KWESE OVERWHELMED IN ZIM :STRIVE | Strive Masiyiwa says the response in Zimbabwe to Kwese TV has been overwhelming, with long queues outside the firm’s stores.
“In some cases and places, our installers (called Technites) are having challenges getting all the installations done (takes almost half a day to install dish and decoder in some locations).
We really appreciate everyone’s support. Remember it took our competitors 25 years to build what they show, and we have already caught up after less than a year…He said the most exciting development for him was the decision to create “what we call the “Kwesé FREE TV” boutique.
This is a minimum of 5x channels which are free at all times even if someone does not have money on their decoder subscription.
The five “always on” channels are:
# Kwesé FREE Sport (KFS): the biggest sports channel in Africa, which shows live English Premier League, and NBA games.
# Kwesé FREE Entertainment (KFE): A new general entertainment channel which will show latest premium shows including kids, movies, series, and African entertainment. This goes live in January.
# African News: the best African news channel.
# Local FREE-To-Air Channels: every national broadcaster
channel will be available.
# Flow TV.
# We also want people to have the flexibility to pay just for three days, or seven days, whenever they’d like to access all our other channels!
