Creating New Opportunities in African Broadcasting
Created by one of the most experienced management teams in television shopping channels in the UK, the United States and Asia, the plan is ready to bring television shopping to Africa. Research has been conducted in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa, and the team believes the time is right to start market testing with new payment and deilvery systems.

'Africa is changing faster than many in the developed markets of the West have noticed, and that observation applies to television and multi-channel broadcasting as much as any other business area. TTCAfrica was formed to bring the expertise gained in developed markets to Africa, and to find opportunities for new businesses, and relationships.'
Ed Hall, Founder TTCAfrica.

Understanding New Markets...
Ten years ago African multi-channel broadcasting was in its infancy. Ed got together with a group of fellow broadcast professionals and they decided to monitor what was happening. As new markets opened the team kept in touch and started to advise on market oppotunities in Africa. TTCAfrica was born.
The team has advised broadcasters in Nigeria, Kenya, Rwands and South Africa. We have built relationships across the region, and we are ready to help Western broadcasters understand the African marketplace.
We work with existing research companies and regional experts to deliver the best team for your project.
