The new streaming media boxes coming to South Africa
Econet Media recently launched its Kwesé TV player in South Africa. The launch followed Telkom’s unveiling of its LIT TV box. The launch of Kwesé Play and LIT TV means there will soon be three new major media players available in SA.
Kwesé Play is powered by Roku, and is the media player company’s official local partner. It is also the official Netflix partner for sub-Saharan Africa.
Telkom said its LIT TV player will be the first Google-certified Android TV media box in South Africa, with access to the full Google Play marketplace on the platform.
The two players will compete with the recently-launched Apple TV 4K, which is set to arrive in the country in the coming months. No local pricing is available as yet, though.
