Discarded by its globe-trotting parent Naspers after more than three decades, African pay-television heavyweight MultiChoice Group is facing an uncertain future.
MultiChoice South Africa CEO Calvo Mawela is confident the pay-television broadcaster can arrest the decline in the number of lucrative DStv Premium bouquet customers on its books.
Naspers has announced it plans to list its video entertainment business on the JSE while at the same time unbundling the unit to shareholders.
The controversial channel supply agreement between the SABC and MultiChoice has run its course, with the two broadcasters signing a new deal that allows SABC News and SABC Encore to continue to be broadcast on DStv.
An episode of TalkCentral that focused on the future of DStv was TechCentral’s most popular podcast in July 2018, statistics from platform partner iono.fm reveal.
