New SVOD service DEOD set to launch in South Africa
21 April 2017
Digital Entertainment On Demand (DEOD), a new video streaming service is set to launch in South Africa in the coming weeks. The service is being launched by Discover Digital, the company which powers MTN’s VOD service VU.
Discover Digital said DEOD will offer various subscription packages, movie rentals, and premium live TV services. In addition to subscription options, DEOD will also offer movie rentals including latest big screen release.
On its website, Discover Digital said it realised an alternative model to streaming video was needed through the course of its work with telcos and businesses which wanted to offer on-demand or Internet TV services. The service will also support Chromecast and Airplay, certain “bespoke” Internet media player devices, and a smart TV app.
