Eebo is a video platform in Uganda which aims to help creators market their content to viewers who pay for access to their work directly. For users to access said content without internet cost, its strategy is to open up as many public WiFi hotspots as possible.
The tutorial will take the viewer through Eebo‘s history, from the office where the team is working in to the public WiFi hotspots, to interviews with location owners who host Eebo boxes to asking Eebo users for their opinions. The video tour will also introduce local content creators, and ask them how they use the platform, what it means for them to be able to sell their digital goods to end consumers directly and how that affects their day to day and creative process. In the end, viewers will also find out what their challenges are.
