SyQic, a Mobile TV Service (OTT) provider of live and on-demand international video content dubbed ‘Yoonic’, has entered a partnership with US mobile payments and analytics company Bango.

This partnership, which is set to be fully integrated in November, will allow global users of the Yoonic service to purchase mobile international videos using a number of payment methods, including operator billing, credit, debit and pre-paid cards. Operator billing enables users to charge the cost of a purchase to their phone bill.

The Yoonic service allows users to access videos on the go, leveraging on its ability to stream video content across a number telecommunication networks.

Bango provides software which allows customers to make payments on their mobile phones which are then charged to their monthly phone bill. In other words, Bango allows users to place charges on their phone bills for purchases made directly from the mobile device, including tablets. Bangos mobile device billing is automatically authenticated through its partnerships with mobile carriers.

In recent news, Bango and mobile software development company Mobile Media Info Tech (MMIT) have jointly launched M-Ifl, a mobile payment service that enables online transactions for digital content in Sub-Saharan Africa.
