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.
However, Multichoice 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 also indicated that it will hit at all the customers of that service and drag them to Court.
