White Label FAST Channel provider adds African channels to offer

FAST Channels TV, a leading white label OTT platform, has just added nine new FAST channels from AfroLand TV to its offer. All told, the platform now reckons to have in excess of 200 FAST channels and around 43 partner platforms. In total, its pan-African channel offering now encompasses 11 services including ROK.

AfroLandTV was launched with backing from a Comcast NBC Universal accelerator programme and is also available on platforms such as Xumo, Plex and Rakuten TV. Its ambition is to be “the Pluto TV of black entertainment”, by offering channels that cover everything from Nollywood to African music to comedy and family content.

FAST Channels TV has pivoted strongly towards FAST channels as the market has exploded in recent times. This month alone, it has added a slate of Christmas channels and provided channels to the likes of Samsung TV Plus and Carbon TV.
