Barely a week after delighting football fans across the continent with a gripping buffet of African football action live from the Afcon 2017 tournament, MultiChoice will further turn up the football fever with the addition of the rest of the 2016/17 Emirates FA Cup season to all DStv packages at no extra cost!
From Saturday, 18 February until 27 May 2017, all active DStv customers on Compact, Family and Access will score big with a coveted “all-access” pass to enjoy all the action Live and in HD from the comfort of their homes! Customers will have a front-row view as one of the most celebrated football cup competitions – the Emirates FA Cup, enters its tantalising fifth round.
“At MultiChoice, we understand that our customers love football as much as we do. With the Afcon 2017 now over, we want to make sure that they continue to enjoy world-class football, regardless of their package plan,” said Lovemore Mangwende, Chief Executive Officer for MultiChoice Zimbabwe. “Adding the rest of the season of Emirates FA Cup to all the DStv packages will further add more value for our customers as well as enhance their viewing experience.”
Econet Media launched Kwese tv this year and its no surprise the DStv may be freeing the hit . Kwese tv will possibly end an over a decade long monopoly of digital live sports broadcasting by MultiChoice owned DSTV.
The Econet group has committed up to $500 million in various acquisition and expansion deals in Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, Uganda, and South Africa, and owns the Kwese free sports channel that is currently available in 19 countries. Kwesé also features coverage of English Premier League, Formula One, international Cricket, Aviva Premiership Rugby, Spanish Copa Del Rey, Brazilian football, among others.
