It’s going to be an exciting New Year for tenagers across Nigeria and Africa as the first indigenous television channel for teenagers debuted on Startimes Channel 361 on January 1, 2021.
According to the founder/CEO, Teen Africa TV, Charles Novia,’ the new television channel is the first platform for teenagers in the African broadcasting space, running 24 hours daily with the best of original content for teenagers aged 13 to 19 , including young adults and the family.
“Our programming has the best of original content in genres of talk shows, lifestyle, education, entertainment and events. Teen Africa TV has the biggest content library and resource for teenagers across continent and we have the best of original content for the demographics. TATV will also be online and on YouTube and we are also going on air in North America and the Carribean in the first half of 2021, giving the Diaspora African teens a taste of the pulsating values and creativity of the African youth experience. There’s nothing like this and we have built the biggest visual ecosystem of teens and young adults in Africa,” he explained.
The Teen Africa TV social media handles on Instagram and Facebook already have teenagers excited at the thought of their own indigenous channel, and while the channel has been actively carrying out its test transmission in the past few months, the impact of other aspects of the organisation has been felt by the teenagers all year. The TATV Instagram page is one of the most visited platforms for teenagers so far and Teen Africa has also been investing in young musical talents with it’s subsidiary company, Teen Africa Music.
