650 hours streaming music
Did you know that signing up to Deezer lets you enjoy over 44 million tunes from local and international artists? And with 100 Gigs of free data you can create a different playlist for every day of the month.
800 app downloads
What's a smartphone without its apps? You can check out our list of the most memorable apps of 2017 or have a look at the best apps to help you run your business. There are even apps out there to help you save you time and money. With 100 Gigs of data, you should have no problems downloading all the apps you want.
100 SD Movie downloads
With Showmax you can watch whatever you want, whenever you want, online – there's loads of local content available, plus all the biggest and best from Hollywood. With over 20 000 series and movies to binge watch, ShowMax will keep you and your family entertained throughout the month.
You can also be super smart, and download a bunch of content from Showmax to watch later. The Showmax app allows 25 series episodes or movies to be downloaded onto your device, which you then watch offline without using any data. And you’ll have 30 days in which to watch them. Once you’ve started an episode or a movie, you’ll have to watch it within 48 hours. This is a serious win if you’re about to go away for the weekend to a place with limited internet, or before a long trip on public transport, because you can take your series and movies with you, and watch anywhere.
Sign up for Showmax for just R99 per month, and add it your Vodacom bill for maximum convenience.
