Content Connect Africa is a privately owned new media and content player based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Capitalising on the many years of experience in the African entertainment industry of its founding partners, the company has quickly established itself as both a content aggregator and content provider of on-portal and off-portal localised content to mobile operators and third-party clients throughout the continent.
Rights and licenses to an array of international products and services that have an African value proposition have been acquired, and include music, entertainment, lifestyle, sports, news and games content. In addition the company has established itself as a reliable creator and provider of multiple mobile delivery protocols.
With a view to helping bridge the Digital Divide for the vast number of new media users throughout Africa, the company is constantly developing entertainment services that reflect and fit with the cultural values and unique nature of this emerging market.
