MultiChoice Swaziland was established in 1995 as a franchise and, today, employs 17 individuals at offices in Mbabane, Manzini and Ezulwini. MultiChoice Swaziland’s network, including installers, translates into a significant economic impact and hundreds of sustainable jobs. In Swaziland, DStv customers can choose from five packages with more than 200 channels.
Ever since we opened our doors, MultiChoice Swaziland has displayed an unswerving commitment to the people of this country and to the communities in which we are rooted.
We’ve made accessing great content – produced all over the world and even right here in Swaziland – easier, and more affordable, than ever.
Working closely with the Ministry of Education and Training, we use the wonders of satellite technology to expose our young people to world-class learning materials through our MultiChoice Resource Centres.
I can state without fear of contradiction that we are a business that has played a particularly positive role in shaping the future of Swaziland. But I believe there is so much more we can do to enrich, inspire and uplift our communities. We can do so much more – together.
Message from the GM of MultiChoice Swaziland, Phumi Drummond
MultiChoice Swaziland provides full-time employment at our offices in Mbabane, Manzini and Ezulwini while our installers employ many more. By continually sourcing goods and services, and investing in local infrastructure, we have a sizeable – and growing – positive impact on the economy of our kingdom.
We support the local banking and telecommunications sector by enabling customers to pay their subscriptions through their banks, online or via their cellphones. In the process, we make it easier than ever before for our customers to interact with us.
Increasingly, thanks to DStv and M-Net, local musicians, film producers and other artists are being given the opportunity to strut their talents on a regional stage. Being part of a Pan-African entertainment company means that Swazi talent now has the chance to be recognised through platforms including the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist Awards and the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards.
Fostering a love of learning and using satellite technology as a powerful teaching tool are the philosophies that inform the MultiChoice Resource Centres (MRCs). There are currently 25 MRCs all over Swaziland which provide thousands of learners and teachers with exceptional content from the DStv educational bouquet.
