South African non-governmental organisation AfriForum has launched an Afrikaans streaming platform called AfriForumTV.
The service was established to broaden the AfriForum community as a gathering place for online entertainment to support the Afrikaans community and establish a new voice in the media world.
It will enable subscribers to stream content in various genres, ranging from entertainment to news, current affairs, school sports, reality and lifestyle programmes, podcasts and children’s entertainment.
Kallie Kriel, CEO of AfriForum, said: “The creation of AfriForumTV is a logical next step towards AfriForum and the solidarity movement’s goal of establishing community self-reliance and independent institutions in a wide range of areas in life. AfriForumTV currently offers an independent platform for new voices to convey a variety of messages and offer a wider choice to viewers.
“The time is now ripe for AfriForumTV, as the new trend among viewers is to choose when and what they want to watch and during the Covid-19 restrictions there was a greater tendency to stream content online.
“AfriForum’s production houses have already produced numerous quality entertainment series, current affairs programmes, children’s programmes and documentaries, which ensures that AfriForumTV can now be kicked off with a solid programme offering while new content will be produced throughout and a platform will be offered to outside producers.”
The AfriForumTV app is available on Google Playstore and will be available from the App Store soon.
