Secures International Content

LAGOS: The African Internet TV platform is adding to its extensive Nollywood catalogue with the addition of Hollywood, Bollywood, telenovela and Korean programming.

The service, which is available throughout English-speaking Africa, already has more than 10,000 hours of Nollywood content. Launched in December 2011, offers unlimited, commercial-free viewing to subscribers for $2.50 a month. The company has plans to continue to expand its international library, while also renewing its focus on local films, TV series and documentaries. At least half of the catalogue is homegrown African content.

Jason Njoku,'s co-founder and CEO, said, “We have been passionate about bringing affordable content to viewers across Africa. This is just another milestone towards that. Internet TV will enable hundreds of millions of fans across the continent to finally be able to access awesome content.

“We see the web and mobile platform almost as equal to DTH and DTT platforms in the next few years and our focus is on achieving this in Africa, supplying the 800-million strong population of sub-Saharan Africa with the best content on the planet, be it from Nollywood, Hollywood or Bollywood.”
