VOOV the social live streaming mobile application launched in South Africa in July this year allowing users the opportunity to live stream themselves to other VOOVers. VOOV TV launched on DStv channel 196.
This exclusive and one of its kind channel kicked off broadcasting live streams of VOOV ambassadors, in 10-minute segments. DStv customers interacted with the celebrities as the featured VJ via the app and could see their comments and virtual gifts appear on TV. Outside of these three hours, the channel has repeat loops of the live streams.
Launched in partnership with DStv, VOOV TV can be viewed on the Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Family, Access and EasyView packages. VOOV TV is set to evolve and allow ordinary South Africans to live stream themselves. This is a great platform to help aspiring stars find a voice and an audience; and for discovering the next big star.
Aletta Alberts, General Manager for Content for MultiChoice, commented: “Since the launch of DStv, we’ve always been at the forefront of digital developments – we want to continue to bring our customers the latest in television trends. We’re on the cutting edge of broadcasting here – merging an app onto our DStv platform and allowing our customers to interact with the channel in real time is true reality television.”
Makhosazana Zwane-Siguqa, Head of VOOV South Africa said, “Our brand promise is to give South Africans a platform to showcase their talents. All you need is a smartphone and the VOOV app. We’ve ensured that the channel is available on all DStv packages so that every South African can enjoy unfiltered live streaming content and maybe take a shot at fame themselves when the next phase of the channel starts.”
