After months of questioning whether Kwese will televise the upcoming 2018 Fifa World Cup, Kwese has cleared the air by announcing that it will broadcast all 64 FIFA World Cup matches live in Zimbabwe. The matches will be broadcasted on all its digital platforms that range from the Kwese satellite TV to mobile devices via its newly launched ‘Kwese-iflix’ mobile App ( we will tell you more on this App).
By broadcasting all matches, Kwese has proved it has what it takes to provide top-notch programs. And also the news will certainly dispel some doubts people had with Kwese regarding its capability of bringing the much-demanded programs like English Premier league and Champions league.
ZBC TV also too
Additionally and surprisingly all 64 FIFA World Cup matches will be broadcasted on ZBC TV through a partnership deal Kwese has struck with the local national broadcaster. This is good news for most Zimbabweans who don’t have Kwese devices and also those who are struggling to pay for subscriptions partly because of financial constraints. Not forgetting that a huge population in rural areas still depend on ZBC so they will be happy with this Kwese-ZBC partnership.
Speaking at a media launch in Harare, Head of Kwesé TV in Zimbabwe, Mrs. Dorothy Zimuto, said;
We are proud to announce that following our recent licensing for content distribution, webcasting, and video-on-demand, we will be bringing the best World Cup experience ever to Zimbabweans on all our Kwese platforms….We will bring you the best of the action through our Kwesé satellite service and through the Kwese TV Everywhere App that gives extended viewing on up to four mobile devices tethered to the satellite account)…Customers will also be able to catch all the World Cup action through our Kwese digital platforms, namely KweseESPN, Kwese.com and Kwesefied sites, through the Kwese-Free-to-Air Service (FTA) on local TV, via the national broadcaster ZBC
