Arrest or even kill us but we will not stop using South African decoders – Malawians dare Multichoice

297

If they thought the statement in the newspaper with all the flowery and threatening language will move Malawians and eventually deter them from subscribing to DSTV in South Africa, Multichoice Malawi should think again.

Multichoice Malawi

Malawians ready to be arrested

In the week, Multichoice announced through the press that it will go on a hunt to comb out all Malawians who are using South African registered decoders. Multichoice warned in a strong worded statement that it will drag to court any person found providing and using the South African decoders.

However, in a united anger Malawians have rallied against Multichoice Malawi accusing it of being a broad daylight thief and a cheat that cannot tamper with the current system in which people are subscribing to South African services.

Much of the anger was brought out when Malawi24 exclusively published the news that Multichoice was planning to start the hunting of the ‘criminals’.

The post attracted over 450 comments and it is still trending with almost no one coming to side with Multichoice Malawi whom others think have simply lost their mind for failing to cash in on the Euro.

“Am not much conversant with law, under which law will Multichoice Malawi do that? Educate me please. Has Multichoice South Africa complained? What difference does it make buying any South African product to be used in Malawi? Mwasowa zochita eti….,” queried one Malawi24 folower.

“I can’t stop using RSA DSTV registered decoders, they are cheap….imagine a complete set of DSTV IN RSA is going at R799… and Compact bouquet is only R345…Come and arrest me….we are in FTA’s under SADC…you can’t do anything you are just an agent,” another remarked.

It is not known how Multichoice will enforce its orders.

  1. I have already lodged documents with the Anti-Corruption Bureau detailing why this company – MultiChoice and DStv – should COMPENSATE all its SUBSCRIBER ACROSS AFRICA for theft.

    Who gave them permission to use THE U.S. DOLLAR?

  2. Its better for Multichoice Malawi that we are buying from Multichoice RSA. They are one company only that managers in Malawi are colosal thieves. I have four friends who are using Bein sport decoders. With these decoders one is able to watch EPL, La Liga, UEFA Champ League for the whole year with only 72pin. Akapitiriza kutumbwa tiyeni tingopita ku Bein sport.
    What Multichoice Malawi is doing is a step torwards reducing profit for their mother in south africa. Ngati UK yachoka mu EU, therefore, a Malawian customer has right to dump Multichoice Malawi.

    Ngati zavuta angoseka ma office kuti zonse tizipangira ku south africa

  3. you want to monopolise our choices hahaaaaa mukunama poti, its high time mwakhala mikutibela mimatilipilisa ma channel oti c tionela you have to segment your services ine ndi makonda super sport mupange zoti ndi zilipila zampilazo basi apo bhiiii ndi zigwilisabe ya RSA yomweyi

  4. 514 rands full subscription almost k24 thousands Malawian kwachas’….yet Malawi fully subscription is 58 thousands…ndemuti yani spa ..right of choice basi

  5. Before making the arrests, which we are ready for, let me politely ask the Multi Choice lazybones to make a research if we have enough cells here in Malawi to accommodate all the RSA registered decoder owners…. Will the so called arrests boost their business?

  6. multichoice malawi is useless.imagine I paid on 10th May n on 8th June they disconnected. now I have a South African decoder. enjoyong more channels for less.infact im selling malawian decoder for 20,000 only.

  7. Its so expensive to pay in Malawi kwacha thats y pple r using their brains. For those who follow subscription in Malawi tell me hw much is it against R345 in Mzansi? Let pple decide, just do ur marketing strategy well

  8. in south africa the monthly fee is 300 rands which is cloz to 13 thousand malawi kwacha, so y shud we be dome to pay dstv for our parents, over than 30 thousanx kwachas? ma channel akeso ofanana thats senseless multi choice wl push forward no reverse gear

  9. Vuto ndi boma lathu amadziwa kuti multi choice imaba ma charges awo coz even ma Ministers and MPs amapanga subscribe komweko but they don’t see kuti akubeledwa, wopusa ndani? Muyambe door to door campaign yowona ma decoder a RSA muchekedwe muwone.

  10. Ife even kuntchito kwathu tinasiya kulipira because its very expensive. Tikulandira funding about 20million koma kulephera kulipira dstv, nanga kuli bwanji munthu wamba ngati ine? The only way is the South African way

  11. We don’t need agents kkk we pay direct here Wagwanayo business agent Multi choice Malawi kkkk kwasala a Immigration kkkk AFRICAN PASSPORT IS COMING SOON

  12. Please malawi govt and the minister responsible do something to protect the rights of ur citizen?this company is taking malawians for granted.in rsa,they use rands but why are malawians forced to pay in dollars while we use kwachas?the subscription is not stable and depend on how the kwacha is fairing.this is indeed sad and not fair.

  13. DSTV it’s time you change your business model other wise you will be closed down . That’s a warning that times have changed, change as well.

  35. Multi choice nanu munyanya,,, its too expensive here compared to SA…. ndalama inavuta iyi… simunati u wil arrest thousand of people ndinthu….mukalanda tikatenganxo……lol

  36. .how do they intend to do this. arrest them using what law of the Malawiian constitution.This is just hot air.The agreement is between them Multi choice Malawi and multichoice south africa.It has no legal bearing in Malawi

  37. MultiChoice is in RSA, the Malawi Company who calls themselves MultiChoice is just an agent of MultiChoice in RSA, probably you need to check how your company is registered in Malawi before you assume the role of a Law Enforcer which is not your responsibility. The company in Malawi is an interested party, hence the issue is already skewed. Monopoly type of business is not acceptable, you have to just look for ways of bringing down your rates to the same level as in RSA, or else quit the business and let others do it. You are not a law enforcer, get back to your role of a service provider.

  38. Ndipo sanati,ena nonso amane mukufuna kupanga subscribe mutiuze ife tilipo tikulipilirani kuno ku SA.zisiyeni mbalazo kumeneko zidya udzu ulendo uno.

  58. Asatikwane.Copy everything from Multichoice RSA and implement kuno.Otherwise the gap is too big.Azilipilitsa per Channel kuti tizisankha zolipila tokha koma kidzavuta

  59. The must pack and go because they don’t even televise our programs on multchoice we are watching south Africans on dstv. They should think twice before complaining. It’s too expensive here in Malawi but all channels they televise Nigerians and south Africans only so why is so expensive here. Our government is not protecting poor of the poorest on earth. ……… .. Malawians because they also stealing from us.

  60. Nzeru za business mulibe..mbuzi za anthu. You have a highly marketable product but you can’t even take advantage of your monopolistic position.

  61. Buying in Shoprite Malawi or Shoprite South Africa is the same thing Money goes to the same Account of Shoprite
