Two US-based Nigerians, Bamidele Adetayo
and Suleiman Nadabo, have developed a
Web App, “Entertale’’ to give TV audience in
Africa and the world quality experiences.
Adetayo on Tuesday in Abuja said
“Entertale’’ was an online live TV and movie
“It allows users to watch multiple live TV
stations for free.
“The story of Entertale begins due to lack for
African valued TV contents to enable people
connect with what are happenings and
watch movies and TV shows with friends
they are already connected with.
“The App which is set for launch later in the
month does not require monthly
subscription, and the live channels would
comprise international and African TV
stations,’’ Adetayo said.
Also speaking, the co-founder, Nadabo
stressed that the web service which solely
focused on TV, allow users to also rent
movies that they were only interested in
He said that users would also get
notifications on what their friends were
watching, follow and chat with them.
According to Nadabo, in the App is a feature
called “Co-Play’’ which give users the options
to watch movies they rented with friends
irrespective of location.
“Using the App is like watching television in
an alternate reality where you do not
recognise any of the shows while evolving a
new space that has been lacking in the
African entertainment industry.
“Cord cutting’ might be getting another kin
but this time it is driven with a social
experience – a free service that mimics the
cable box with Internet channels instead of
traditional ones and cinematic experience.
“The app is still in its web versions where
much of the content comes from YouTube;
in its movie model cases, Entertale also
makes direct content deals with big
independent studios to access their latest
library,” Nadabo said.
