New Streaming Service, Huawei Video, Launches In South Africa
The subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service, Huawei Video, has launched in South Africa.
The platform offers 10 000 hours of content and 30 million short clips and is now actively looking for local South African content to add to its service.
Huawei Video joins a list of locally available streaming services that are all competing for a small but growing consumer base of people with mobile devices and the capability to pay for data and subscriptions to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, MultiChoice's Showmax and DStv Now, DEOD, PCCW Media's VIU, VodacomVideo Play, Acorn TV and Apple TV+.
At the end of December, Cell C black became the latest SVOD service in South Africa to shut down after billions were invested only to result in disappointing user and subscriber numbers.
The Chinese manufacturer rolled out Huawei Video in Europe and the Middle East on its mobile devices and now offers South Africans video streaming content ranging from TV shows and films to news, documentaries and sports. Huawei Video says that it will add new titles on a weekly basis.
Likun Zhao, the Vice President of Huawei's Consumer Business Group for Africa and the Middle East also confirmed that it is looking to include local South African content on its platform that will resonate with the South African market.
