Cell C launched its black data package in November 2017 allowing Cell C subscribers to stream or download content in the black entertainment platform launched by Cell C catering for both the local market and those that enjoy international content. This was actually designed to reduce the cost of having to download and stream content from the internet.

What is black data Cell C?

The black data plans were made specifically for Cell C users to enjoy the services of the streaming service BLACK. Black is a platform that offers its clients all-round entertainment by allowing its users to view video-on-demand by streaming. The service was designed to be diverse, and it provides local and international content. It will include live streaming of five top European football club channels, and services like gaming, sports betting and ticketing. Customers can subscribe from as little as R5 per day and use prepaid airtime (which is a first in South Africa) in addition to debit/credit cards and vouchers to purchase content.

“THIS IS ABOUT BRINGING MORE RELEVANT CONTENT TO MORE PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY. AND CONTENT CAN CONSUME QUITE A LARGE AMOUNT OF DATA, WHICH IS WHY WE ARE BRINGING VARIOUS PRODUCTS AT EXCEPTIONAL PRICES FOR CONSUMERS LOOKING TO ACCESS BLACK VIA A MOBILE CONNECTION.”

“THE COST OF DATA HAS OFTEN BEEN CITED AS A BARRIER TO ENTRY FOR CUSTOMERS WANTING TO STREAM OR DOWNLOAD CONTENT USING THEIR MOBILE DATA. THE BLACK DATA PRODUCTS WILL ADDRESS THIS CHALLENGE. CUSTOMERS CAN ACCESS DATA FROM AS LITTLE AS 1C/MB OR R7.50 PER GIG,” SAID CELL C CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, JOSE DOS SANTOS.
