This is the Telkom LIT Android media box

Telkom will launch its new media platform LIT in September, offering free music and video streaming to broadband subscribers.

LIT TV is one of the offerings on the Telkom platform, and provides zero-rated data for various services.

Subscribers on qualifying broadband packages will be able to stream series and movies without depleting data.

The free value-added service will be available on HOMEunlimited 8Mbps and up for DSL and fibre, and SmartBroadband Wireless 50GB and 100GB.

If you sign up for a qualifying HOMEunlimited or SmartBroadband Wireless package on contract, you will also receive a free Telkom LIT TVC 100 media box.

The media box is priced at R1,099, and is an ICASA-approved and Google-certified Android 7 device

It includes Showmax, YouTube, DStv Now, and the Google Play Store at launch.

The TVC 100 also includes a wireless remote control that lets you conduct searches by speaking into it.

Searches are conducted across all supported apps, allowing you to find content from multiple services at once.

Content partners on LIT at launch are:

  • Google Play Music and Movies
