A new platform, known as AfriDeo, has announced its entry into the Nigerian online streaming industry, with the firm streaming African news, series, comedy, movies and music videos via web and mobile.
According to AfriDeo, it claims to be the first of its kind for Africa, in that it is an online information and entertainment destination for Africans worldwide, providing on-demand access to video content that matters.
According to founder Obasi Oluchukwu, the startup’s game plan is to provide a hub for all the clips emanating from across Africa and the diaspora. He said the platform aims to address the inconvenience of discovering good clips to watch and help grow African content reach.
“Today there exists no recognized destination to help viewers passionate about Africa to discover easily local content that fit their interest,” he told Disrupt Africa.
“The platform is presenting a better access point to African content streaming online. AfriDeo is bringing viewers the easy way to discover the content relevant to their interest.”
AfriDeo works on an advert-supported freemium model, with the service available to watch across multiple platforms, such as desktop, laptop, smartphones and tablets.
The entrance of AfriDeo is expected to further enshrine competition in the already saturated market, thereby increasing the quality of services Nigerians are expected to get as the year progresses when it comes to online streaming of content.
