Why KWESE TV Shut Down After 18 Months of Operation

Last updated on July 28th, 2021 at 11:34 pm

Kwese TV only operated for 18 months as it shuts down on August 6, 2019. The Parent Company, Econet Media cited the economic hardship and shortage of foreign exchange among other things in Zimbabwe for ending the project.

“We regret to announce the discontinuation of Kwesé TV Satellite Service with effect from 5 August,” Group CEO Douglas Mboweni stated while blaming Zimbabwe’s bad economic challenges with the country’s decision to switch from a multi-currency system to a local currency that sparked hyper-inflation.

  • 30 days Kwese TV Subscription price in Nigeria = N6,275
  • 7 days Kwese TV Subscription price in Nigeria = N1,850.
