Buni TV , one of Africa’s leading video-on-demand platforms, announced today that it had reached 1 million views, with 60% of the total traffic from from Africa, and 22% from North America and Europe.
Buni TV Founder and CEO Marie Lora-Mungai said,“We are thrilled to report these numbers. One million views is a big milestone for Buni TV and an impressive number for an African start-up to reach in just 9 months.”
Moreover, 33% of Buni TV’s total traffic – and 77% of new visits – originated from mobile devices, validating the platform’s bet to strongly target mobile users.
The platform, which makes top-quality African content available for African and diapora audiences on the web and on mobile, launched in April 2012.
