Telkom’s affordable – and free – streaming service was launched in November 2020 and today there is a new category available for users.

That category is for catching up on programming you may have missed on SABC and it’s called Catch Up.

This means you can use your smartphone, tablet or notebook to watch content from SABC 1, 2, 3, SABC Sport and SABC Education.

“You can’t get much better value by providing a zero-cost Catch Up service across already-free streaming channels. TelkomONE’s vision is to provide the widest selection of content, at the most affordable price, and backed by unmatched functionality. Scarcely six months after launch, we believe we’re delivering on all fronts and the viewer is the winner,” says Wanda Mkhize, executive for smart home and content at Telkom.

The executive says that TelkomONE will continue to add new content to this category with local “box set” shows set to account for 1 200 hours of content in the coming weeks.

There are also full length series such as Shaka Zulu and Bedford Wives available to stream through the Catch Up category for free.

We also spotted several documentaries from Deutsche Welle which is cool.

The full TelkomONE service features a content library including 1 800 hours of video content as well as 27 linear channels, 30 audio channels and 22 radio channels.

Access to this full suite of content starts at just R7 a day and if you are a Telkom subscriber you get 90MB of data to stream the content you want, included in that R7 fee.
