The streaming platform, which is currently getting an avalanche of subscriptions across the world, is changing the narrative of the viewer experience, not just in quality content, but also in carefully drafted storylines that are worth paying to watch.

JMSlide is poised to serve as an only rallying point for all exclusive indigenous videos for uninterrupted streaming speed like never before.
The platform offers tons of titles, classics and exclusive movies that are only reserved by JMSlide. The website rotates its offerings, so there’s always something new to watch.
The Group Managing Director, Olaniyi Karonwi told newsmen that JMSlide is a digital innovation that discourages piracy and makes movie streaming at affordable subscription cost despite its tons of high-quality exclusive home videos.
“We have launched successfully in the United States and United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Nigerians can also access our platform via smart TV, web and mobile devices. By mid-November, Nigerians will be accessible to the full features on all mobile apps. But viewers can still visit www.jmslide-us.com and subscribe for maximum enjoyment.
“Subscribers can watch Premium movies from as low as ₦1,000 to as high as ₦2,350 per month. The Platinum Plan that has been newly introduced is N27, 600 ($66.24) per annum.
“It also allows users to sign in to receive updates of new movies and more. JMSlide provides a wide range of movies and TV shows that can be streamed up to 1080p, so quality isn’t an issue.
“To register as a user doesn’t take more than a minute, and you only need to provide a name, email address, and password.
