Opera to cash in on Netflix in Africa on Opera Max app

opera-maxSo the latest way to sell your internet service or app in these post #NetflixEverywhere launch days, is to claim that it’s best for Netflix. Lots of free advertising it’s getting this video streaming service. The latest on that bandwagon is Opera, who most of us know for the much loved Opera Mini. Opera Mini is ofcourse just not enough anymore. Mostly because the internet browser accounts only for a fraction of the stuff eating mobile data on your phone right now.

There are others data hogs like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Your email app and ofcourse now, Netflix. This is why Opera released Opera Max; an app that works in the background to make those data heavy apps use less data. 50% less, claims the company – hence them jumping on the opportunity for some PR with the launch of Netflix on the continent.

A press event notification we just received had this:

“Opera Max is the best solution for new Netflix viewers across Africa as Opera Max saves data on HTTPS videos without any significant loss in quality. It even reduces buffering on any connection, including crowded Wi-Fi networks. The data-saving technology can extend data plans by up to 50% for free.”
