PrideTV has recently announced launching another first in South Africa, a video on demand platform for LGBT community. The channel will tell stories from Africa’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
PrideTV costs R79 a month and R790 for 12 months that includes two months free subscription. They launched over 200 titles for now, and has also promised to add more on a regular basis. “Traditional TV channels have historically offered only small smatterings of one-dimensional LGBT content that ironically reinforces stereotypes instead of shattering them.” said Joanne Raphael Katz, Content Manager, Pride TV.
