Vodacom has announced a new promotional offer that may be of interest to any of its customers who want to try out Amazon Prime Video. This as, six months worth of free access is being made available to the streaming platform.
Vodacom confirms that all existing and upgrading contract customers can enjoy six months of Amazon Prime Video on its network. It adds that the launch offer is also available to prepaid and top-up customers who have spent a minimum of R150 with the operator in the last 30 days.
“Vodacom customers will be able to enjoy movies, TV shows and popular Amazon Originals like Upload, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Boys, The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Carnival Row and Good Omens. Customers can watch Prime Video on up to 3 devices at the same time, both at home and on the go, with the Prime Video app on any compatible TV, smartphone, tablet, and more,” it explained in a press release sent to Hypertext.
Having watched many of the highlighted shows above, The Boys is one we can highly recommend, as is American Gods, which begins season 3 on 10th January next year.
“We continuously strive to partner with premium content providers to deliver compelling propositions that keep customers connected for a better future. The introduction of this Amazon Prime Video offer for our customers underpins our commitment to enabling a digital society,” adds Jorge Mendes, chief officer of Consumer Business at Vodacom.
Along with the Amazon Prime Video membership, Vodacom customers will also be able to access Prime Gaming, which includes free games every month and a free Twitch (owned by Amazon) channel subscription every month.
If you’re interested in talking up the offer, it is important to note that Amazon Prime Video costs R79.99 per month (at the time of writing), and will take effect after the six-month period.
Vodacom also adds that the subscription can be cancelled at any time by visiting its Offers page and selecting “MANAGE SUBSCRIPTIONS”.
With most South Africans hunkering down for the festive season should lockdown still be in effect, it may be worthwhile trying out Prime Video for free.
