AMC Series signs StarTimes carriage
May 1, 2015
African Movie Channel Series (AMC Series) has launched on the StarTimes DTT and StarSat DTH African television platforms.
AMC Series is an African entertainment channel showcasing the best and award-winning TV soaps, comedy and drama from Nigeria, peppered with some of the best series from all over Africa, 24 hours a day for the whole family.
The carriage agreement allows StarTimes’ 5 million subscribers across 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa enjoy the 24-hour linear channel for the first time. This second channel from AMC complements the already popular African Movie Channel that has been on the StarTimes DTT and StarSat DTH platforms since 2012.
Yvonne Dublin-Green, AMC’s Channel Manager in London commented: “AMC Series is a pioneering new channel that will satisfy the growing appetite for African TV serial content. Nollywood movies are already a proven hit worldwide and a new channel providing exclusively African TV series content was a natural progression for us”.
