African Movie Channel launches on connected TVs
The African Movie Channel (AMC) is to launch via Samsung Connected televisions and through Roku streaming media players after striking a deal with TV technology company SyncTV.
The arrangement will mean that the UK-based video-on-demand service AMC, which airs Nollywood movies including The Narrow Path, Silence Of The Gods, Arugba, Clinic Matters and Mary Slessor, significantly increases its digital distribution.
“As African Movie Channel continues to sign agreements with strategic, high-profile content partners, we are also expanding our alliances with top distribution avenues to increase the awareness of our offerings. It is important for us as representatives of Nollywood and other African motion picture houses to expand the viewership and share our distinctive entertainment,” said Lola Onigbogi, co-director and founder of African Movie Channel.
