Video-on-demand and streaming services for TV and movies is the way of the future. The old way of being told what you can watch and when you can watch it is going the way of the dinosaur, with streaming services giving flexibility, accessibility, and badly needed affordability. To fill this gap in South African TV we now have VIDI, South Africa’s first video-on-demand service.
Personally, I haven’t had a chance to sign up yet, but this is definitely an idea I can get behind. I’ve always wanted a decent alternative to DSTV for TV shows and movies, and VIDI might be the answer. Of course it does have its downsides (no sport for instance) but the pros may well outweigh the cons.
So, what are your thoughts on VIDI’s launch? Have you signed up for their free 30-day trial? If so, what has your experience been like? And if not, what are your thoughts on streaming in general?
