Thank God for the World Cup, Ugandans have been brought closer to actual television streaming experience. At the start of the tournament, we announced two partnerships involving MTN Uganda with Kwese, and Africell with StarTimes Uganda. For the other half of the population that was not catered for, here we go. Airtel Uganda has in partnership with Kwese launched the Airtel Kwese iFlix Pack mobile TV services, especially for this World Cup season.
The partnership has been reached to offer customers and subscribers a chance to watch TV on-the-go regardless of location, time or whether or not they have an active TV package. One can pay for a subscription of their choice from 1 day, 3 days, 7 days to 30 days; granting them access to free unlimited content within the paid for period.
Unlike the MTN-Kwese deal where you pay for subscription and data separately, Airtel Uganda is providing a unique proposition to its customers, where one subscription gives them access to both Airtel’s discounted data bundles as well as content from Kwese iflix, in what they are calling a two in one subscription through airtel money.
The data bundle provided is strictly for use on Kwese iflix app, as it cannot be used to access other websites, YouTube, Facebook, google, etc. Once it is depleted before your validity expires, you can still use your normal data bundles to access Kwese iflix VIP content. If you have 2 data bundles running, Kwese data bundle will be utilized first for viewing kwese iflix content
Kwesé iflix CEO, Mayur Patel, said,
“The Kwesé iflix app offers customers the best in sports and entertainment, anytime and anywhere. Consumers now have unlimited access to all their favourite shows in a way which suits their lifestyle – on-the-go, on their phone and on their terms. We are excited to deliver our content to even more Ugandans through this partnership”
