Kwesé Play CEO Ryan Solovei

In this episode of TechCentral, Duncan McLeod chats to Ryan Solovei, executive vice president of Econet Media and CEO of Kwesé Play, which has introduced a new streaming media service to South African consumers.

The offering, which consists of a Roku media box and accompanying services — which include Netflix, YouTube, TED, Red Bull TV and the soon-to-be-launched Kwesé TV bouquet, among others — looks set to shake up the television entertainment market in South Africa.

What are the company’s plans for the service? How does it intend competing for content rights, including sports rights? How is going to market? And how much will it cost?

All is revealed in this must-listen-to podcast.
