Lebara Play – the self-styled "universal brand for the world's immigrant community" – has hit the UK. The Netflix-inspired streaming service brings English, French West African, Turkish and Tamil content from such providers as Sun TV, KTV, Nollywood TV, ATV Avrupa and the African Movie Channel.

It's available now on Android devices or online. Prices start at £9.99 a month.

A version for iOS is coming soon, as is a Lebara Play set-top box, which will set you back £149. That includes a year's subscription, which would cost about £120 on its own.

The service hopes to offer more content soon. By the end of the year, it aims to offer content in a total of 13 languages, including Romanian, Polish and Hindi.

“We’ve built relationships with some of the leading content companies worldwide, and in the coming months we’ll be announcing further deals to deliver customers even more of the TV and movies they love in their own language," said Lebara Play CEO Aditya Thakur. 

“Lebara Play provides a huge range of content - blending the best of video on demand movies and live TV programming - with a simple and intuitive user experience, at a competitive price.”

You can register up to three devices per Lebara Play account, letting you watch on your TV, PC and mobile.
