KairosWebTV, a next-generation premier online TV platform for emerging and aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups has been launched in Nigeria to transform the nation’s online television space. The TV offers news and insights, technology trends, edutainment, skits, events and online digital training.
The innovative webTV, is owned and run by CIHAN and focuses on motivating and inspiring viewers to success. It features seven channels with content from partners across over the world such as Fate Foundation, Real Success (South Africa), Nigerian Olympic Committee and The Winlos, among others.
Speaking at the media launch in Lagos on Tuesday, the Chief Executive Officer of CIHAN, Mr. Celestine Achi, the founder of KairoswebTV, said that KairosWebTv was designed to save cost for the viewers, adding that the era of reaping off payTV viewers must be challenged through disruptive technologies.
Achi, a Digital PR strategist and social techpreneur, said that KairosWebTv had been configured to save users’ data, “which has been the reason some people are keeping off the online platforms. We want to restore confidence in the minds of digital natives, while providing enabling ground for the digital migrants to exploit the power of the internet. Whether you are on 2G, 3G or 4G LTE, the experience will be such that videos should show seamlessly.”
The CIHAN CEO said that the platform would deepen local contents as part of measures to boost the digital migration through Nollywood contents.
He explained further on the various channels of KairosWebTv: “The Entrepreneurship Channel focuses on motivating emerging entrepreneurs and startups. We are doing that through three key partnerships. The NetNEWS Channel provides up-to-date news on entertainment, politics, business and sports. We will even go deeper to give you news behind the news, which is usually the human angel stories.”
Achi added: “KairosWebTv also recognises the need to inspire creativity. That is why we have the Winlos Channel, which uses creative, inspiring and hilarious skits and sketches as well as dramatic illustrations to motivate viewers based on real life issues. The TechSavvy Channel delivers news and insights on the latest technology trends.”
The E-vent Channel will be exclusively for live streaming of events, product launches, and conferences, while the EduSense Channel will be be utilised to students on core subjects.
“As a way of giving back to the society, we have a Digital PR Channel that offers masterclass training and courses in social media and Digital PR,” Achi said. “Any organisation that wants to be relevant in this digital disruption era must have competencies in digital marketing and other kits. So, we want to train people FREE, through online channel.
In his intervention, the Chief Executive Officer of Red Sappire Limited, Mr Ono Akpe, said that as the online media partners to the Nigerian Olympics Committee (NOC) for Rio Olympics 2016, TeamNaija Channel is working with a media consortium for live streaming of the Olympic Games.
“We are already making headways with a lot of partnerships. For instance, we have a sports channel, which at the moment is called TeamNaija, brought to you in partnership with the Nigerian Olympics Committee. TeamNaija is dedicated to the advancement of sports in Nigeria and to the success of Nigeria at the forthcoming Olympics in Rio, Brazil. All activities are to be streamed live,” Akpe assured.
