Nigerian subscription-based streaming service OyaWatch TV has launched on the Red Bee OTT platform.
OyaWatch offers a wide variety of live and on-demand content from a range of international broadcasters and local sources and is available through applications and browsers on all major devices and smart TVs, with multiple language options and large channel packages.
The streaming service integrates with other Red Bee services, including content aggregation, metadata and automatic captioning. The name OyaWatch comes from the Yorùbá slang ‘oya,’ meaning ‘instant’ or ‘instantly,’ which is a popular expression in Nigeria.
OyaWatch is available in English, French, Hausa, Arabic, Igbo and Yorùbá and offers more than 60 channels of live news, movies, TV shows, documentaries, sports and children’s content. Packages start at N1,500 per month.
Ronaldo Minaise, CEO and founder of the company, said: “By launching OyaWatch TV, we want to make the best global and local media and entertainment experiences available to everyone in Nigeria. Through Red Bee’s OTT platform, we have built a competitive subscription service available on every device, including smartphones, which is crucial in reaching a wider audience in Nigeria.”
Steve Nylund, CEO of Red Bee, added: “OyaWatch is a pioneering service in the Nigerian media and entertainment landscape and we’re looking forward to seeing it grow in the years to come. It’s another great example of how our OTT platform offers a solid foundation for anyone looking to launch and develop a streaming service, no matter the ambition level or business idea.”
