Cell C has announced that subscribers using the black streaming service won’t incur data costs while streaming.
The offer extends to both existing and new black subscribers, so if you’ve been dancing with the idea of subscribing to black now might be a good time to take the plunge.
black allows users to stream movies, series and even sport. The service offers a seven-day free trial and subscriptions start at R5 per day.
“We know the biggest hurdle to gaining access to streaming content is the data component, and so for the next three months, any existing or new black customer that is also on the Cell C network will not have to even consider having data to be able to download or stream their favourite shows,” Cell C chief executive officer Jose Dos Santos said in a statement.
Customers won’t need a minimum balance to have their black data zero-rated, added Dos Santos.
“We are very excited to have partnered with Cell C on this initiative. We understand that one of the biggest barriers to content consumption is the cost of data. We believe that this is one step to start alleviating the cost of data for black customers on the Cell C network,” black chief executive Surie Ramasary said.
Subscribers can stream Jumanji, Star War: The Last Jedi and more right now, and Black Panther will be coming to the service in June.
