Filmbox launches in Nigeria with VeeTee deal

African mobile video platform VeeTee will now offer eight channels from SPI’s worldwide portfolio to MTN customers in Nigeria. The VeeTee portfolio includes movies, TV series, documentary and sports channels as well as a new e-gaming channel aimed at millennials.

In addition to live TV channels, VeeTee will also provide access to Filmbox OnDemand which allows users to watch films, TV series and sports, music and lifestyle videos whenever and wherever they want.

“The launch of Filmbox channels on VeeTee’s mobile TV services is a major milestone for SPI’s African strategy. We are excited to see our audience grow in Nigeria,” commented Amit Karni, Head of Distribution Africa for SPI/Filmbox.

“This is a victory for the general African digital landscape because mobile streaming for thematic channels is here to stay and with it comes the unbundling of other amazing opportunities aimed at solving Africa’s foremost need for ‘positive empowerment’,” added Temple Obike, Founder and CEO of MTN sister company Edentak.
