PrideTV Gives TVs New Lease of Life

Televisions everywhere now have a new lease of life thanks to PrideTV.

Africa’s only LGBTQ video-on-demand (VOD) channel is now enabled for Chromecast meaning viewers can use their mobile devices and the TVs they already own to stream PrideTV’s extensive content selection.

“As long as it can take an HDMI cable, that old TV in the corner can be dusted off and brought back into service as a viable source of quality entertainment,” says Joanne Raphael Katz, PrideTV’s spokesperson.

This latest development is sure to further boost the rapid adoption of Africa’s LGBTQ VOD channel by the continent’s mobile and desktop Internet users.

Ms Raphael Katz explained that Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI ports of TVs. Simply use your mobile device and the TV you already own to stream your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, games and more. Chromecast works with iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop, and Chromebook.

PrideTV’s viewing and hardware options are clearly expanding. The channel recently launched a second tier of streaming video content to cater for its growing audience. Dubbed “Freemium”, the new viewing option coincided with the channel’s one-year anniversary and offers a no subscription, no commitment promise that simultaneously delivers a high-quality VOD viewing experience.

This innovation means there are now two content tiers on the site. “In Freemium, we have gathered the best of the web content to offer the community more, free of charge. In Premium, we have a subscription-based service at an affordable $5,50 per month with hundreds of titles to enjoy anytime, anywhere and on any device,” explains Ms Raphael Katz.

“As Africa’s flagship LGBTQ entertainment channel, PrideTV has a responsibility to innovate in the LGBTQ viewing space. We promised constant technological innovation and becoming Chromecast-enabled so soon after our launch proves we keep our promises,” concludes Ms Raphael Katz.
