The LIT TVC 100 Packages then turns your home into a connected hub both in entertainment and productivity, concretely. Gradually Naspers through both DStv Now and Showmax has made its way into the OTT environment and Telkom LIT TVC 100 will provide one of the ecosystems within which it can thrive amongst other OTT’S. Make no mistake that the other internet service providers will hanker into the OTT’s application platforming over time; perhaps by platforming rather than erecting a new OTT service similar to Showmax or Netflix for that matter. It is a matter of how they will find their way there which will be of interest to those who care about the future of television. This is the new frontier that is opening up and Telkom dictates the way through data provision and platforming.
With ShowMax Premium what we have here is a binging spectacle. Blessed are those who have time and money for a monumental content consumption.
At a certain point at the headquarters of Naspers, the company that owns Multichoice, which in turn owns DStv and MWEB, the Research and Development team might have sat down and observed with a keen interest at the recent developments with regard to Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) via the web. Perhaps during their observation they might have snickered at Times Media Group’s VIDI, sneered at MTNFrontRow and casted a dismissive look at Altech’S NODE. After all they would have felt that they had responded to these platforms a long time ago without a straining their coffers.
