August 10, 2017

Play has relaunched the entire SPI’s TV line-up from Nigeria’s rebranded Consat platform including FILMBOX. Play has also relaunched two sports channels: FIGHTBOX – a 24/7 martial arts network with live broadcast of international MMA events and other TV programming covering more than thirty combat sport disciplines. The second sports channel is FAST&FUNBOX which features coverage of international shows and competitions in such disciplines as car racing (Formula One), motorcross, snowboarding, sailing and many more.

Other channels in the Play line-up include DOCUBOX offering the best documentary films on nature, science and human civilization, FASHIONBOX – a worldwide TV channel devoted to fashion trends, top designers and shopping, 360TUNEBOX – an international music channel and GAMETOON with e-sports and interactive games. While Play is available in Nigeria and Ghana, the line-up in Ghana also includes EROX, an adult erotic channel.

“This most recent relaunch of our channels by Play in Nigeria clearly demonstrates the SPI’s ability to deliver unique and top quality content that viewers in the West Africa region find attractive” – said Amit Karni, SPI’s Head of Distribution Africa. “We truly appreciate Play’s committment to rebrand Consat and relaunch our channels as part of the new service,” Mr. Karni added.
“Play, formerly known as Consat, has rebranded and this has made way for more exciting channels on our television platform. Play is being positioned as a youth-friendly brand which is playing in a league that has been recognized as highly competitive, a league with endless opportunities. Play focuses on delivering content and world class channels for both domestic and global audience. This is one of the reasons why we have launched the SPI’s channels,” said Funmi Adenaike, General Manager at Play.
