Buni TV Goes Mobile | Launches Android App With Fresh Episodes

bunitv_taglineAfrica’s video-on-demand platform Buni TV has today launched its much awaited Android app promising viewers a wide range of free content including fresh episodes of The XYZ Show’s Season 8 currently on air.
The app, built by Buni TV in partnership with Samsung also gives users the ability to create playlists, comment on and share videos on their social networks as long as they are using Android 2.3 devices and up.

According to Buni TV’s CEO Marie Lora-Mungai, “Mobile has always been at the center of Buni TV’s strategy. We started with both a web and mobile sites, and have since upgraded to a responsive site that optimizes design and speed on all mobile devices. The launch of our Android app is another step towards a better, more fluid and more comfortable video experience for our users. We’re very grateful to have received Samsung’s support and expertise in building this app, and are looking towards a long and fruitful partnership.”

The app is now live on the Samsung Store and will be available on Google play Store early next year.

Samsung App store is accessed by millions of mobile phone subscribers globally seeking to download quality Android apps for Entertainment, Education, Games, Lifestyle, Travel and Productivity among others. Kenyan Application developers on the Android platform therefore, have equal access to other global developers to showcase their solutions on the Samsung Apps store which is a gateway to global tech-preneurship, the firm said.

Samsung Electronics East Africa is not new to Kenya’s innovation scene. Apart from supporting local developers to enable them commercially deploy their applications on the popular Android platform, the firm also invests heavily into skills growth and capacity building programmes.
