Viu, an entertainment streaming service, has introduced popular series Yizo Yizo on South African screens. As part of its license deal with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), Viu has obtained exclusive digital rights to a collection of South Africa’s favorite shows from the public broadcaster’s catalogue, including the highly popular Yizo Yizo, and other series like: The Docket, Diamond City, and Emoyeni.
A revolutionary, highly vibrant series in South Africa’s entertainment history, Yizo Yizo offers a look into the lives of members of a township community in Daveyton, and the fictional Supatsela High School.
Twenty years since its introduction on South African screens, Yizo Yizo’s influence on local content models and stories is apparent.
The Country Manager of Viu South Africa, Ryan Solovei, stated, “Yizo Yizo’s arrival on Viu demonstrates the app’s commitment to offer South Africans the best shows on the digital and on-demand platform. We are dedicated to broaden access to South Africa’s best local content, and in time, co-produce original local content.”
All three seasons of Yizo Yizo will be accessible as part of Viu’s Premium offering, with a new season released every month from April. Viu can be accessed for free on the App Store and Google Play.
