Basketball lovers are in for a treat as the NBA Africa game takes place today (August 5) at 1700hrs. If you are an Econet subscriber then you are in for an even better treat as the game will stream “zero rated” for you on the Kwese App. All you need to do is download the app for Android or iPhone and sign up. Once that’s done you are all set to watch with absolutely zero data! The zero rating will run from 1600-2000hrs meaning you can also watch the match build up and a bit of some post match.
Econet made the announcement to Livestream the NBA Africa game for free this morning on the Facebook and Twitter pages this morning

Kwese TV continues to push the envelope of TV and Sports-casting with their innovative ideas and a strong presence online. Their Facebook Page has in the last few months been live-streaming a lot of sport, a great move as most Zimbos use Facebook quite extensively due to relatively cheaper Facebook bundles as compared to regular internet data.
Now could this be the beginning of zero-data rated days to come? It’s definitely interesting that Econet is doing this and how they will follow it up. The zero-rating of the NBA Africa game is obviously a great marketing strategy to popularize both Kwese TV and the Kwese App.
