Kwese TV Decoder:
Kwese TV Decoders are available in all countries where the product has been launched and licensed to operate. It is expected that more countries will be added to their scale of operations as time goes on. Whichever way you want to install Kwese TV in your home or office, you must make use of the Decoder. If you have a dish that certified Engineers have deemed fit to work with Kwese TV, you may connect right on; otherwise, you will have to get a new dish. Kwese TV has branded dishes that can be purchased from local Kwese TV service providers.
Kwese TV decoders are actually not exorbitantly priced. A Kwese TV decoder costs not less than $27, while the price could be higher if one is purchasing a satellite dish alongside it. For a decoder, satellite dish and installation by an Engineer, the price is $49.85. Converting this figure to your local currency following the current currency conversion rates in your country will give you an idea of how much it’ll cost in your local currency. For example, in Nigeria, it will cost around 9,730 naira to purchase a Decoder, while the Decoder plus the satellite dish and installation charges altogether cost around 17,970 naira only. This prices may be slightly higher or lower, depending on your location within the country and the dealer you decide to purchase from.
Kwese TV Subscription Price:
Kwese TV’s subscription plans and prices prove it to be very affordable, considering the quality of services they offer. Upon their launch into the Nigerian broadcasting and TV services market, they introduced an ultra-flexible set of subscription plans to suit the needs of different kinds of individuals. The plans are:
3-day subscription plan, which costs 990 naira;
7-day subscription plan, which costs 1,850 naira;
And the 30-day subscription plan, which costs 6,275 naira only.
In addition to that, the first 30 days after purchase are free for all subscribers: that is, every fee paid for purchasing the Decoder and/or satellite dish also includes a free one month subscription. Afterwards, they will have to pay the required amounts to access Kwese TV services.
Many have been used to DSTV’s monopoly for years now, and even the introduction of HiTV, StarTimes and GoTV only helped them to grow stronger. However, with Kwese TV on the scene now, it appears that the tables have turned. Kwese TV is the new face of African broadcasting.
