Safaricom has partnered with Kwesé iflix to cash in on the 2018 World Cup with a new data bundle dubbed Giga Football Passes.
The deal aims to help customers stream any of the 64 matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup live games on Kwesé iflix at KES 99 for 24 hours, inclusive of all data charges.
Customers will also have the option to stream any of the matches to their TVs through the Kwesé iflix app on the Safaricom BigBox and Digital Box. The Giga Football Passes will be available from June 14th, 2018 to all Safaricom customers, including for TV viewing through the Safaricom Digital Box. To access the service, customers will need to dial *544# on mobile and *400# for the Digital Box.
Safaricom’s 4G+, 4G and 3G broadband network now reaches 86 percent of the Kenyan population, and was recently rated Kenya’s fastest by Speedtest by Ookla.
Leveraging Safaricom’s superfast 4G+, 4G and 3G networks, subscribers will have the option to stream Kwesé iflix’s world-class programming, including the FIFA World Cup 2018 to any device of their choice, download or stream live for an unbelievable price of KES 99, which includes for the first time ever, unlimited data and unlimited Kwesé iflix access for 24 hours. However, users are not likely going to stream this matches as they are also available on FTA television and will be the focus of bars and restaurants who want to cash in on revelers too.
