ABOUT

 

Connect Channel (Pty) Ltd is a digital content and television production company
that has been an Enterprise Development beneficiary of Multichoice Ltd and is led by Basetsana Kumalo and Clifford Elk. Connect.tv develops new formats and produces digital content for TV (long form) and for mobile devices (short form).
Connect.tv opens the window into Africa and entertains viewers with great stories
told by Africans. We are not only one of South Africa’s leading production
companies, we also work with extraordinary African writers, directors, creatives and

on-screen talent who offer up resonant and contemporary insights that unveil a local perspective of the continent.


From our base in Johannesburg, where the African continent converges in one city,
we have produced more than 1 000 hours of studio, reality and short form content
and covered more than 200 unique African weddings in our ratings-hit TV show OurPerfect Wedding.
 
Since our inception in November 2012 Connect.tv has produced some 500 hours of
light studio entertainment and over 460 hours of original unscripted television. We
currently have some 100 hours of unscripted reality shows in production and a
number of new and exciting projects in development that should appeal to viewers
from the African Diaspora where-ever they currently live.
 
Connect.tv has created 8 culturally relevant unscripted reality productions shot in
English and indigenous languages. These shows include Our Perfect Wedding, Date
My Family, Diski Divas, Bootcamp, Utatakho, Please Step IN, Ons Spruikies Bruilof
(Our fairy-tale Wedding) and Married in a Flash. Connect has also recently curated and hosted the SA Pavilion at the Venice Biennale on behalf of the Department of Art and Culture and has also just wrapped shooting an exciting cooking reality show for KFC called KFC Taste Kitchen.
 
In addition to long form video, ConnectUP has also  uploaded over 400 hyper-local
unscripted videos onto WIFI-TV. The productions were produced by 14 young
interns and included the ‘ask Ramokgopa campaign’ which was an exciting
interactive communication strategy for the executive mayor, as well as 'hit the
right note' a commercial brand awareness campaign for Cepacol.  

All videos were between 3-5 minutes long suitable for watching on the move, and broadcast over the City of Tshwane's free wifi network to mobile devices.
