We are coming for you: MultiChoice to arrest Malawians using South African decoders and accounts

25

Multichoice Malawi which has seen a drop in subscription owing to their expensive prices has finally decided to go on a hunt to comb for all Malawians who are using South African registered decoders and accounts.

In a press statement released to the media, Multichoice has indicated that it is aware of the rising number of Malawians who are subscribing to Multichoice in South Africa and are paying for those accounts.

According to Multichoice, this trend is illegal as it violates copyright laws and also it puts at risk customers who get poor quality of services.

Malawians warned on using RSA registered decoders.

However, Multichoice has indicated that it is not just sitting down with its arms folded but it will be starting a manhunt of the businesses that are selling the South African services to Malawians. Multichoice has also indicated that it will hit at all the customers of that service and drag them to Court.

However in an interview with Malawi24 a dealer of the South African services laughed at the suggestion by Multichoice that he will be prosecuted for selling the South African services to Malawians.

“It is not my fault that most Malawians find Multichoice Malawi expensive, it is the fault of Multichoice Malawi,” he said.

The dealer then urged Multichoice Malawi to simply reduce its prices so that they fall in line with those of other African countries if they want to remain in business.

In recent years a number of Malawians have decided to subscribe to the South African accounts of Multichoice citing that their pay is low when compared with their Malawian counterparts.

  10. That’s a joke of the year from Multi Choice Malwi. I bought and subscribe to SA services and it is just super fabulous: far much less prices on buying the gadgets and subcription rates plus more channels in the package. Am a fan of wildlife and BCC Earth on Channel 184 (SA) is my favourite yet these thieving MW DStv providers don’t have it plus many more channels one can enjoy having paid SA’s compact subscription…… Sitikubera munthu. It’s our hard earned money. Simple survival Arithemetic for me: Premium SA subscription + extra view + my monthly rentals = Malawi premium subscription. In other words, I can’t afford DStv Malawi coz it’s far much beyond my earning powers

  11. Ndakhalako ndi anthu ambiri akunja ooma madandaulo awo amakhala pomwepo basi: Malawian products always expensive. This year ndikukagula RSA product: zotchipa ndinso zolimba. Musova ndi clear – clear wanuyo!!!

  12. Multchoice Malawi DSTV is a South African product and u always charge as if it’s ur own????? Kuba basi mtengo mumangositha tsiku mtsiku ngati mahule agalu inu …..

  13. Consumers right. A right to purchase the product you like at a price you can afford and of a good quality.
    Then student studying outside Malawi should be stopped. Patients travelling abroad for treatment should be seized.
    It doesn’t make sense. That one you are fighting a loosing battle. Don’t even dare start cause you ve lost already. …

  14. HAHAHA…MUMAESA NDINU MADOLO…ATAMBWALI SAMETANA…SIMUNATI MULIRA ZENIZENI..MMAYESA NGATI NDALAMA AMALAWI TIMANGOTOLA ETI!!! SHAME ON U.TIMANGISENI TIKATULUKA NGATI TAPHA MUNTHU.

  15. Ayamba kulira nawo awona kuti anzao pang’onopang’ono akulanda msika wawo and tinakuuzani ife kuti nanunso tsiku lina muzalira si izi bravo Star sat, Zuku, Azam as well as MDBN, my simple advice is that please just reduce your prices , free Super sport channels to other players and if you don’t change hence expect total downfall in the next two years.They have snatched away from you Bundesliga,Series A and Ligue 1 and next on the move will be LA liga and lastly Barclay’s. Tsitsankoni please mitengoyo to meet Malawian standards.

  16. HONESTLY ku Malawi everything is expensive for instance internet ku RSA ndiyotchipa ngati ulele the whole day munthu umaloga no stress,DSTV is R350 per month imagin

  17. Multi-Choice Malawi stop rendering your services to Malawians in foreign currency then you will discover that Malawians are not seeking the services from RSA. Koma mukapitiliza kutchaja mma US Dollars then forget about us, go konko ku Joberg’ko

  18. Hahahahahahahahahah….you are sick in the head!. On what grounds will you be making these arrests. In business a customer is free to chose from which ever supplier meets his/her needs. People have come to realise how crooked you are with your exobitant charges and poor quality services, no wonder they are now opting for alternatives. Compete or die is what i can tell you now. Dont threaten people with your foolish excuses,you have failed as a business to understand the business landscape of your industry. Reduce your prices to much those of neighbouring countries , thats what business is all about. We are ready to take you to task for any foolish move that you may do.

    Should we not get a better blanket from South Africa this winter because Chiperoni blankets are also available and locally made in Malawi?. Stop complaining and restrategise if you are to survive, otherwise you are gonne………

  19. ..Multichoice Malawi is a bunch of joke, just compete thus all. U aint yet on HD View yet and too exobitant aswell. Tell me how you gonna go about arresting people. They bought the decorder with their money and pays the accounts with their money too hahahaha!!!! Tomorrow i might hear Chipironi saying ..Dont buy blankets in RSA becoz we have seen a drop in sales, When Chipironi blankets imangososoka…we have freedom of choice, did you really think before posting this ridiculous news???….Man is sometimes a master of his fate..Drop Prices and compete thus pure business..Mbala inu etii…

  20. multichoice malawi are thieves they used to rip poor malawians now you come with a threat to malawians on a business thing? that is insane. Did you heard the South African dealer suggestions? that is the only way to go. reduce ur stinking prices if you want business.

  21. Kkkkkk mpaka kusekedwa eti? Kusonyeza kusadziwa business. Ife tidzilipira kuno Ku Joni. Muli mmadzi kulira simunati. Nzanuyo wakuuzani chomwe mungachite kuti mukhale ndi ma clients ambiri sanakubisireni. Lero tiululenso kuti even phone tikala Ku Malawi Ku sitigula airtime kumeneko ndipo timapanga looming in ma tarrif adula dziko lonse la pansi pamene dzikolo ndilosauka kwambiri. Miyeze iwiri tima loader airtime nkubwera Ku Malawi. Simutukuka mukhalira kuopsya mtima kumamanhitsa anthu. Vuto a Malawi sitidziwa business even nyemba zosasankhidwa bwino zili pamtengo wa first grade. Njerwa zimene zoipa kumangooda kuja basi kulibe standard brick ngati ya Kamudzu ija. Ka a Malawi Byulo of Standard ntchito yanu ndichani? Scale ya nyama yomanga. Ma rula oyesera nsalu osalongosoka. Lero ndi company yayikulu ngati multichoice kulira. Ine ndimaonera DSTV yanga nditalipira Ku RSA,Ku Hora Ku Mzimba. Ndi solar energy. Komwe inu simungapiteko. Mudalirabe.
