JUST IN: DStv REFUTES Reports That It Is Shutting Down All Zim Accounts Subscribed In SA
Satellite broadcaster DStv has dismissed a message which is circulating on Zimbabwean social media platforms, particularly Whatsapp, which claims that DStv will be suspending all accounts outside South Africa which are subscribed in South Africa.
Below is a statement from DStv.
It has come to our attention that a hoax letter has surfaced in Zimbabwe alleging that MultiChoice South Africa has notified third party installers of a geolocation system being used to shut down illegal viewing. We wish to inform all our stakeholders that this is letter was not issued by MultiChoice.
We take piracy of our products and services seriously in order to protect our valued DStv customers, our business, the entertainment industry and society at large.
It is therefore important that our valued DStv customers subscribe in the correct country as rights for programming and channels are cleared for specific countries. Subscribing in other countries ultimately does not support the local businesses, which creates local employment and tax, and encourages local industry growth.
