Telkom’s offer lasts for 12 months, from March 28, 2024, to March 27, 2025. It’s exclusive to Telkom customers who are signed up for certain plans. However, how long the offer lasts depends on the customer’s plan.

Customers who don’t cancel their subscriptions will have them automatically renewed after the offer period ends, but Telkom won’t cover the costs.

Amazon Prime Video Africa

Amazon Prime Video came to Africa in 2016, but its first African series, “Queen Sono,” came out in 2020. Since then, it’s gotten bigger. It’s now one of the top three online video streaming platforms in Africa, with Showmax leading and Netflix following. Plus, Prime Video Mobile Edition started in South Africa in 2022.

To get the Telkom offer, customers need to sign up for an Amazon service through Telkom. Then they’ll get a link to activate their subscription on the Amazon website.

How to Qualify For the Deal

If a customer subscribes to Amazon and qualifies for the deal, Telkom will cover the subscription fees for three, six, or twelve months, depending on their Telkom plan.

After the offer ends in March 2025, customers who want to keep using Amazon Prime Video/Prime Video Mobile Edition will need to pay the standard Amazon subscription charges. That’s R79 ($4) per month for Prime Video and R29 ($1.53) per month for Prime Video Mobile Edition.

As per Telkom, “The promotions, including Amazon services, are not redeemable, transferable or  refundable for cash and cannot be exchanged.”

Telkom Special Promotion Exclusively For Its Customers

Telkom recently launched a special promotion exclusively for its customers shortly after taking steps to strengthen its financial situation. The telecom company made headlines by selling its Swiftnet masts and towers business to Actis, a UK-based firm, and Royal Bafokeng Holdings for a hefty R6.75 billion ($355.4 million).

According to Telkom, this move was aimed at reducing debt and boosting its cash reserves, thus improving its overall financial health.
