Zuku TV Targets 100K Clients in Uganda in Two Years
Uganda’s latest home entertainment pay television service, Zuku TV, has set high ambitions for the Uganda market. Having launched and set in place an elaborate countrywide distribution and customer service network, Zuku believes it is confident of breaching the One hundred thousand subscriber mark in Uganda within the first two years.
Zuku TV is ramping up Ugandan distribution by boosting the team of resellers with additional agents that will complement the Simba Telecom outlets. The company has completed a training module for 150 agents who will work with Simba and installation team to deliver the product to customers doorstep and provide after sales support.
Wananchi group CEO, Richard Bell, said that Zuku was uniquely positioned in the Ugandan market as a truly dedicated African service made by Africans for Africa. “For the first time in the history of Uganda’s film and television industry, the local producers and creative writers have a platform to showcase their work not just for audiences in Uganda but across ten eastern African countries,” he noted.
Zuku is looking for more local content after recently starting to screen the popular ‘Hostel’ series. The company will try to help clients manage the power problems in most parts of Uganda by introducing decoders which can run on Wet Cell (Car Battery).
