TalkTalk launches TV Suite "African TV boost"

TalkTalk, Britain’s fastest growing TV service has launched a new suite of African TV channels, bringing hit shows from Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana and Uganda to its one million TV customers.

The new African TV Boost will include eight channels - Nollywood Movies, EbonyLife TV, Soundcity, Channels, Silverbird, Citizen, Metro TV and Bukedde.

The package will bring viewers a variety of Nollywood movies, 24-hour news, music, fashion, talk shows and lifestyle programmes for £10 a month on a monthly basis with no ongoing commitment.

The Boost builds on the success of TalkTalk TV’s existing world TV packages, which offers viewers popular Bollywood, Arabic, Afrikaans and Japanese channels.

Tristia Harrison, Managing Director for Consumer at TalkTalk said: “YouView from TalkTalk is going from strength to strength every day and this new Boost is a great addition. We’re pleased to be extending our partnership with THEMA to be able to offer TalkTalk homes a wealth of fantastic family entertainment from across the world”.
TalkTalk will work in partnership with THEMA to provide the service. THEMA aggregates foreign TV channels into TV bouquets targeted to Diaspora communities.

The company provides content, as well as legal, technical and marketing expertise. THEMA clients are major pay-TV platforms in Europe, Asia and North America.
