The South African company MultiChoice, the leading multi-channel and multi-platform digital television operator across the African continent has launched the “Hulu” of Africa to the United States market. “Africa Magic GO” offers the latest in African films and television series.
There is a growing interest in stories from Africa told from an African perspective.
Given the limited amount of African content available, Africa Magic GO (AMGO) provides audiences with great programming from across the continent. It also gives Americans the opportunity to see African culture and enjoy great shows.
With shows like “53 Extra” for instance, it’s easy to mistake it for any popular American entertainment show, as it’s all about the showbiz industry in Africa. It showcases the latest in music, movies and fashion, red carpet events across the continent and of course celebrity gossip.
The United States is home to millions of Africans and AMGO, will be able to provide a service that resonates with Africans regardless of their geographical location. More and more, Africans living in the United States want entertainment that reflects a world relevant to them. Africa Magic is at the forefront of Africa’s booming and vibrant television entertainment industry and the focus of AMGO content is on genres and human stories. Whether drama, comedy, grief, happiness or respect, its content resonates with the human spirit. The service will carry content that is exclusively from Africa and will not include mainstream movies and TV shows from America. Examples of shows and programming offered by African Magic GO:
*Designing Africa: A reality show that showcases designers from seven countries, including Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Senegal, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia.
*Glam Report: A talk show about fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
