SmartVOD launches Aflix


SmartVOD by Vonetize, in partnership with local technology companies, has launched what is being referred to as Africa’s first over-the-top (OTT) Hollywood premium service – Aflix by SmartVOD.

The service offers 2,000 plus hours of content, including new releases from major Hollywood studios, kids content, sports, TV series, lifestyle, nature and science, music, Bollywood, telenovelas and more.

Aflix includes an in-app billing solution and pre-paid payment services allowing users to acquire vouchers at retail stores, which can then be used to redeem content bundles inside the Afilx app.

In 2015, SmartVOD plans to expand across Africa with LG, Toshiba, Samsung Smart TVs, as well as set-top boxes.
