When compared to other global regions, Africa & the Middle East (AME)is significantly different in terms of demographic composition, income levels, and telecom infrastructure development. SVOD is still in its infancy in Africa & the Middle East (AME) and is expected to grow relatively fast due to growing portfolios of local and foreign content, improving mobile and fixed broadband, increasing smartphone adoption and bundled mobile/SVOD telco offers.

An increasing number of SVOD players have opted to partner with telecom operators to acquire new subscribers and avoid billing problems such as low bank account penetration.The dominant market players in Africa & the Middle East (AME) vary when comparing Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
