Econet Media Work With Roku And Netflix To Deliver Kwese Play

Econet Media is said to have reached an advanced stage in its entry into the African streaming service with its Video On Demand (VOD) platform Kwese Play.

The company is reported to be working with Roku (for the streaming box) and Netflix (for content) to bring Kwese Play's VOD services to customers, first in South Africa and then across the continent.

Industry analysis indicates that this new venture helps Econet Media protect its DTH flank by targeting this service to customers using broadband and fibre infrastructure.

The partnership with Roku and Netflix allow Kwese Play ease of market entry; with internationally established players providing it with all the necessary gear and content plus operational support services which will enable it to achieve its objectives.
