Babeleye, the multilingual video content metadata platform, has been selected by AfricaXP to manage rich EPG metadata of its linear channels distributed to two of AfricaXP’s customers. Babeleye will provide total management and distribution of programming information to top TV platforms Zuku, a pan-African pay-TV platform, and WatchAfrica, which offers a premium SVoD service. AfricaXP delivers a full catalogue of African content channels via a unique cloud-based content delivery platform directly to broadcasters across the entire African Sub-Saharan region and beyond. This announcement comes as Babeleye opens a new office in South Africa, its second office on the continent and its first in sub-Saharan Africa.
“Babeleye’s wide expertise in delivering rich metadata and adapting existing formats to different EPG technologies allows us to slash operational times and satisfy the requirements of our TV platform partners,” said Craig Kelly, CEO of AfricaXP. “We wanted to work with a partner who has significant experience in the region, and the Babeleye platform also help us provide better and more customized programming information for a broad range of content, improving the end user experience.”
