StarNews Mobile has announced a new partnership with mobile cloud gaming company CareGame. The tie-up will provide unlimited, mobile cloud gaming to 45 million StarNews Mobile subscribers in South Africa and Senegal, while expanding CareGame’s reach into Africa.
“We’re thrilled to have CareGame join StarNews Mobile’s platform,” said Guy Kamgaing, CEO of StarNews Mobile. “CareGame is a one-of-a-kind solution that offers cloud gaming to areas of the world that have bandwidth issues such as Africa. The success we’ve enjoyed with video content is a strong indicator of our market’s appetite for other digital experiences and we’re eager to introduce CareGame’s offering to our users in what we anticipate will be a highly successful rollout.”
CareGame will leverage StarNews Mobile’s platform and established telecom relationships with Orange and MTN in order to distribute its mobile gaming experience. It delivers a premium, ad-free, AAA mobile cloud gaming experience, providing a 60fps, low-latency solution over a 1.5Mbit/s connection – eliminating the constraints of downloads, storage capacity and device compatibility.
It enables mobile operators to capitalise on their audiences and attract new customers with a customised turnkey solution featuring high-quality content, while empowering mobile game studios and publishers to effortlessly increase their reach. As of 2021, its games are available in 44 countries worldwide across Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia.
