South Africa: PrideTV has launched as South Africa's first gay video streaming service

Digital Content

PrideTV.co.za charges R79 per month for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) films and TV shows, or R790 per year (meaning two months free).

PrideTV says the streaming service, now available in South Africa and across sub-Saharan Africa, will reverse the trend to restrict access to LGBT themes by South African and African broadcasters where "homophobic and transphobic viewer complaints and repressive censorship laws across the continent, devastate diversity".

The service that launched with 200 content titles, requires a credit card with some current account and debit cards also accepted. People who don't have or don't want to use a card will be able to pay using cellphone airtime.
