Africast TV will use NeuLion's IPTV-service platform to launch its global African Consumer Broadcast Network in December.
The programmer said the service will expand to more than 30 channels in the next few months. It will aggregate major television channels from Africa and offer video-on-demand of popular African programs.
“The amount and variety of quality content available from Africa is huge,” NeuLion executive vice president and cofounder Chris Wagner said in a prepared statement. “NeuLion and Africast have put it all in one place to make it easy for consumers to find and enjoy their program selections.”
