DW looking for new partners and programming ideas at DISCOP Africa
DW’s distribution executives are in in Johannesburg, South Africa this week looking to find new ideas for Africa-oriented television programming. DW has been a trusted voice on the radio for decades in Africa and is now seeking to go deeper into the television market with programming tailored for African audiences. For the past year, DW’s flagship English channel has been available via DTH satellite in Africa.
DISCOP Africa was launched in 2008 and this year’s convention in Johannesburg, South Africa is expected to attract 2000 delegates from 70 countries. International content producers will gain insight and access into African markets and African based producers at the convention will have a platform to promote their content for international distribution.
DW has consistently been a valuable part of the African media landscape– bringing reliable news, entertainment and education to every corner of the continent. For 50 years DW has been broadcasting radio in Kiswahili and also provides news services in Hausa and Amharic. Educational radio programs like Learning by Ear shed light on social issues and help improve people’s lives. If you’re at the convention be sure to stop by and see everything DW has to offer in Africa.
