Safaricom, China’s StarTimes partner to broadcast AFCON matches on mobile devices

Addis Ababa, January 24, 2024 (FBC) – Kenya’s mobile service provider Safaricom and Chinese pay television company StarTimes on Tuesday announced a partnership to broadcast African Cup of Nations (AFCON) games on mobile devices for the tournament, which is now taking place in Cote d’Ivoire and will end on Feb. 11.

Chief Executive Officer of Safaricom Peter Ndegwa said that under the agreement, the mobile firm has introduced data bundles to enable viewers to watch AFCON from StarTimes, which acquired the broadcast rights for English- and Portuguese-speaking countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

“This partnership will ensure unlimited internet connections, and all access to the matches and other interesting content at a click of a button on a smartphone,” Ndegwa said in a statement released in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya.

He added that under the deal, StarTimes will ensure that all AFCON games are streamed live on the “StarTimes ON Mobile App,” making it easier for football fans to watch games from their mobile devices, as reported by Xinhua.
