CANAL+ GROUP and iROKO are launching the iroko+ SVOD service for French-speaking Africa.
Available now on the GooglePlay store, iROKO+ is free until 1 June 2016 and users will be able to download movies and TV series as part of their subscription package. The Android app will be available across all of French Speaking Africa, bringing 1,500 hours of affordable, premium Nollywood & Télénovelas content to millions of Francophone entertainment fans.
iROKO+ has been designed to optimize data consumption and the service will be aimed at building a new mobile-only subscriber base across Francophone Africa. With over 250 million French-speakers across 30 countries in Africa, and as mobile Internet penetration continues to spread across the continent, the iroko+ Android app will cater for a significant growth market, with 165 million smartphones estimated to be in circulation before 2020.
