Rushlake Media GmbH, a leading multi-platform network, is excited to announce the launch of its TidPix FAST channel for African content on a number of platforms across the North American market and beyond.
TidPix is a 24/7 leading streaming brand for authentically African content from the continent’s most exciting filmmakers. The channel is entirely curated and managed by the Rushlake Media Nairobi team with Edward Mulandi as Lead Channel Manager.
With premium feature films like Kafa Coh (Uganda), Bangarang (Kenya) and Vindictive (Nigeria) as well as popular series like Nairobi Law (Kenya) and All That Glitters (Ghana), catering to an English-speaking audience, this new deal will take authentic African stories to a massive new market in North America and beyond.
The Lead Channel Manager Edward Mulandi speaking of the launch said; “Launching TidPix has been a rewarding challenge and has proven to be a fantastic opportunity to offer a genuinely African channel for all FAST consumers. FAST promises great value for those looking to watch brilliant, exciting and authentic African films without a significant barrier to entry and ease of access. TidPix fulfills that mandate by acquiring and curating these modern African classics and hidden gems with its vibrant soul, powered by a passionate Nairobi-based team who seek to bring Authentically African Stories to the World.”
With these platform deals, brokered by Geoff Clark of acTVe in Hollywood, Rushlake Media further strengthens its position as the home for entertaining African content globally and makes another leap in bringing African stories to the world.
The Channel’s Founder and Managing Director Philipp Hoffman elaborated on the company’s multi-platform-strategy where TidPix plays a paramount role saying;“Since we launched TidPix on Africa Day in 2020, it became one of the go-to destinations for audiences interested in authentically African content. Bringing the channel to the global FAST market now, allows even broader audiences to enjoy African content and opens up additional monetization for the filmmakers and streamers we partner with.”
TidPix has launched or is currently in the process of launching on the following platforms: VIDAA, TCL, FreeMovies+, and RlaxxTV with six additional platforms to be announced over the coming weeks.
