Africast TV has turned to NeuLion, the company that helped IPTV network KyLinTV become a reality, to launch the first global African Consumer Broadcast Network.
Scheduled to debut next month, the network will offer more than 30 television channels, with more to be added later.
Using NeuLion's IPTV platform and broadband modem, Africast will deliver a variety of African programming directly to subscription and pay-for-view consumers anywhere in the world. The service will aggregate major television channels from Africa and provide video on demand of popular African programs.
Africast's target audience includes millions of Africans living in the United States, Europe, Canada and elsewhere.
