Popular award winning media outfit, EbonyLife TV has proudly announced that from August 1, 2018, they will be broadcasting on the StarTimes.
StarTimes is a leading multinational media company with a strong presence in Africa, operating in 30 countries and with over 10 million subscribers.
The partnership with StarTimes is a bid to provide premium, homegrown content to a larger audience across Africa. In addition to the expansion of its linear television audience, EbonyLife has launched a global, digital video-on-demand (VoD) service, EbonyLife ON, that allows Nigerian subscribers, who cannot afford expensive satellite TV, to watch its high-quality content for as little as N500 per month. Viewers in the diaspora have already been accessing the service for $2.99 per month.
Mo Abudu, CEO of EbonyLife TV is thrilled about the global expansion.
In her words:
“This is an exciting time for us. StarTimes is a force to be reckoned with in Africa. It is a privilege for EbonyLife to have an additional home with the network. Together with the global reach of EbonyLife ON, we will have the potential for millions of more people to enjoy our gripping dramas, riveting talk and fun entertainment “.
A lot of people have commended this move, sending their heartfelt good wishes to the owner and management of Ebonylife TV.
