African Movie Channel (AMC) has signed a carriage agreement with African DTT operator StarTimes, which will see AMC launching on StarTimes' platform at the start of August.

AMC started in April 2006 as an on-demand service for Nollywood and other top quality African movies in the UK on the then Homechoice pay-TV platform, and evolved into a worldwide on-demand service a year later. This is still a core part of its business, in addition to programming sales to other broadcasters and in-flight entertainment providers; AMC launched its 24-hour linear TV channel in May 2011.
