes (1hr20min) long, they need to simply go to the Video Play app and buy that specific Video Play Time bundle (1h20min) and start streaming their movie without depleting their normal data bundle. 

Video Play Time can be used to access unlimited series of health and fitness documentaries, news, gospel, Hollywood and South African movies and more. 

Zubair Munshi, Executive Head of Video Commercial at Vodacom says the mobile operators strategy is to expand their digital content platforms and strive to become a leading go-to brand for all things entertainment.

“With Time Bundles and Video Play’s flexible subscription model, customers are not tied down to long-term contracts and can watch what they want and when they want to.”

Video Play customers can choose from daily subscriptions (from as little as R5 a day), weekly subscriptions or purchase blockbuster movies at a once-off fee. 

The service allows subscribers to watch trending content, regardless of location, on up to five devices on one profile. With family members spending more time at home due to the nationwide lockdown, everyone will be able to keep up to date with their favourite shows and watch what they want on their own devices. 

Customers can check their Video Play Time balances on the Video Play app on the Video bundles tab under View Balance. Video Time bundles are available on once-off basis and can be purchased from the app.
