Internet TV company TV2U International is to expand its African commercial ambitions by signing a licensing agreement with Africa Enterprise Media Group (AEMG), to launch and market its video content delivery platform under the brand name ‘TV2U Africa”.
The internet TV company said it will also power the branded, fully managed content platform already offered to AEMG’s internet service provider, mobile operator and content rights holder clients in South Africa.
The deal announced today stipulates that AEMG will have exclusive rights to utilise the TV2U platform and brand in South Africa and to promote them on a non-exclusive basis across the rest of Africa and the Middle East.
“After looking at all comparable solutions, TV2U was the only provider that could meet our feature specification and multi-tenanted platform requirements. Combined with TV2U’s strong heritage in the OTT space and the expertise of its team, we’re looking forward to bringing a truly next-generation OTT streaming service to millions of end-users in Africa and across the region,” said Ivan Bridgens, CEO of AEMG.
