Seeafrika deploys RGB to take African OTT to Europe

Seeafrika, provider of the Pan-African bouquet, has deployed the solutions of multiscreen video delivery provider, RGB Network, to facilitate the delivery of its over-the-top (OTT) video services across Europe. Seeafrika plans to roll out 30 broadcast channels to European subscribers in the initial stage of its deployment.

While its OTT services predominantly aim for viewers using popular Android and iOS-based devices, RGB’s combined TransAct solution will enable the operator to deliver video to any IP-enabled device in the future as Seeafrika’s subscription base grows.

“In Europe the current offering of African TV channels available to view, whether via satellite or IPTV, is limited to roughly 100,000 viewers – yet there is an estimated population of four million people on the continent who will be interested in accessing specific, local African content from their homes on the continent,” said Issa salifou dit Saley, President of Seeafrika. “We needed an intelligent and flexible solution to make our vision a reality, and RGB’s package does just that.”
