Kwesé Play, the cutting-edge internet protocol television (IPTV) service from Kwesé, has been launched in Ghana.
The launch of the Kwesé Play video streaming service, which is delivered on high speed data networks in particular fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), brings the best in on-demand and live TV content to market.
This extends Kwesé’s product offering in Ghana and introduces yet another gateway of unlimited entertainment for families to enjoy.
The launch of Kwesé Play is perfectly timed to meet current trends which have shown a move towards over-the-top (OTT) services, particularly among viewers looking for diversity and choice. Video-on-demand services and streaming content over the internet utilising fibre networks has grown in popularity across the continent, and Ghana is no different.
The Kwesé Play experience promises to be slicker and faster than anything currently available on the African continent. This is because Kwesé will leverage Africa’s largest fibre network, available through sister company Liquid Telecom. Liquid Telecom also holds leading-edge 4G and 5G LTE spectrum capability configured to carry video content.
Kwesé Play is a leading edge, RokuTM-powered streaming service which allows viewers to stream the world’s best video content using the internet. Thanks to strategic partnerships with the world’s leading VOD content providers, including Kwesé iflix, YouTube, TED and RedBull TV – Kwesé Play introduces the most diverse VOD content offering into market.
Kwesé Play will launch with over 200 streaming channels delivered on a single platform, with many more lined up to launch over the coming months.
The partnership between the two entities will see Kwesé Play devices bundled with Vodafone’s fixed broadband home internet packages to enable single billing for most subscription-based content available through the service.
