The wealth of information, entertainment and education platforms on DStv was brought into the spotlight at MultiChoice Zimbabwe’s 2022 content showcase, where everything from Big Brother to the FIFA World Cup came into focus.
The showcase which was hosted at The Venue in Harare was aimed at highlighting current and future programming on DStv, giving guests a preview of a wide range of local, regional and international content of broad appeal to Zimbabwean audiences.
MultiChoice Zimbabwe publicity and public relations manager Liz Dziva said the showcase highlighted that Zimbabwean DStv viewers had access to some of the most important broadcast content available in the world and that it was intended to continue providing leading-edge programming across a wide range of content genres.
There was huge interest at the showcase in the 2022 FIFA World Cup soccer tournament in Qatar, for which DStv’s SuperSport has exclusive broadcast rights in Africa for all 64 matches. This will be one of the biggest highlights of the year, running from November into December. At the showcase a panel discussion was convened to focus on the tournament and its outcome.
With Big Brother always a popular subject in Zimbabwe, good news came with the announcement that a Clash of the Titans would be coming soon, featuring an innovative battle between Big Brother Mzansi and Big Brother Naija contestants as a continental first.
Another highlight already being broadcast on M-Net was the House of the Dragon series, a spin-off of the hugely successful Games of Thrones series which garnered a massive international following, including among Zimbabwean audiences.
MultiChoice Zimbabwe founder Peter van Deventer told the gathering about the history of the DStv brand in Zimbabwe and highlighted the commitment to ensuring as wide an audience among Zimbabwean viewers as possible, with value for content according to the bouquet acquired by the customers.
The showcase was also addressed by MultiChoice Zimbabwe marketing manager Gerald Ngonyamo and 3Ktv general manager Emmanuel Nyamayadenga, who spoke of recent developments that have added value to DStv, including the addition of more Zimbabwean channels, 3Ktv and ZTN Prime.
“This event was a varied and exciting platform for showcasing current and future programming on DStv, with the assurance of a mix of local, regional and international content to cater for all viewer tastes,” said Ms Dziva.
“We are excited about the coming year and we discovered that for viewers of DStv Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Family, Access and Lite there is something for everyone and something about which to be equally excited.”
