Tuluntulu launches economic empowerment TV channel
24 August 2017
Tuluntulu, an African mobile content platform, has teamed up with South Africa s Rhodes Business School and Nedbank to launch a new 24/7 economic empowerment TV channel on the Tuluntulu app. Tuluntulu aims to improve the lives of the people of Africa by using relevant African content. The Tuluntulu app is free to download, with no subscriptions, is free on Wi-Fi, and uses less data ( -50MB per hour) than other streaming apps when connected to mobile networks, the company said.
The video content is being created by Rhodes University Business School (RBS), focusing on economics, commercial law, entrepreneurship, and financial planning. Funded by Nedbank, the Rhodes Business School channel aims to be an incubator to promote social enterprise, entrepreneurship, and empower people with business management skills. The Rhodes Music Radio station (RMR) is also available on the Tuluntulu app.
As a campus-based community radio station, RMR can now reach a wider audience than just Grahamstown and surrounds. Founded in 1981, RMR was the first campus based station to be licensed to broadcast legally.
