U Mobile goes insane with Hero Postpaid P98 with 30GB data, free unlimited streaming

U Mobile Video-Onz

Is there stopping U Mobile? Short answer: No. The little orange telco with the biggest balls heart is doing it again. This time kicking its own industry-defining Hero Postpaid P70 plan off the telco pedestal with something greatly better–the P98.

30GB of fun

30GB. What do we do with so much data, U Mobile? Beats me. And it’s going to get even harder. Because with the P98, U Mobile is also throwing in the all-new Video-Onz unlimited streaming service in for free, in addition to a free subscription to viu. This free subscription is valid till 31 July 2017.

If calls are still your thing, there’s unlimited calls to all networks. Hero P98 will of course also get the full benefits of U Mobile Data BackPack which lets you roam for free and bring your monthly data quota with you; and WiFi Calling.

Wait, let’s talk about Video-Onz again. Unlimited video streaming has been extended to 18 partners, which is a huge leap from when Video-Onz was introduced just three months ago. To appeal to a wider audience, it has added The Edge TV and BFM 89.9 to join the likes of Viki, Dailymotion, YuppTV and Crunchyroll.

U Mobile Video-Onz partners

Here’s a full list:

  • HyppTV
  • Viu
  • Iflix
  • YouTube
  • Youku

Video-Onz free streaming has been extended till 31 December 2016, and according to U Mobile’s chief marketing officer Jasmine Lee, it’s not stopping there. More video partners will be added soon.

If you’re not sure what Video-Onz is or how it works, read this.

Free unlimited streaming is available for Hero P98, Hero P70, i90 and i130 plans. Other postpaid/prepaid/broadband plans get free extra data for Video-Onz. For instance, if you monthly plan gives you 5GB of data quota, an additional 5GB will be allocated to you for Video-Onz.

Note that from 1 August, Video-Onz for Hero P70 will no longer be unlimited, but limited to 7GB per month. Looks like U Mobile is giving you subtle hints to upgrade to its new hero plan.

You can also opt to share up to 3 lines for just MYR50 per line where you’ll get additional 3GB of data on top of your 30GB, as well as Video-Onz access.

Initial thoughts

This is a pretty insane move by U Mobile–one binge watchers and data crunchers will most definitely appreciate. Sure, streaming quality is limited to standard definition but since we’re likely to be watching via mobile, it shouldn’t be too much of a penalty.
