Streamplay and Digicel Pacific partner to launch services in Samoa


Streamplay Studio Limited, a leader in competitive casual gaming, eSports technology, and music streaming services, has announced a key strategic expansion through a partnership with Digicel Pacific, a subsidiary of Australian telecom giant Telstra. This collaboration will see Streamplay introduce its innovative product suite, including mJams, mGames, and core Value-Added Services (VAS), to the Samoan market, leveraging Digicel Samoa’s dominant position with over 71% market share of mobile subscribers.

The partnership is a testament to Streamplay’s growing influence in the Pacific Islands, following its successful ventures in Fiji and Vanuatu. The collaboration with Digicel Samoa represents a significant market opportunity, as Samoa boasts a population of around 224,000, with strong internet (78.2%) and mobile (67.2%) penetration rates.
