Following a review of its digital strategy, MTN SA has taken a decision to decommission its video on demand service known as MTN VU. The service will be discontinued effective 03 May 2017.

In line with the ongoing review of its operations, MTN is also reviewing its streaming and content strategy as the costs associated with offering these services have become prohibitive.

“As a gesture of goodwill, we will pay three months of ShowMax subscriptions at no extra cost to affected customers. The decision to discontinue VU does not signal a departure from this space, we are still committed to becoming a significant player in this field. To this end, we will announce new services to the market at an appropriate time,” says Maxwell Nonge, Chief Digital Officer: MTN South Africa.
