Motive Television eyeing further opportunities in Africa as contract starts

Motive Television eyeing further opportunities in Africa as contract starts

Motive Television (LON:MTV) has kicked off a major project in Africa, which it hopes will open up further opportunities across the continent.

As reported at the tail end of 2013, the television sofware firm and South Africa’s Siyaya Free To Air TV had inked an agreement under which Motive will install, integrate and operate Siyaya's video-on-demand platform.

Today, Motive said the project will start with the installation and integration of Motive's software to enable Siyaya services on FreeVision, the new satellite broadcasting platform operated by state owned communications supplier Sentech.

Siyaya plans to begin commercial operations using Motive's technology this autumn, the firm said.

Alongside, Motive revealed it is currently negotiating a kit licence agreement with Skyworth of Shenzhen, People's Republic of China, a leading manufacturer that will be supplying set-top boxes to support the Siyaya satellite services.

Motive's chief executive Leonard M Fertig said: "Motive has assisted Siyaya for the past year in plans for their DTH satellite and DTT services, and looks forward to a successful launch of this major platform in South Africa. 

"We welcome the partnership with Skyworth on this project, and anticipate that Motive's progress in South Africa will serve as the gateway to further substantial opportunities across Africa."
