NextSpeel, a new online streaming site for TV episodes and series wants to let you watch the best TV series and soap operas from Nigeria and Africa for free.
With popular soap operas from Nigeria such as Super Story and AY’s Crib, the platform says it would be launching this Friday, May 3 with at least five full episode TV drama series and soap operas and would be adding more content with time.
We’re not certain yet which of the sopa operas would be availabe when it officially launches. But the company told TechLoy that it has acquired “the rights to stream these content from the producers and are bringing it to the world for free.”
Again, we don’t know why NextSpeel isn’t charging a subscription fee to access the content, although it could be introducing this feature in the future.
While the platform doesn’t allow you to download the TV series/episodes, it relies on its dedicated cloud servers to host the videos and leverage technology and partners in the sector to protect its content.
Although NextSpeel’s niche is TV, it is planning other kinds of content, so we won’t be surprised if it ventures into movies, comedy and animation content. The company also plans to offer its content via mobile, although it would not be available on apps yet.
At the moment, a coming soon page is live for the launch this week with a countdown timer. We’ll be sure to provide more updates as the platform launches.
