After Côte d’Ivoire where Molotov deployed three weeks ago, the audiovisual service announces that it will be present in Senegal during the month of January, then Cameroon in February, Burkina Faso in March, the Tunisia in April, as well as Guinea and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the wake. The rest of the African continent should follow later this semester.
The company is also actively working on its expansion in South America and Asia. “The objective is to rapidly deploy the platform and the brand across the world, primarily in the EMEA zone”, can we read in a press release.
French regional versions
For the moment, these are regional but French-speaking versions of Molotov. They aggregate the live streams of local channels with, in addition, replay and VoD. The interfaces would have been developed taking into account specific local constraints such as low speed or mainly mobile uses. A partnership has been concluded with Digital Virgo to allow subscriptions to be paid by the day and without a credit card for paid offers.
Molotov claims 13.2 million users in France but does not specify the share of paying subscribers out of this total. The streaming service went through financial difficulties and suffered a failed takeover attempt by the Altice * group in 2019. Ultimately, Xavier Niel had bailed it out via his personal holding company.
