Kwesé Data Bundles

The Kwesé-iflix/MTN Uganda partnership seeks to give app users a smooth feel of the experience through time bundles, that are much cheaper than the normal data bundles. This is to make it both affordable and convenient for one to watch content at ease.

The time duration only accounts for the amount of time you spend while watching content on the app, not anymore or less.

DurationAmount (UGX)
2 Hours1600
4 Hours3200
6 Hours4800
12 Hours9600

Note that the subscription grants you access to all premium content on the app, while the data bundles allow you to stream the content seemlessly, without worry of data running out.

How is it different from Kwese TV app?

If you have the Kwese TV satellite, you can download and use the Kwese TV app to use on other devices via the internet. This app allows you to expand the number of screens you can enjoy your Kwese TV to up to 5 screens. It also helps you to access your TV while on the move, more like moving around with your decoder, dish and TV in your pocket.

Whereas the Kwese TV app allows you to watch scheduled programs, Kwesé iflix gives you whatever is on offer at whichever time that suits you, since it is a Video on Demand service that has a library of movies and shows.
