The Nollywood Genre Now Available on Major Digital Platforms
New York Based African Entertainment Company Paves Way For African movies and Films To Go Mainstream
By: Black Speech Media Group
With more than 50,000 Nollywood titles on the Black Speech Media Group platform, the two companies proposed a plan that would build a landing page and digital channel on most of the major digital platforms, such as iTunes, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. The first batch of titles are available on Amazon Prime and iTunes and have already gone live in six territories:
The Nigerian Film industry,"Nollywood"
“iTunes was the first to help us establish a digital presence for Nollywood, a genre that didn’t exist on any of the major digital platforms”, says Autonomous Entertainment CEO Cedric Beasley.
“Now that we have established Nollywood as a genre with iTunes and Amazon, we are negotiating the addition of this genre across other platforms, such as Hulu, Xbox, Verizon/Redbox, Sony PlayStation, etc.” added Timothy Kublenu, CEO of Black Speech Media Group. “It is our hope that our company will serve as a conduit whereby more producers and film makers can easily make available their films to a larger and global audience.”
A few of Black Speech Media Group’s classic and recent titles have gone live and can be found for purchase or rent on both iTunes and Amazon Prime. African producers and film makers who are looking to sell and promote their movies on these platforms can contact Black Speech Media Group at email@example.com for more information.
