Iflix And Econet Media Join Forces To Deliver Video-On-Demand (VOD) Service Across Africa

Iflix (a content streaming company similar to Netflix) and Econet Media have announced they have entered into a strategic partnership to roll-out their video content streaming services in the major markets across Africa.

According to the statement released from the both organisations, it seems that the first roll-out will take place in Zimbabwe, where iflix will seek to deliver its subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service to existing customers of Econet Wireless mobile. The launch date for this particular service is to be determined.

As part of the strategic commercial partnership, the plan is also for them to extend the service to Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania and Ghana. Subscribers in these markets will have access to a selection of regional and local programming, according to both Econet Media and Iflix executives.

Joseph Hundah, Group CEO of Econet Media President and Andre de Wet, Regional head of iflix Africa said they are excited to collaborate and drive forward their vision for taking content to consumers in Africa.
