If you haven't yet joined the streaming revolution, now is a great time to get started. No more repeat programs, endless adverts and bland shows; You now have a choice of endless content and tailored entertainment through Video-On-Demand, or V.O.D. for short. Everything is on your terms and to top it off, these streaming services may actually end up saving you money!
V.O.D. is like having a massive library of movies and programmes, or content, available to you. Most do not have adverts, and you can choose what you want to watch. You can pause, fast forward or rewind, and view episodes in any order you choose. All this content is streamed to practically any of your devices that has an Internet connection, and can host the necessary app or browser.
South Africans tend to be cautious of new technology and moving over to a new service and provider can be a big step for many. Thankfully, all the latest V.O.D. streaming services have been tried and tested and have proven so successful that many South Africans are now choosing to cancel their satellite TV in favour of only streaming services.
Netflix and Showmax are currently the most popular. There is also Amazon Prime Video, DEOD and Black by Cell C. Showmax, DEOD and Black support a good mix of local content, whereas the rest are primarily aimed at a more international audience.
In order to enjoy these services you need:
1. The device you use to watch the content on,
2. The installation of an app to access the service or access to a web browser on your chosen device,
3. A stable internet connection and lastly,
4. A subscription to a streaming service.
V.O.D subscription services are generally month-to-month and very easy to configure and activate. We only offer this warning: Make sure you keep an eye on your data (V.O.D. can quickly eat into your data bundles, though with Kiklo’s uncapped packages this won’t be an issue) and do your best not to binge a whole season of your favourite series in one sitting!
