“This most recent relaunch of our channels by Play in Nigeria clearly demonstrates the SPI’s ability to deliver unique and top quality content that viewers in the West Africa region find attractive,” said Amit Karni, SPI’s head of distribution Africa.

“We truly appreciate Play’s commitment to rebrand Consat and relaunch our channels as part of the new service,” he added.

Funmi Adenaike, general manager at Play, said: “Play, formerly known as Consat, has rebranded and this has made way for more exciting channels on our television platform. Play is being positioned as a youth-friendly brand which is playing in a league that has been recognised as highly competitive, a league with endless opportunities. Play focuses on delivering content and world-class channels for both domestic and global audience. This is one of the reasons why we have launched the SPI channels.”
