New pay television network Kwesé TV launched its service in Botswana as the service has been banned in Zimbabwe after the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe cancelled the broadcasting licence for Kwese TV’s content distributor, Dr. Dish. Dr Dish is now threatening to sue BAZ and it’s Chief executive officer for the “illegal decision” to cancel the licence.
General Manager at Kwesé TV Goabaone Kgosana said,
Batswana have been hungry for an alternative and we believe we have the answer with our programming bouquet which speaks to every viewing appetite and budget.
As a business premised on making premium content accessible, we have also made our service available at varying price points by pioneering ‘pay-as-you-watch’ subscription packages which enable consumers to purchase seven and three day passes, at 88 BWP and 50 BWP respectively,”
