Trace TV buys pan-African VOD platform Buni.tv

Trace TV has announced the acquisition of pan-African VOD service Buni.tv, in preparation for the launch of its own VOD platform Trace Play, slated for later this year.

Previously part of pan-African studio Restless Global, Buni.tv was launched in 2012 as one of the first VOD platforms to focus on the African market. Today it’s one of the three largest VOD services on the continent.

“Trace and Buni.tv share the same strategic vision in that we believe that VOD is the future of television,” says Trace CEO Olivier Laouchez. “We also share the same analysis that the success of any VOD service in Africa will depend on whether it can source and offer high quality original African content.”
