Cell C Black Rolls Out Two New Streaming Packages

Cell C’s streaming service Black has announced the introduction of two new subscription packages.

The two packages are Black TV Access, which offers a significant focus on local content at $4.78 (R69) per month; and Black TV Premium, a mix of international and local content at $6.86 (R99) per month.

Precious Nkabinde, the PR manager for Black, said that in the content-streaming provider’s efforts to create a unique user experience for its subscribers, it was essential to consider improving on the package structure.

She added that furthermore, in an ever-changing economy, Black is particularly committed to providing affordable entertainment for the whole family and that this is apparent in the significant reduction in Black subscription fees.

The company stated that subscribers could also opt into a Fox+ or National Geographic+ subscription that is available for $4.78 (R69) per month, without an active subscription to the two main packages.

Nkabinde said that the National Geographic+ and the Fox+ package is exclusive to Black and offers video-on-demand content from National Geographic and Fox, including Natural Disasters, The Americans, The Walking Dead, Empire and Mars.
She also noted that soccer fans could opt for club channels, including Liverpool TV, Barca TV, Chelsea TV, Real Madrid TV and Manchester United TV – available as daily, weekly or monthly subscriptions.

Other services which remain unchanged include movie rentals at $1.73 (R25) each.
