The channel will be programmed with thousands of hours of Rok Studios-produced TV shows and movies, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will be available to all Sky subscribers on channel 344.
Nigerian cinema, known colloquially as Nollywood, is the second largest film industry in the world, in terms of production output.

The free-to-view channel will be fully programmed, produced and developed in-house, by Rok teams in Lagos and London....
