Having conquered the African VOD market and grown into the world’s largest online distributor of African content, iROKO has launched a global content distribution and licensing division, iROKO Global.

The London-based iROKO Global team will partner with media outlets across the world to license the company’s extensive library of films and TV series from Nigeria’s popular Nollywood industry, offering 1,500 titles and 3,000 hours of programming.

The move follows on the heels of iROKO’s successful move into linear TV, with the debut of two channels on Africa’s StarTimes pay-TV platform earlier this year.
