Launched in November last year, the African movie platform NollyLand has announced the availability of its Roku channel to audiences in the United States and Canada.
The Roku Channel had been available since 2014 in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
In a statement to TechMoran Dr. Ngozi Victoria Uti, NollyLand’s founder and CE said, “This is a major step for both NollyLand and Roku. NollyLand is now available to Roku users in North America to watch unlimited Nigerian, Ghanaian, and African Movies.”

NollyLand‘s Roku Channel offers automatic bookmarking, adaptive video streaming, personalized watch lists, timeline thumbnails, advanced search features, and more. The platform also recently launched support for Google Chromecast via their free Android App. The App allows Chromecast users to “cast” movies from NollyLand to any Chromecast equipped television via their smartphone or tablet.
“Of course, anyone who already has a NollyLand account can login on Roku for no charge, and start enjoying their subscription or use their credits immediately” points out Dr. Uti. “And if you want to Cast, all you need is our free Android App and a Chromecast equipped TV.”
Users can purchase a NollyLand subscription on the NollyLand website, or in Channel on Roku for a 1 Day Pass, 3 Day Pass, 30 Day Pass, or NollyLand Credits to watch movies concurrently on all devices via the NollyLand Roku Channel, NollyLand Apps for iPhone / iPad, Android, Blackberry, or even just via your laptop or desktop. One family member can be at home using Roku, another can be waiting for a flight at the Airport and watching on a smartphone.
According to the firm which was registered in the US and Nigeria in 2011 and went live in 2014 as NollyLand Direct Ltd, Roku and Chromecast give NollyLand access to a global audience of discerning viewers who expect World Class Quality. “And that’s what we do” says Dr. Uti. “That’s our business. Anywhere in the world you happen to be, and whatever world-class device you use, NollyLand is already there streaming.”
NollyLand competes iROKOtv, Afrinolly, Aflix, Sabona among others.
