Since early 2017 there are two new TV channels in the African audiovisual landscape: Savannah TV and Passions TV.
Passions TV, a “romantic” themed channel, featuring telenovelas and other women-targeted series, and Savannah TV a channel dedicated to African fiction (series & films), music and entertainment. Both are available on Startimes TV bouquets.
Pixagility has been in charge of their playout from its Boulogne Billancourt premises for initial launch. Pix Africa will take over directly from Ivory Coast’s Abidjan in a few weeks. Pixagility is then routing Passions TV and Savannah TV to Startimes’ headend.
