Kiliye Kiliye digital television starts pay service

Malawi Digital Broadcasting Network Limited (MDBNL) popularly known as Kiliye Kiliye television has introduced a pay service of K6000 (US$40) as subscription fee per month to its viewers in order to view foreign entertainment content which it has acquired.

Director of Marketing and Public Relations, John Mchilikizo

Director of Marketing and Public Relations, John Mchilikizo said Friday that the company has reached at an advanced stage in the preparations and will soon announce to the public on the procedures.

The pay service will give an opportunity for the company to service the foreign channels; grow as well as sustaining itself.

“The revenue realised from this service can be invested in infrastructure expansion to ensure that the remaining parts of the country which did not have access to terrestrial television before are
covered,” he said

He added all television channels shall remain free regardless of one’s subscription fees thus customers who do not want to be accessing the foreign content or those whose monthly subscription has expired will
still be able to watch local television channels for free.

Mchilikizo indicated that there will never be disconnection of any kind for local channels.”Customers who wish to subscribe for pay service are encouraged to visit their offices in all major cities of Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu to get a sim card which will enable them to access foreign content.”

Some of the foreign contents to be shown include Fox, Fox Life, Fox Sports 1and 2, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, BBC World and Babylr.

The company’s primary priority is to provide free television services to all Malawians and currently it provides Free-To-Air (FTA) signal distribution service to all local licensed television in the country,
he said.

A normal person can not pay K6,000.00 for only 7 channels wake up guys and $40 is not equivalent to k6,000 please do your mathematical properly. As a suggestion you were suppose to start with K2,000 not K6,000

I, too dont think people can waste their K6,000 on the mentined international channels. They better add Nollywood not forgetting cartoon channels. We can be forced to pay subscription with pressure from our kids and women who like watching those channels. Apo bii! Mmmmm

If you don’t add a Nollywood channel this will be a disaster. Is this the reason why you have forced multi choice to remove all local channels on Gotv so that you sell as many decoders as possible to people who want to view local channels.
