Vivo has started marketing the postpaid Vivo Selfie: the new plans include Netflix subscription, Rappi Prime or Spotify Premium, in addition to 25 GB of internet and 25 GB of exclusive allowance for these services, costing up to R$164.99 per month. Customers will have WhatsApp without discounting the package, in addition to unlimited international roaming days in the Americas. We compared the new offers with the plans sold by Claro, TIM and Oi.
- Vivo TV extends open signal for news and children's channels
- Vivo Easy Prime is launched with payment monthly fee and expired internet
These are Vivo Selfie plans:
|Plan||Subscription included||Internet Franchise||Price|
|Vivo Selfie Rappi||Rappi Prime||25 GB of internet|
25 GB to use with Rappi
|R$ 149.99/ month|
|Vivo Selfie Spotify||Spotify Premium Individual||25 GB internet|
25 GB to use with Spotify
|Vivo Selfie Netflix||Standard Netflix (HD + 2 screens)||25 GB of internet|
25 GB to use with Netflix
All options include unlimited calls and SMS to any operator (including area code), WhatsApp without discounting the franchise a (except video calling) and access to the GoRead, NBA Basic and Hube Newspapers apps. Those who carry out number portability still receive an extra 5 GB per month for a year – this benefit also applies to current customers, as provided by Anatel and by regulation of the plan itself.
In addition, the packages include unlimited international roaming daily in the countries of the Americas, which yields from 500 MB to 1 GB per day in visited countries, unlimited incoming calls and 50 minutes of calls made to any operator. According to the regulation, it is possible to add up to 5 additional lines for R$ 89.90 per month per chip, sharing the internet allowance of the main package and unlimited calls.
A good advantage of Vivo Selfie is that the plan has no loyalty, that is, it can be canceled or changed at any time without charging a fine. The operator usually emphasizes control and postpaid plans with a 12-month fidelity of automatic renewal – that is, if the customer does not cancel on the exact day of the end of the contract, the customer must pay a termination penalty.
Hiring separately, the Rappi Prime subscription costs R$29.90, the individual Spotify Premium costs R$16.90, and the Netflix charges R$32.90 for the standard plan. Vivo includes 25 GB exclusive to use with these services: this is useful for Netflix and Spotify, but it doesn't make any sense with Rappi, which doesn't spend enough internet to require a dedicated data allowance.
Vivo Selfie runs out of 99 and Premiere
As advanced exclusively by Tecnoblog, Vivo had published on its website the table of plans with 99 and Premiere, in addition to the officially announced Spotify, Rappi and Netflix. At the time, 99 contacted us and said they were not aware of this partnership; a short time later, the operator removed mentions of the company.
It also makes sense that Premiere is dropped at this first moment: with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, football championships are suspended. Claro, the largest operator in the pay-TV market, stopped selling Premiere until the return of matches.
The Vivo Selfie Premiere plan would be the most expensive of all, costing R$ 199.99 per month with Premiere Play subscription included – separately, the platform costs R$79.90 per month. It would have 35 GB of internet and outros 35 GB to be used with football streaming.
Is Vivo Selfie worth it?
Compared to Vivo's postpaid service, Vivo Selfie can be more interesting: in addition to the service subscription included, the new offers have a higher data allowance.
