Johannesburg, november 16th - THE CANAL+ Group announces the launch of THEMA DISTRIBUTION, a new business activity of CANAL+ INTERNATIONAL, in charge of the distribution and sale of audiovisual content in Africa and internationally.
The creation of THEMA DISTRIBUTION is part of the Group’s strategy to develop African content on all media, and in particular content produced or acquired by Group channels. Indeed, CANAL+ channels and A+ in Africa are playing a key role in the African production and co‑production of a number of programs — including movies, African TV series and short comedy TV series — that THEMA DISTRIBUTION will now spread throughout the continent and beyond.
THEMA DISTRIBUTION therefore has a rich and varied catalog of content produced or co‑produced by CANAL+ and A+ at its disposal, as well as plenty of acquisitions. The catalog currently consists of over 800 hours of shows and content of all genres, from Africa and abroad, of high quality and reputation, such as:
Thanks to this attractive catalog, African channels — but also broadcasters in France and French overseas territories — will have access to a new source of quality content.
With the launch of THEMA DISTRIBUTION, the CANAL+ Group is reinforcing its position as a major player in the African audiovisual landscape while participating more specifically in the promotion of high‑quality African productions.
ABOUT CANAL+ IN AFRICA For over 25 years, CANAL+ is present in more than 25 countries in Africa, with 13 subsidiaries and over 50 partners and distributors. Thanks to its LES BOUQUETS CANAL+ packages, (with over 200 channels, including radio and services), the Group is the first pay-tv operator in French-speaking Africa. CANAL+ screens 17 premium channels for the African continent and has launched A+, the African TV series channel, NOLLYWOOD TV, NOLLYWOOD TV EPIC and NOVELAS TV.
