Video streaming service iflix will launch a news channel next month.
From September 3, iflix will air a 24-hour news channel on its platform, which will focus on broadcasting worldwide news stories from various reliable sources.
The SVoD company has partnered with other news channels in order to deliver this content. These channels include CNN, Al Jazeera, Deutsche Welle, CGTN and CCTV 4.
Speaking about the channel, iflix CEO Mark Britt said: “Audiences today, particularly the rapidly growing youth segments, want immediate access to the stories and events that are shaping the world around them.
“Through iflix news, we are working with many of world’s most trusted and reputable news sources, to deliver timely, comprehensive stories and current affairs to customers with an exceptional user experience, completely on their own terms.”
Presently, iflix operates in more than 20 countries and is in partnership with about 220 studios and distributors internationally. In 2017, it launched in Nigeria, three years after it began operations in Malaysia.
