Johannesburg - MTN and have joined forces via WeChat to make streaming Gareth Cliff’s new "unhinged and uncensored" radio show free of data charges for MTN Internet Services customers.

MTN launched four innovative internet services last week that allow subscribers to explore, chat and social network at discounted rates, with price points set at R15, R19, R29 and R39.

The MTN internet services also include special data rates for the world’s leading all-in-one mobile social app, WeChat. It is through CliffCentral’s WeChat Official Account (OA) that MTN subscribers will be able to tune in and stream his show free of charge.

Gareth Cliff says: "This next step with MTN and WeChat is a really exciting part of our CliffCentral venture as we’ll be able to make our unradio experience even more accessible."

Brian Gouldie, Chief Marketing Officer of MTN SA, echoed Cliff’s sentiment stating: "As MTN, we are very excited to be behind the mobile launch of CliffCentral.  Through offering uncapped, free WeChat streaming, we are enabling our customers to engage with this entertainment platform from their mobile devices, at no cost to them.  This opportunity is bolstered by our recently-revamped internet offerings that are connecting more and more South Africans on mobile applications.  It’s an exciting space that is showing exponential growth, with popular social apps such as WeChat taking off like wild-fire. It’s a fantastic partnership."

WeChat Africa MD, Brett Loubser, added: "We are thrilled to be involved in this relationship as we believe that only WeChat has the ability to make the CliffCentral experience as social and as fun as it is going to be."

Streaming the show via WeChat is just of the things CliffCentral OA subscribers will be able to do with video and voice clips from the CliffCentral team, daily polls, vouchers and chat groups being some of the other features CliffCentral and WeChat have on offer.

CliffCentral went live as of 1 May 2014. Follow the instructions below in order to listen to the show live via the CliffCentral WeChat OA.
