VOOV TV Launches A Social Media TV Platform In South Africa
Broadcast media Africa has learnt that South Africa will be getting its first-ever social media based TV platform.
According to eNCA.com, VOOV TV is debuting as the first South African social media only streaming TV channel. The platform will allow its users to stream themselves live and also be broadcasted on selected TV stations. According to ENCA.com reports, VOOV TV will launch first on DSTV.
Broadcast Media Africa (BMA) thinks that while this is a laudable innovation for the African market, the issue of data costs and slow connectivity on the continent and even in South Africa still poses a significant challenge that will affect VOOV TV business propositions.
BMA expect that the promoters of VOOV TV would have settled on a workaround to this issue, we wish them all the very best.
