Telecommunications company Orange Botswana and pay-TV broadcast network Kwesé TV have announced a partnership which aims to provide its customers with premium entertainment and sports programming on their mobile devices. This is according to a report by Bizcommunity.
There has been no date set for the launch with the company only revealing that the service “will be available soon.”
According to Telecompaper, this new offering will deliver Kwesé’s sports and entertainment content through its mobile streaming service by leveraging Orange’s 4G network. This includes a collection of channels spanning sports, general entertainment, news and actuality. The content will include exclusive access to P Diddy’s Revolt TV, NBA TV, Viceland and Premier League games, to name a few.
Lepata Mafa-Nthomola, Orange Botswana’s Director of Corporate Affairs, speaking on the partnership said, “We’re delighted to introduce Kwesé’s mobile product to our subscribers as part of our efforts to deliver top quality entertainment and lifestyle services on our superfast data network. Botswana has been hungry for rich, engaging content and this partnership enables us to deliver TV into the palms of their hands.”
“This collaboration will extend our offering in Botswana where we have recently introduced our satellite TV service a few weeks ago. As a multi-platform media business, we are proud to offer our quality content to Orange subscribers on the move,” explained President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Econet Media, Joseph Hundah.
Kwesé’s mobile streaming service will be accessible to Orange subscribers through the network provider’s video data packages. Subscriptions can also be paid through Orange Money.
