LAGOS/Nigeria: Two US-based Nigerians, Bamidele Adetayo and Suleiman Nadabo have developed a Web App, “Entertale’’ to give TV audience in Africa and the world quality experiences. Adetayo said in Abuja that “Entertale’’ was an online live TV and movie streaming services, adding that “It allows users to watch multiple live TV stations for free.”
“The story of Entertale begins due to lack for African valued TV contents to enable people connect with what are happenings and watch movies and TV shows with friends they are already connected with.
“The App which is set for launch later in the month does not require monthly subscription, and the live channels would comprise international and African TV stations,’’ Adetayo added.
Nadabo, co-founder Entertale, explained that the web service which solely focused on TV, allow users rent movies that they were only interested in watching, and users would also get notifications on what their friends were watching, follow and chat with them.
Nadabo disclosed that in the App is a feature called “Co-Play’’ which give users the options to watch movies they rented with friends irrespective of location.
“Using the App is like watching television in an alternate reality where you do not recognise any of the shows while evolving a new space that has been lacking in the African entertainment industry.
“Cord cutting’ might be getting another kin but this time it is driven with a social experience – a free service that mimics the cable box with Internet channels instead of traditional ones and cinematic experience.
“The app is still in its web versions where much of the content comes from YouTube; in its movie model cases, Entertale also makes direct content deals with big independent studios to access their latest library,”
