Telkom confirmed today it had secured a partnership with the leading internet entertainment service, Netflix.  


The partnership is Netflix’s first such agreement with a South African telecommunications company and a significant milestone as the company seeks to bring South African consumers the latest technologies and a great entertainment experience. 


Telkom Content Executive, Wanda Mkhize said, “we are excited to expand our content offering with Netflix. The Netflix partnership allows us to offer more entertainment. 


“As a start, we can respond to customer requests for the inclusion of Netflix on Telkom’s LIT TV Box,” she added. Netflix will be available on Telkom’s LIT TV Box later this year. 


Maria Ferreras, Netflix’s VP Business Development EMEA, said: "We are excited to partner with Telkom and highlight our commitment to South Africa. With this partnership, Telkom users will easily access the most-loved entertainment experiences that Netflix provides. 

Netflix service in South Africa includes licensed and original TV series, movies, stand up comedies, documentaries and children's programmes. Netflix is the home of award-winning Original series and movies like Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, The Crown and The Kissing Booth.   


Mkhize said the teams are working on exciting mobile & broadband service offerings to be launched before the end of the year. These will include enhanced LIT video options and data offerings.

Let me start by just saying - WHOA!!! SWEET!!!

This is great news as the wait is finally over...


I will not post my frustration but instead will actually send a Thumbs-Up on this partnership.

Once your LIT Box completes its newest OTA firmware upgrade, You will be so pleased to know that you no longer have to use different means to get NetFlix to work, as it now just works with the new updated app.


Thank You for fixing NetFlix.

Have check for new updates of the LIT box - 

I have not updated Netflix as yet as I have configured not to automatically update apps on the LIT box.

I'm not sure if you could install a previous version of Netflix or not.
