New Netflix and ShowMax competitor name revealed

PCCW unveiled to South Africa on 16 September.

The company sent out invitations to media recently, teasing that it would launch the “first international video on demand entertainment service” in South Africa.

Based on the invitation, it was expected that the new operator would offer a transactional VOD, or online movie rental service.

Bloomberg went on to report that a VOD service backed by Hong Kong-based PCCW would launch in South Africa in September.

Speculation was that PCCW would launch NOWtv or VuClip in the country.

PCCW later confirmed to MyBroadband that it will launch a new VOD service in SA.
