The offerings will be made available from Tuesday, 19 May. This follows CANAL+ Group's move to reinforce its English-speaking channel proposition within its pay-TV offer and footprint in the country.
CANAL+ Group has a vast presence in pay-TV in Africa with its French-speaking channels and aims to reinforce its subscriber base in a country where half of the population counts as English speaking.
While WarnerMedia is already distributing the CNN International through the platform in Rwanda, this deal will further diversify its channel offering giving Les Bouquets Canal+ viewers access to the blockbuster movie channel tailored for African viewers, TNT, as well as WarnerMedia's Cartoon Network.
"WarnerMedia has been present in Africa for more than 20 years, operating six channels across the continent in 56 English, French and Portuguese speaking countries," says Guillaume Coffin, VP head of commercial and business development turner France, Africa and Israel.
"Launching TNT and Cartoon Network is an exciting expansion of our partnership with Canal+ Group in Africa. I am convinced that the tremendous success of these two channels in Africa, as well as their dedicated line-up of content and productions tailored for African viewers, will be welcomed by CANAL+ subscribers in Rwanda," adds Coffin.
"This is, once again, confirmation that our localisation strategy is meeting the growing demand from viewers," says Coffin.
"We are delighted to bring TNT and Cartoon Network to our Les Bouqets Canal+ subscribers in Rwanda. These two channels are a must-see in terms of Hollywood blockbusters and unexpected and imaginative children's programming and will seamlessly satisfy our viewers; expectations," concludes Alexandre Gruner, SVP channels acquisitions and partnerships for Canal+ International.
