Viu, a leading pan-regional OTT video service from PCCW Media Group with more than 41 million monthly active users*, is excited to announce its new international content offering for Viu Premium subscribers in South Africa.
Viu South Africa has partnered with Discovery, the world’s leading real-life entertainment company, to bring Discovery’s TLC content to South Africa’s Viu Premium subscribers.

Discovery leads in producing content which powers peoples’ passions, meeting the entertainment needs of a wide audience across the globe. The TLC offering taps into the appetite of lovers of reality series, and the boom in South Africa’s interest in local and international reality TV makes the genre one of the country’s most popular.

Viu Premium subscribers can look forward to premium global hits, all on-demand, ad-free, with unlimited downloads from as little as R5 a day, alongside practical, familiar, and easy payment methods.
