Entertainment Designed For You

Demand Africa celebrates contemporary Africa’s influence on the world. Our goal was to create the premiere global destination showcasing world-class lifestyle, travel and entertainment. A home where you can stream TV series and documentaries and explore online lifestyle communities and more. Watch, learn, laugh and connect, in-home or on-the-go.

Who we built Demand Africa for

Globally aware audiences with a passion for travel, lifestyle and an interest in new cultures.

Why we built Demand Africa

Demand Africa’s mission, like our principal cable offering The Africa Channel, is to demystify modern Africa and its people for our viewers. A digital platform where programming multicultural content is our principal focus and not a sub-category or an initiative. In today’s media, economic and global environments we feel this goal is even more critical because Africa is on the rise with a global influence spread far and wide. Demand Africa is a digital extension of our mission and will serve as a destination throughout the world, both as a connection to the continent and an introduction to new voices reflective of Africa’s rich and diverse culture.

Our intent is to not only create the go-to destination for all things Africa, but to showcase the diverse, modern and upwardly mobile Africa and help correct the global conversation and perception of the continent in the U.S. and the world.

What’s on Demand Africa

The subscription (SVOD) streaming video service hosts hundreds of hours of original and acquired lifestyle content, scripted TV series and movies. In addition to premium HD programming, Demand Africa features free access to online short form videos, thousands of African and Caribbean inspired recipes, travel and lifestyle blogs and more, highlighting content across the African diaspora.

Shows on Demand Africa span food (“Africa on a Plate,” “DiYaWela”), travel (“TOP,” “30 Min. Tour”), kids and family (“Siyaya”), music (“Prince! Behind the Symbol,” “Africa Soundstage”), culture (“Care for Color,” “African Masters”) and comedy (“Africa Laughs”).

While many of the shows have previously aired on the Africa Channel, Demand Africa includes exclusive content such as “XOA (Xtreme Outdoor Africa),” “The Man Cave,” “Shades of You” and “Minjiba Entertains” as well as a lineup of original content created by TAC Studios and newly acquired movie titles.
