Premium Content for Less with Kwesé’s Price Drop Promotion



STAYING true to its intention of being an affordable premium content broadcaster, Kwesé TV has launched an exciting price drop promotion for its customers. Starting this September, and for a limited time only, one month’s subscription to Kwesé TV will cost a significantly reduced ZMW 185.00 (VAT and TV levy inclusive) for the full bouquet.

In a time when the cost of living and subscription service fees continue to increase across the continent, this promotion aims to give African consumers much needed relief. The price promotion sees Kwesé TV’s monthly subscription fee drop by ZMWK100.00 from the original ZMW 255.00 price point, offering premium sports and entertainment content for less.

“As a new and growing business on the continent, it is important that we keep a close eye on our audience’s viewing and purchasing habits. We have seen that consumers are increasingly opting for reasonably priced subscription services, as opposed to high end TV subscriptions,” explained Econet Media CEO and President, Joseph Hundah.

“While there is clear appetite for alternative TV entertainment, Kwesé wants to provide content that is both engaging and inexpensive.  The primary objective of this promotion is to make our product offering more accessible to viewers at all income levels. We want to reward our loyal subscribers as well as incentivize new subscribers looking for premium home entertainment that doesn’t break the bank,” Hundah added.

Kwesé’s ZMW185.00 (VAT and TV levy inclusive) price promotion is only applicable to its monthly subscription service of ZMW255.00 (VAT and TV levy inclusive). During the eight-week promotion the three and seven-day subscription services will be suspended. Considering the overall saving, why not take up the more economical a monthly subscription.

What’s more, Kwesé viewers can look forward to exciting content changes over the next few months which will give viewers more of what you want and less of what they don’t need. Kwesé will continue to streamline and reconfigure its programming line-up during the price promotion period, further tailoring its content bouquet. The bouquet reconfiguration will be guided by channel performance and popularity over the past two years.

There has never been a better time to remain a Kwesé TV subscriber, so be sure to renew your subscription this month and continue to enjoy your favourite content for less.
