Viewers can now also enjoy OATV content on TV2Africa, an Over the Top (OTT) platform which is built for content providers, broadcasters and communities who want to broadcast content on an internet platform. “This new development is one of the many ways in which OATV is enhancing its offerings in the ever-evolving new media world,” said CEO, Stefan Hugo, adding that as a content creator and curator, OATV continuously strives to make the stories they convey more accessible to audiences and, at the same time, increase multi-platform audience reach for their clients and other stakeholders.The partnership means that viewers have even more platform options to watch their favourite OATV shows on. The station's content manager Taleni Shimhopileni added, saying: “This is also a great opportunity to make available our locally relevant and entertaining content to the many Namibians who love OATV. The TV2Africa linear live stream and video-on-demand access (for selected OATV local shows) complements the success our digital content had on our social media platforms over the last two years.” Viewers can live stream OATV on TV2Africa.com or download the TV2Africa app (iStore and Google Play Store) to enjoy popular shows including locally produced favourites like: Today on One, The Tribe, It's a Wrap or Master Your Destiny Africa.
