The Africa Channel selects Simplestream for global SVoD service

Simplestream's App Platform will power the new service

The Africa Channel has selected Simplestream’s App Platform to power its relaunched global SVoD service, Demand Africa.

Demand Africa is available across a wide range of platforms including a new website, iOS and Android devices, TVOS and FireTV. It allows subscribers to download content for offline viewing and also offers continue watching so viewers can pick up where they left off on any device.

Simplestream’s App Platform is a fully managed, end-to-end solution to monetise premium content across devices, supporting a range of monetisation models.

Dan Finch, chief commercial officer from Simplestream commented, “It’s fantastic that we are able to assist Demand Africa to deliver their rich content offering through our App Platform. As consumer viewing habits change, Demand Africa will be well placed to understand their customers viewing habits in detail, whilst delivering them the content at a time of their choosing, across a wide range of devices and to expand coverage into new markets across the globe, reaching both the African diaspora and those keen to learn more about the world’s second largest continent.”
