African satellite operator ZAP is to carry programming from Brazilian broadcaster Globo in Angola and Mozambique from 1 July 2015.

The channel Globo ON will feature South American telenovelas, miniseries and comedies, and run on the predominantly Portuguese-speaking satellite platform ZAP, alongside an HD feed from the Brazilian network.

"We've been in Angola since the 1980s, when we started broadcasting the first telenovelas in the country; our content has always been welcomed both here and in Mozambique," said Ricardo Scalamandré, head of international business, Globo.

"The move to ZAP, a company that understands and invests in the development of these countries, is our way to honour viewers. We want to be closer to our audience."

Nuno Aguiar, ZAP's CEO, added: "2015 marks our fifth anniversary of operations and the partnership with Globo is the best gift we could offer to our customers."
