Safaricom has announced a new World Cup offer that goes by the name Giga Football Pass. With this pass customers will be able to stream all the 64 World Cup matches on their smartphones, Tablets and Smart Tv boxes through the Kwesé iflix app.
This is the first time we are seeing such a product this part of the world and I am sure football fans will appreciate it. You will not have to worry about incurring hefty charges if you had plans to watch the live matches.
Owing to an impressive uptake of smart Devices, telco Safaricom and Econet-owned Kwese and iFlix platforms have partnered to offer Giga Football Bundle that will allow streaming of world cup matches that will begin in the next one week.
With some of the matches starting at 3pm (Kenyan time), you will most likely miss some of them if you do not plan to watch the games on your smartphone when on the go. Having this option, there will be no need to rush home everyday just to ensure you do not miss on any of the games. All you will have to do is take out your smartphone and watch the live games when,where and how you want to stream from.
If you have a reliable home internet solution, like, say, Safaricom Home Fibre, which I use, you can just stream the World Cup from whichever platform that will be offering such a service at the highest possible quality. This can be by use of a smart TV, streaming directly on a computer, mirroring your computer or connecting it directly to your TV via HDMI, or, more likely, by use of an Android-powered media streaming box.
If you go with my suggestion of the Safaricom Digital TV and Internet Box then you might want to take advantage of the Giga Football Pass, the data bundles meant specifically for enabling as many of us as possible to watch the World Cup without having to worry about the amount of data we are consuming. Especially if you either lack a fibre connection or want to be able to stream matches on the go through your smartphone.
As I sign off to go watch my favorite team, Take note, Giga is BIG! Just like the name, the GIGA Football Pass offers big value for money while allowing you to watch football games live Anytime Anywhere.
