Speaking on the news, Niclas Ekdahl, CEO of the Connected Video division of MultiChoice said in part; “We expected Somhale to do well but the response was even bigger than we’d hoped, and it goes to show how our shift to local content is paying dividends. In fact, the views of local content are up more than 40% in less than a year.”
