The Africell group has signed a partnership agreement with UK-based Perception TVCDN to launch a mobile TV service for Africell Angola customers, scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter of 2022, Agence Ecofin reports. ‘AfriTV’ will be available at no additional cost to Africell’s Angolan mobile network users, broadcasting major linear Portuguese-language TV channels and ‘new channels programmed automatically from Portuguese-language video-on-demand (VoD) libraries and social networks’, with a seven-day catch-up TV feature. Although offered as a ‘free’ service, the report notes that AfriTV will be monetised via revenues from data usage for consumption of the TV platform’s content.

Launched in April this year as the country’s third mobile operator, Africell Angola claimed to have reached five million subscriptions by early September.
