It is the first time that the channel will be available in Africa outside of linear Tv canals. The goal here is to create “binge-watching” for the documentaries.

Made popular by Netflix, binge-watching consists in watching many episodes of a Tv programme at a time. According to Jan Koeppen, video on demand, which is closely linked to binge-watching, is often associated with TV series, thus documentaries could also be the same.
