Kwese TV: A New Satellite And Broadcasting Network By Econet Media – Here Is All You Need To Know


Could Kwese TV be the change we have all been waiting for? So About 2 weeks ago, I had such a long and stressful day at the DSTV Head office in Abuja; from a never ending queue to customers complaining from every angle. It was very clear something had to be done about this!

The truth is DSTV has the monopoly in the satellite broadcasting business in Africa and with little or no completion available in the region; they are beginning to get comfortable and not doing much to improve its customer service.

The beauty about competition is that we the consumers end up benefiting from it. Competition puts everyone on their toes, reduces prices, improves customer service and most importantly brings about the introduction of new discounts and price cuts. The big question is; is Kwese TV the big dog we have all been waiting for?
