“For a generation that’s on-the-go more often than not, streaming content through mobile and portable devices has become extremely valuable. Live TV and lean-back channels are still prominent models of consumption among many audiences across the world and we are delighted to cater to current audience demands by delivering one of our most popular channels through mobile via Yabadoo in Mozambique,” added Haymi Behar, CMO & CDO at SPI International.
