NAIROBI: Industry leader Safaricom has signed a distribution agreement with Econet Media’s Kwesé TV, Africa's newest multi-platform Pay TV network, to deliver premium video content to Kenyan consumers.

Kenyan consumers have been early adopters when it comes to digital content, and Safaricom has consistently led the charge in the communications industry with innovative products and services. The partnership with Kwesé TV extends Safaricom’s digital services offered to its subscribers.

Kwesé’s TV content showcases some of the best in sports and entertainment, including exclusives like NBA basketball, Revolt TV and VICELAND, as well as live coverage of English Premier League and Brazilian football matches, as well as lifestyle and music shows.

Commenting on the agreement, Sylvia Mulinge, Director - Consumer Business, Safaricom said; “Our aim is to enhance our customer experience and deliver solutions that meet their unique needs.

“Video content is the future of mobile and our partnership with Kwese will enable us to deliver some of the best international and local video content.

“This is a powerful partnership, which will greatly benefit our customers and have a positive impact on the local industry.” 

Econet Media CEO Joseph Hundah added; "We are seeing increasing integration across our related industries in telecommunications and media.

“Through our partnership, we will be able to leverage our collective strengths to give customers a world-class video service through the fastest network in Kenya.

“We are excited by the potential that mobile TV offers and look forward to working with Safaricom to deliver our content into the hands of even more Kenyans.”
