Africa’s fastest-growing video-on-demand and live TV platform, Wi-flix has taken a monumental stride – announcing the launch of its services in Nigeria for customers on the MTN Network.
After a successful launch and uptake in Kenya and Ghana, the streaming service is now available to consumers in Africa’s biggest economy – offering 360-degree entertainment to Nigerian audiences.
The partnership offers MTN subscribers unlimited access with daily, weekly and monthly data packages starting from as low as 50 Naira via MTN airtime billing.
Commenting on the launch in Nigeria, Co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer of Wi-flix, Louis Manu said, “Today is truly an exciting day for us at Wi-Flix. Over the last 6 months, we have worked tirelessly, looking forward to this day – when we open our services to the Nigerian market. Nigeria is very special to us. Firstly, it is home to the world’s second-biggest movie industry, Nollywood. Secondly, Nigerians understand and embrace authentic African content and so we do not doubt that they will fall in love with the wide array of content we have especially for them on Wi-flix.”
He continued, “We’ve created a streaming experience that is both elevated and inclusive. In our experience, African viewers want more representative content curated from their rich culture and narrative – content they can relate to. And that has been our number one priority. We are delighted that Wi-flix has been widely accepted across the continent.
For our audience in Nigeria, you can now enjoy the best African and foreign movie titles, TV shows, sports and variety anytime, anywhere and on any device,” he concluded.
Commenting on the service, Srinivas Rao, Chief Digital Services Officer said “For us at MTN, we believe in the power of collaboration to deliver superior value to our customers. Our customers are at the heart of our partnership decisions. Nigerians love quality entertainment, which is what Wi-flix offers in abundance, and this partnership will make such content available at an affordable price irrespective of earning power.”
Country Director for Wi-flix Nigeria, Daniel Onwuka in his comments said, “Access to premium content at affordable price points is exactly what many Nigerians are looking for. Subscribers to the Wi-flix service can access thousands of hours of tailor-made content through a daily Unlimited Access Only package for just N50 or an Unlimited Access + Data Bundle of 250MB for N100 only.
There are also packages for weekly and monthly subscriptions ensuring that the service is accessible to all customer segments.
To subscribe, consumers are encouraged to sign-up online at www.wi-flix.com or dial the shortcode 13013 on MTN to subscribe to their preferred package.
