“We are producing 19 original titles that you have not seen anywhere else before and this is something that is very new. We have international content partners like Sony, Universal, HBO that we are in contact with to help with international content. However, the drive is to develop an inventory of original content from Africa not just Nigeria. We are looking at content from South Africa, Ghana, Uganda and Kenya.” Akintunde Marinho, Co-Founder Arcadia Premium TV shared.
In a bid to create world class content, Arcadia Premium TV has been on an exciting process of working, re-working and executing effective strategies aimed at providing amazing entertainment without sacrificing on quality. One of which is, developing exclusive rights to some of the world’s most celebrated films.
“When it comes to collaborations, we are always open to it. There’s always going to be consistency in the quality of shows we air. Although we had to change the names of some of the shows we were airing on our web portal because they didn’t really fit television style, but the theme and quality remains.” Olamide Yousuph Chief Operations Officer, added.
