South Africa’s Wabona, a video on demand service start-up today announced a $5.99 monthly subscription service for its subscribers and a new plan to get new West African movies on its platform.
The co-founders, Simukayi Mukuna and Simbarashe Mabasha said, “We are excited to announce that Wabona is now a monthly subscription service. For US$5.99/month you will get a monthly subscription to watch great African TV shows and films on Wabona.”
This comes days after Google’s video service YouTube also discussed paid subscription late March.
According to the co-founders, those who are currently signed up to Wabona will get a one week free service. Wabona will also be releasing new films from West Africa.
They added that users who bought Wabona Credit Vouchers early need not worry as the vouchers will be converted to monthly subscriptions equal to the amount of the vouchers. They have also launched a new look website and area adding changes bit by bit and welcome user feedback.
Wabona is based Cape Town and has over 500 hours of video available in their catalogue. You can read more about them here.
