Come November 1, 2016, Rok Studios will be launching their channel, ROK on DSTV Channel 168, bringing exciting original content to 52 countries, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The new channel which is supported by Iroko, African technology and entertainment broadcaster and content distributor will launch with ROK Studios’ exclusively-produced content, including Festac Town, Banks Chronicles and Bloodline. ROK will be available to DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus and DStv Compact customers. Some of its content will also be available on the DStv Catch-Up service.
Speaking on the launch, ROK CEO, Mary Njoku said, “Joining the DStv family is the next step in ROK’s evolution as Nollywood’s leading film production house and brand. Broadcasting our original content to millions of movie fans across the African continent, on a platform as far-reaching and illustrious as DStv, is an exhilarating prospect.
“What lies beneath every ROK production, the ROK brand, be it movies or TV series, is our fanatical love of African storytelling; we want to relate amazing African stories that our fans can recognize, be swept away by and be entertained with. We work with Nigeria’s most exceptional talent, in front of and behind the camera, and we continue to push the boundaries in terms of production values. This has given us the edge, in our short history, and has helped us build a fanbase around the world. ROK on DStv allows us to bring ROK to every corner of the continent and connect viewers with content they love”.
