It is so unfortunate that one of DStv strongest competitors is closing down the operation. Kwesé has streamlined its satellite television service.
With just 18-months of operation, Kwese TV is closing down operation in over 50 cities across the African continent to focus on digital of Video On Demand (VOD), according to a press statement released by their parent company, Econet Media.
According to a statement released by Econet Media, reportedly said that the development had been necessitated by review of its business strategy and service offerings, meaning that the company is following changes in the global digital and satellite broadcasting sector, as well as the growth in access to mobile and fixed broadband on the continent.
As of November 1, Kwese will only offer three services; Kwese Free Sports, Kwese iflix and Kwese Play. Those who had Kwese's satellite service were surprised to wake up on the first of this month to see all their channels disappear.
Below is the official statement posted on FB Page by IDGD - Kwese Authorised Dealer:
Kwese was launched in Ghana, Rwanda, Zambia, and Nigeria in 2017 as an alternative service to MultiChoice DStv, with the hope that it will change the pay-TV sector in Africa, but unfortunately, Kwese TV failed to outsmart DStv in the pay-TV industry in Africa.
Now that Kwese Satellite TV has conquered, can TStv as well survive their fighting?
