African Hulu? NextSpeel Lets You Watch African TV Shows Online

Screen shot 2013-07-10 at 1.31.52 AM I don’t know why this isn’t already a thing. This should have been a thing a long time ago when online things were becoming things. NextSpeel is a new website that aims to bring all your favourite African soap operas and TV shows to you online. Specifically, they want to make full episodes of shows that made waves on TV available to users online and on demand.

The service launched in Nigeria first and will soon come to other West African countries before expanding to the rest of Africa. For now they only have a few shows available including Tinsel, Jacob’s Cross, Doctors Quarters and Lekki Wives, and from the login page mock-up, I spied Super Story in the screenshot. Now that would be the day.

Launched a few weeks ago, NextSpeel’s simple and seamless design make watching shows a breeze. It’s ironic that its show page’s design looks overly similar to Hulu’s. One thing I don’t like is you have to create an account to watch the shows, and if you’re anything like me, that is a pain.

Check it out and let us know what you think!
