Data bundles for streaming videos on Vodacom

Last modified date

Streaming videos on YouTube and DSTV has become essential daily entertainment in South Africa, especially since we have been cooped up in our homes during Covid. You can buy a Vodacom video ticket and use those data bundles to stream videos on Hopster, VuClip, DSTV Now, and Showmax. You can also buy data bundles for exclusive use.

The best way we have found those video data bundles useful was when we were streaming DSTV Now on our phones because we could use a lower resolution on the phone thereby using fewer data bundles to watch our favorite shows.

Data bundles for streaming videos in specific video apps

If you’d rather buy bundles to access a specific video app/website, for instance, you just want to see a series on Showmax then you have the option to buy video data bundles specifically to access Showmax. The apps covered by Vodacom include DSTV Now, VuClip, Hopster, and Showmax. You can use the USSD code *111# or *135# to buy these video data bundles, but the My Vodacom app always has specials running, so use the app instead as the images show below.

  • Open the My Vodacom App and tap the “Buy” button
  • In the Buy menu tap the “Video” button
    • From the “Category” menu select the Video app/website that you will be using
