“The universe works in mysterious ways. When we shot the film Amazon Prime Video had not yet entered the market. Let’s just say they arrived right on time. I am happy Africa gets to see it.
“I am also hoping they get to enjoy the film. We tried very hard with limited funds to take them on a suspenseful ride. I hope they can chill nicely in their homes and go on that ride – its a fun watch”
August 2022, Prime video officially launched in Nigeria and is actively shopping content on its platforms. The service has adopted local pricing that starts from N2300 to boost subscriptions.
Digital TV Research forecasts 15.06 million paying SVOD subscriptions in Africa by 2026, triple from the 5.11 million expected at end-2021.
From the 10 million additions, South Africa and Nigeria will each supply 2.3 million. These two will be the only countries with more than 1 million subscriptions.
With this data, it is now likely that more streamers like prime video will step into the African market and fight for a share of this market.
