No worries for Kwese Play users, the streaming service us still around. Earlier on we reported that Kwese Play users woke up to find a chilling message on their TVs saying that “Econet no longer offers Kwese Play”.
Luckily, that’s not the case. Apparently, they are experiencing technical problems which they are working on resolving so don’t fret.
Pan-African broadcaster, Econet Media, has noted that today customers received a notification on their devices that they have been deactivated.
Kwesé Play service was launched in partnership with Roku, a US-based OTT streaming platform. We have been in discussions with Roku regarding the viability of the Kwesé Play service.
The closure of the service and the message relayed on the device this morning was unexpected and comes at a time when we are engaged in discussions with Roku about their future plans on Africa.
We apologise for the inconvenience and are working on resolving this. Detailed communication will be provided to all customers in due course.
