African Movie Channel has launched its new African series channel on Wananchi’s Zuku pay-TV platform.
African Movie Channel Series (AMC Series) is a premium African entertainment channel showcasing TV soaps, comedy and drama from Nigeria, peppered with some of the best from the rest of Africa, 24 hours a day for the whole family.
This from Yinka Mayungbo, African Movie Channel’s co-founder and director: “We have a plethora of African talent bursting with creative energies and routinely churning out five-star content. This new channel is the perfect medium to showcase their fantastic works illustrating the rich African narrative. We are delighted to work in partnership with Zuku who have demonstrated a strong commitment to African programming.”
Lola Onigbogi, African Movie Channel’s co-founder and director: “AMC has long solidified itself as a major player in broadcasting Nollywood and African films across Africa. AMC Series marks a new era of unique tailored programming in Africa. AMC Series together with AMC, provide the full package of unrivalled top-tier Nollywood and African TV programming.”
Paul Healy, Chief Product & Marketing Officer for Zuku said: “This is a second first for us – we were the first TV platform to carry African Movie Channel in Africa back in 2012. AMC are a trailblazer, leading the way in a sphere that has been predominantly cultivated by international rather than domestic productions. We are excited to be furthering our partnership with AMC that translates to fresh, innovative and affordable entertainment with the launch of AMC Series on Zuku.”
