TelOne has launched an exciting digital entertainment service dubbed Digital Entertainment On Demand (DEOD) which is Africa’s first fully converged linear on-demand news and entertainment streaming service.
The new product, which is a game changer in the market was officially launched by Information Communication and Technology (ICT) and courier services Honourable Minister Kazembe Kazembe on the 3rd of October at Sterkinekor, Borrowdale in the Capital.
To achieve this milestone, TelOne partnered with South Africa’s Discover Digital in order to give Zimbabweans access to a range of exciting new viewing options.
The new on-demand services will be bundled with TelOne broadband. Customers will have the option to Subscribe to On Demand packages, offering series, kids programming, a catalogue of movies, music videos, documentaries and lifestyle programming, as well as subscribe to a selection of TV channels, getting access to News, Sport and Inspiration channels, all at competitive prices and over various terms.
Customers can also rent the latest movies, and individual library movies not included in the subscription on-demand package, even without a subscription.
Speaking at the DEOD official launch Honourable Kazembe said the new product is certainly a game changer in the market.
“It is important that such innovative products are aggressively marketed so that they impact on your service uptake, usage and indeed the company’s revenue,” said Hon Kazembe
He went on saying “I am particularly heartened by the spirit of innovation that the company is exuding. In the technology sector, things are continuously changing and changing very fast. It takes some serious and deliberate planning towards innovation for you as an ICT company to survive. I am glad that the DEOD service launch we are witnessing here today is a sign that TelOne is not sleeping. We urge you to continue on this trajectory.”
