Streaming videos is a data-heavy affair so it’s not surprising that just a few episodes of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt can leave you high and dry for the rest of the month. With M1’s new offering, you can watch all the Luke Cage you want without constantly worrying about how much data it’s costing you.
Postpaid subscribers get unlimited access to video-streaming platforms Netflix, Dailymotion, and music-streaming Deezer for a promotional price of S$4.90 for the first 6 months. Following which, sticking with it will cost you S$9.90 a month. Of course, this fee is on top of your respective subscriptions to Netflix and Deezer. But that’s still a lot more affordable than paying for excess data when you're making the most of your Netflix subscription. Plus, you can use all that data you save for more constructive activities, like leaping into the YouTube wormhole.
The registration fee of S$10.70 will be waived the first time. But if you were to unsubscribe after bingeing on all the House of Cards available, and then subscribing when Season 5 shows up, you will have to cough up that S$10.70. While Netflix, Dailymotion, and Deezer are the only streaming services that Entertainment Data offer for now, subscribers can expect more content offerings in future.
This isn’t the first time a telco has recognised the need for no-holds-barred access to a streaming service. Singtel also has a music add-on that gives subscribers all the Spotify Premium they can stream amongst other apps, while StarHub has Go which comes in different options for everyone from the sports fan to the binge-watcher. It all comes down to your preferred entertainment platform.
