MwareTV offers its services to African telcos and Internet service providers
MwareTV, a cloud-based platform, has recently launched an end-to-end TV solution to telco operators and Internet service providers (ISPs) in Africa. The solution includes approximately 100 channels of African content and is customisable to represent each operator identity.
The service is based around a ‘pay as you develop’ concept that means there are no high up-front costs, according to the company. This allows subscription fees to be kept low, giving new services the opportunity to achieve market traction quickly. Also, representatives from the enterprise affirms that the services are able to bring the service to air with fast deployment of only four weeks expected to be the norm.
As well as being offered as an OTT service to mobile and fixed network customers, telcos also have the option to use the platform for an IPTV offering. Service providers can also select content from a wide variety of TV genres, including news, sport, entertainment, movies and faith.
Sander Kerstens, CEO of MwareTV, comments: “At a time when Africa’s telco and streaming services are undergoing sustained expansion, MwareTV is able to provide a comprehensive end-to-end solution that provides a remarkable range of content to an ever-growing customer base. Developed to utilise existing infrastructure and allow viewers to watch TV on the device of their choice, it’s a genuine ‘plug and play solution’ without parallel in Africa at present. Underlining the appeal of the service, we are already in advanced talks with several major telcos and ISPs about deployments and expect to reveal details of the first few customers in the coming months.”
