New SA video-on-demand service teases movies, series

Vidi, a video-on-demand service from Times Media Group set to launch in South Africa during September, advertised its upcoming launch in the Sunday Times on 31 August 2014.

One of two full-page ads in the newspaper suggests that Breaking Bad will be one of the TV shows on offer through Vidi.

Breaking Bad ended its 5 season run in 2013, but it proved popular among TV viewers and critics, receiving a number of Primetime Emmy Awards between 2008 and 2014.

In its other full-page advertisement, Vidi implies that it will also offer films and series such as American Hustle, the Lego Movie, Free Birds, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Brothers and Sisters, Need for Speed, and Pretty Little Liars.

Details of the upcoming launch of the service are sketchy, but Vidi has sent out notices to the press saying to “save the date” for Wednesday, 10 September 2014.

It is expected that pricing and launch details will be revealed then.
