Competitors
There are several online companies that offer online documentaries about social issues in Africa. However, Africa Investigates is one of the very few companies that provide authentic stories about Africa. Africa Investigates tends to tell the stories from a local perspective through the lens of local journalists and reporters. It would be interesting to have a brief look at the competitors and explore ways in which Insight News TV can collaborate with them or learn new ideas to distribute its documentaries. Here are some of the news companies that provide online documentaries about Africa:

  • SPRWord: was started to counter the continuing consolidation of mainstream media and its limited and agenda-based reporting. The company plans to counter corporate media by providing links to important videos, articles and websites that reveal what corporate mainstream refuses to recognize as need to know information. Some of the documentaries are about Africa, therefore it would be an opportunity for Africa Investigates to get in contact with them and see if they can make their documentaries available to the consumers.

  • Freedocumentaries: This company streams full documentary film free of charge, with no registration needed for several times. They even offer the ability to watch trailer to download the actual film. It promotes many documentaries made an Africa. Africa Investigates can collaborate with them in order to increase its visibility and at a low or free cost. Moreover, the company receives all types of movies starting from the ones that are created by independent filmmakers who depend on sites like ours to get their information to the public.

  • Top Documentary Films: The content on this website is created with a passion for documentary films, the site is in open form and it is allowing readers to add comments about documentary they like or dislike.TDF offers watchable documentaries and information on documentaries. Some of the shows present African documentaries. Africa Investigates could explore opportunities to sell its documentaries for this company.

  • Africa interactive: Africa Interactive was founded by two journalists who felt that Africa was too often portrayed as a lost continent. The founders are eager to give a more authentic view of the continent. To do so, they wanted African media talent to participate. Africa Investigates seem to be a good fit, since they hire local journalist to provide an authentic lens of the stories.
