YouTube Kenya is launched.
I was meant to attend the launch of YouTube Kenya yesterday but other commitments kept me away. The new web site was launched at www.youtube.co.ke and it features local video content from Kenya. In addition, users can access the web site in Kiswahili, if that is their preferred language. At the same time, users in Kenya who have spotty bandwidth can also access videos using YouTube Feather which optimizes streaming for slower Internet connections. All in all, an excellent initiative by Google for Kenya in driving the local content agenda. Below is the video from YouTube launching their Kenya web site:
so the really big question now – is it now (finally) possible to become a youtube partner when you have a Kenyan based youtube account – or is it just a half/branding launch ?
Thats very true indeed; when are they allowing Kenyan Partnerships!
LOL, no Rapho’s sheng video among them?
good stuff..this is in-line with IT being a pillar of vision 2030.
I don’t know why it keeps redirecting to the main site (www.youtube.com) when i try to open the local one 🙁
I’m still wondering what effect launching youtube kenya has had on the Kenyan corporate. I haven’t seen any corporate take advantage of it. Even nation is still using the .com for youtube. Great article as always Mr. Kemibaro
If I wanted to advertise my merchandise, how do I go about it? Any cost implications etc?
