African Movie Channel

(AMC Movies)

...Distinctly African

African Movie Channel (AMC) is a 24-hour linear African movies and series channel offered on various TV platforms across the African continent and beyond.

It’s the world’s first global channel dedicated to showing only the best movies and series from the second largest motion picture industry in the world - Nigeria’s Nollywood, and the best from the rest of Africa.

African Movie Channel is best channel of its kind, because over the years, AMC has built up significant experience from identifying desirable content, and has invaluable access to popular and compelling African content that resonates with its audiences.

The channel launched on 1st May 2011, and plays out of the UK, with AMC’s technical partners, Advanced Broadcast Services (ABS) in London providing a fully managed playout service of the 24hour channel; ABS are one of the largest playout and TV facilities companies in Europe.

African Movie Channel is the fastest growing channel in Africa, and has quickly become one of the most popular channels in Africa, already available in more than 5 million homes across several African countries.

Notable TV platforms carrying African Movie Channel include StarTimes in Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, Burundi and Rwanda; StarSat in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa; Zuku in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and Zambia; Azam TV in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda; Montage Cable Network in Nigeria; and Bamba TV in Kenya.

Mobile TV and Siyaya’s Freevision/MYTV both in South Africa will launch before the end of Q4 2015, with AMC in their channel line-ups. Launch on TV platforms in the Caribbean and the USA are in the pipeline.

The channel is wholly owned by African Movie Channel Limited UK.
