As part of their ongoing commitment to digital transformation and enhancing connectivity, Freevision Play aims to bridge the digital divide by offering rich, diverse content to all South Africans.

Free for all

Freevision Play is accessible to anyone with an internet connection and can be accessed via smartphones, tablets, and smart televisions. This makes it incredibly convenient for users to enjoy their favorite shows and radio stations whether on the go or from the comfort of their homes.

In South Africa, many people still encounter barriers to accessing quality content and information. Freevision Play tackles this challenge by utilizing broadband infrastructure to deliver free, high-quality content to all communities. This platform empowers users with access to educational, informational, and entertainment content, thereby promoting learning and engagement nationwide.

Own OTT platform

For broadcasters, Freevision Play provides an innovative solution to reach a broader audience without the high costs associated with creating and maintaining their own OTT platforms and the challenge of aggregating audiences. By joining Freevision Play, broadcasters can expand their viewership, interact more effectively with their audience, and generate additional revenue through advertising. Freevision Play covers the upfront investment costs and creates a multi-tenant platform, offering viewers and listeners a diverse range of choices while giving broadcasters access to new audiences and viewers.

Freevision Play is entirely free to access. Users can enjoy a wide selection of live TV and radio channels, as well as on-demand catch-up content, without any subscription fees. This ensures that everyone, regardless of their economic status, can benefit from the wealth of content available on the platform.

Freevision Play vs Freevision

Freevision Play is an OTT streaming platform that provides free access to a wide range of live TV and radio channels, as well as on-demand content. It features Free Ad-Supported Streaming Television (FAST) channels, offering users a flexible and accessible viewing experience tailored to the evolving preferences of modern consumers who favor digital and mobile-friendly solutions.

In contrast, Freevision is our Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite television service, requiring a satellite dish and decoder for access. While Freevision focuses on delivering content via satellite, Freevision Play utilizes internet connectivity to provide a more flexible and accessible viewing experience.
