[Channel24 for City Press] I reviewed the Kwesé Play powered by Roku box for City Press this weekend in the paper.
If you have a fibre connection and you’re not quite sure where to start when it comes to entertainment, the first thing you should probably do is cancel your satellite TV subscription. There’s a new player on the scene and it wants to be everything DStv is not, which is a good thing for consumers.
Before you get started, you need to have a TV with at least one HDMI port, broadband internet and a broadband router. It’s best to research all fibre providers servicing your area before signing up, and try to go for a symmetrical connection, that is, identical upload and download speeds; and uncapped data, depending on the size of your household and consumption habits.
The Kwesé Play set-top box powered by Roku provides over 100 streaming channels, all free. As an official content partner, Netflix is also thrown in free for the first three months.
