Yea, saw it on techcentral 2 days ago.More info in the Tech Central article: http://www.techcentral.co.za/times-media-to-launch-vidi-vod/50550/
What I don't understand is they are launching the service in the next two weeks bu they are still working on pricing? Why couldn't they just have the pricing ready before announcing this service to the world (SA). And they mention it will be priced aggressively, I hope not compared to Multichoice but rather Netflix or similar. I also get the impression that you would pay a subscription for series and then extra for movie rentals, probably per movie.
In the end that is what will decide who tries it out, I definitely won't until I know what it costs. If the price it at R500 a month then there's no point. Closer to R100 or so, it could be nice depending on what content they have. Don't really care to pay extra for movie rentals. But if there is no price, I'm not interested.Yea, saw it on techcentral 2 days ago.
It looks they launch with a free 30 day trial (for leads i suppose) so you only have to pay from October.That explains the pricing thing, they first want to get your details. I'll also assume that hidden in their t&c's will state that you are automatically charged from October UNLESS you cancel.
It looks like a Vidi and a Vidi+ (for newer movie rentals) thing.
