Inspired by Africa


The Africa Channel International is the premier international general entertainment television network inspired by Africa, bringing you award winning programming, 24 hours a day 7 days a week to entertain and inform the whole family.

From our London headquarters, we provide 24 hour, English-language television networks for a diverse audience across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

We are inspired by Africa and passionate about bringing the best programming featuring Africa, to all.  Our bold, high-quality programming offers fresh perspectives of the continent and its people, reflecting the significant influence that Africa has had globally.  Our broad range of programming – including film, drama, news, documentaries, wildlife, music and sport – celebrates, informs and entertains.

We seek out the very best programming from around the world, but particularly throughout Africa, North America and Europe.  We combine shows from a range of African independent producers and major International Distributors with our own in-house productions.

Our programming spans insightful documentaries, such as RFK in the Land of Apartheid and African Masters, to films that range from award-winning African cinema (Nairobi Half Life, Soul Boy) to Nollywood, and Hollywood.  On the lighter side we have reality formats, African-style such as Nigerian Idol and family favourites such as Desmond’s.
