iROKOtv For Windows Phone Launches Exclusively For Nokia’s Lumia
iROKOtv, the largest distributor of Nollywood content online, has announced a Windows Phone 8 app exclusively to Nokia’s Lumia range. The app gives iROKOtv and iROKOtv+ subscribers access to its catalogue of Nollywood movies on their mobile phones.
For the first three months of using the app, all subscribers get free movies after signup. Like the iROKOtv website, payment would be required for access to new movies under iROKOtv+
Users also have the ability to take actions they’ll usually make on the iROKOtv website – like the ability to search movies by actor, genre and name and also the ability to add movies to a “Watch Later” list.
Bonuses on iROKOtv for Windows Phone 8 on Nokia’s lumia phones include behind-the-scenes videos from movie sets, interviews with Nollywood stars and news from the entertainment industry.
In the past few years we’ve seen Nokia Nigeria push apps onto devices like the Danfo game by Pledge51 and Afrinolly by Fansconnectonline. So far, they’ve been quite successful as the native addition is a win-win for the developers and for Nokia.
For developers, they get more people to use their apps and for OEMs, people would buy phones pre-installed because of certain apps and features.
If you haven’t got a Windows Phone 8 running Lumia, we found a link to iROKOtv’s Windows Phone 8 app. We’re not sure it works but you can try downloading it here.
