black is extending its free data promotion to stream content until the end of June. The free data can be accessed on any of Cell C’s prepaid or contract plans and can be used to browse, watch or download content on black.
“We launched the free data promotion for black in May 2017 to allow Cell C subscribers to fully immerse themselves in the amazing content black has to offer. For most consumers, the new year brings added expenses and we have decided to extend the promotional period to the end of June 2019 to ensure Cell C customers continue to watch their favourite series and movies without incurring additional data costs,” says Precious Nkabinde, PR manager for black.
Having recently launched an obligation free seven-day trial for Binge Elite which is an all access pass to the highest subscription on black with the exception of movie rentals, this is an opportunity for new Cell C customers to preview the streaming service for free before choosing to opt in long term.
