Telkom launches a media streaming platform
8 September 2017
Data costs often dull the sparkle when it comes to digital entertainment in South Africa. Telkom hopes to take some of that worry away with the launch of LIT - a media platform for its subscribers that gives them access to streaming video and music content.
It is a first of its kind streaming service for South Africans. Providing access to on-demand movies, TV programmes online music and video through leading content providers.
The big attraction is the free YouTube streaming as well as zero-rated music streaming. Although subscription costs for content providers are not included, they can be deducted from customers' Telkom accounts through its reverse carrier billing option with some content providers.
