Candice Fangueiro, Showmax’s head of content for Africa, said: “We’ve deliberately ramped up our emphasis on local content. If you look at something like the first-view metric, which asks what’s the first show someone watches after signing up for Showmax under the assumption this is probably what convinced them to join, three out of the top five first-view pieces of content are now local.”
