Cell C has secured the streaming rights for 21st Century Fox TV channels in South Africa.
The deal also includes Fox+, the studio’s video streaming service. This will feature shows like the Walking Dead, Empire, Modern Family, and Homeland.
Fox’s Adam Theiler said the deal is a first for South Africa, and means the first-run rights for Fox’s content no longer sits in one place.
Cell C now has first-run rights for Fox shows, and the subscription video-on-demand window will sit inside Cell C’s Black streaming service.
The Fox channels that will launch on Black are:
- Fox Sports
- Fox Sports 2
- Fox Entertainment
- Fox News
- Fox Life
