EBS EPG for Kwesé TV

February 8, 2017

EBS, the full-service provider of EPG data for platforms and channels worldwide, has added Econet Media’s Kwesé TV platform to their portfolio of household-name clients.

Kwesé TV launched 50+ channels in Ghana, Rwanda and Zambia on January 30th with a wide array of entertainment, news and sports. At present viewers in Ghana, Rwanda and Zambia can access Kwesé TV via Kwesé’s own satellite and decoder; Kwesé TV will be rolled out across Africa in the very near future.

The partnership with EBS enables Kwesé TV to deliver enriched metadata and images for every programme via EBS’ unique EPG and metadata management application, Pawa.

“Our objective is to give our audiences access to premium and accurate programming,” said Joseph Hundah, CEO Econet Media, “We are therefore pleased to partner with a service provider like EBS who has a similar focus. Following the launch of Kwesé in Ghana, Rwanda and Zambia, as well as the staggered approach that will be rolled out in the rest of the continent, we are looking forward to providing our viewers with a world-class viewing experience.”
