" VOD TO THE RESCUE" by JOVI BABS...



Recently I have noticed a flurry of Video on demand services that have popped up over the last few years in Nigeria. From the establishment of Iroko TV by a British Nigerian returnee Jason Njoku a lot of players like Dobox, Buni TV and Afrinolly have come into the game. Even africa magic the nollywood TV station on DSTV has gotten into the act though their VODoffering is only accesible outside Africa.
All this is a positive development and has opened up another avenue for monetization for visual content producers where there has been a slowdown in the market. Many of the producers and Alaba marketers have gone out of business due to the slow DVD sales in the market (why buy or rent when you can watch it for free on africa magic, a major reason many producers are refusing to sell their works to them) and the VOD companies are proving to be the only avenue of monetization for many producers.
There are impediments in the VOD industry most especially the matter of data subscription in a country where internet connection is more expensive than in the west and the fact that most people browse on phones. But the impediments are being addressed as internet costs are coming down and many people are subscribing to the internet. (65 million at the last count in 2013)
