The TV, home phone and broadband provider's one million TV customers will have access to eight channels as part of the African TV Boost.

These include Nollywood Movies, Ebony Life TV, Soundcity, Channels, Silverbird, Citizen, Metro TV and Bukedde.

For £10 per month, TalkTalk TV viewers will be able to watch a variety of African movies, music, fashion, talk shows, news and lifestyle programmes.

YouView users can sign up for one month at a time with no contract, and no ongoing commitment.

The African TV Boost is the latest world TV package to launch on TalkTalk - viewers can also sign up for Bollywood, Arabic, Afrikaans and Japanese channels.

TalkTalk will work in partnership with THEMA - which aggregates foreign TV channels into packages - to provide the new service.

The company will also provide TalkTalk with legal, technical and marketing expertise as it launches the new African TV Boost.

Tristia Harrison, Managing Director for Consumer at TalkTalk, said YouView from TalkTalk is "going from strength to strength every day".

She said the new channel package is "a great addition" to the TalkTalk TV line-up.

"We’re pleased to be extending our partnership with THEMA to be able to offer TalkTalk homes a wealth of fantastic family entertainment from across the world," Ms Harrison claimed.

François Thiellet, Chief Executive of THEMA, said his company is "very glad" to make its channels available in the UK - a country where international communities thrive.

He claimed there is "no better partner" than TalkTalk TV to reach its audience.
