Agora Services and Côte Ouest Audiovisuel to collaborate with telecom operators to offer VoD services

Côte Ouest Audiovisuel and Agora Services Group will together develop a video on demand (VoD) platform called Butterfly.

According to a press release, “Agora Services Group and Côte Ouest understood together that the content without the tool was no more useful than the tool without the content. This is why these two experts have concluded a cooperation agreement for the creation of a VoD platform which will be provided to telecommunications operators on the African continent.”

In fact, the service will enable telecom operators to offer a video-on-demand service using the content of Côte Ouest Audiovisuel and the technical architecture implemented by Agora Services Group. The service will carry the sign of the telecommunications operator.

The platform will propose different means of payment adapted to African markets such as payment by Airtime (telephone consumption credit), Mobile Money, but also the classic payment by bank cards.
