Did you know that South Africa has its very own, easy-to-use video on demand (VOD) service? If you missed the VIDI train then it’s time to get familiar with this new and exciting entertainment service. VIDI allows users to stream the latest movies and TV shows over the internet, giving your more entertainment options than ever before. And, in the spirit of great entertainment VIDI has also given us some incredible entertainment hampers to give away to the WomenStuff readers. So keep reading to find out more about VIDI and how you can win!

VIDI allows users to access thousands of hours of entertainment across multiple devices and offers two payment options for viewers – the unlimited subscription and a instant rental. The Unlimited Subscription offers viewers an “all-you-can-eat buffet’ of movies and award-winning TV series for only R149 per month. Users also get a free 7-day trial to use the service and see if they like it. We love that you don’t need a dish or a decoder to use the service and that you can cancel your subscription anytime as there are no contracts.

If you have commitment issues you can also make use of the Instant Rental option. The a-la-Carte option includes a combination of the latest releases just off the theatrical circuit for R27 per rental and a selection of premier library titles from as little as R15. You don’t need to be a subscriber to rent from this catalogue and once again you don’t need a dish or decoder to access the library of entertainment. Speaking of the library, there are more than 1000 hours of television series and over 100 movies in the VIDI library already and the line-up is constantly growing! This includes a selection of children’s content from TV series to the latest movie releases.

The great thing about VIDI is that it allows you to watch thousands of hours of entertainment when you want – there’s no scheduling recordings or setting reminders for your favourite shows as they’re always available for you when you want to watch them. All you need to do is visit the VIDI website and register. Once you have signed up, you can instantly watch entertainment on your laptop, smart phone and tablet via the VIDI app (available in the iTunes and Android stores). But what about internet speeds? A minimum of 1MB speed is needed for the service to operate correctly but obviously the higher the speed the better your viewing experience.

So now that you have the 411 on VIDI head on through to the VIDI website and give the 7-day free trial a try! You can say Hi to VIDI on Facebook.
