New service streams popular shows in Africa online

On June 30, 2014

Africa Magic Go logo(NEW YORK) —Africa Magic, Africa’s largest provider of original film and television content, launched a Hulu-like service for Africans living in the U.S.

Africa Magic Go (AMGO) offers viewers the ability to tune into Africa’s best original productions online for just $8 per month. The service offers hundreds of films and television programs, and no fewer than 250 original feature films have been commissioned for 2014.

Designed for African culture lovers, the latest films and series are available to stream 24/7 on computers with broadband connections. The easy-to-use service is commercial-free, and has a one-week free trial for new subscribers.

“With so many Africans living in the U.S., there is a great demand for programming for Africans by Africans, one that is now filled by Africa Magic GO,” said Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, regional director at Africa Magic. “Africa Magic is committed to promoting African talent and creating global platforms that make content accessible to Africans, and those following African culture, across the world.”

AMGO includes live streaming and pay-per-view of special events and reality shows. Plans are underway for new mobile apps that will make AMGO available on Apple and Android devices, as well as other devices such as ROKU and Smart TVs.

Viewers can choose from hundreds of episodes of the most popular film and TV shows in Africa, including Nigeria’s most successful soap opera, “Tinsel”, a series set in the glittering world of film production filled with intrigue, romance and deception.

Another popular option is “53 Extra,” a weekly West African entertainment show named in honor of the number of countries in the African Union.

Brand-new, never-before-seen movies are also available. From Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry, comes “Spinsters,” a racy story about three single friends with a great reality TV concept for finding Mr. Right.

“Blue Flames,” another Nollywood offering, is the story of three families in a desperate quest for wealth and fulfillment.

For movie lovers of Ghallywood, the Ghanaian film industry, there’s “Moving On,” the story of a woman who finds out her true love is cheating on her with her best friend, the same night she informs him she is carrying his baby.
