About MultiChoice  Zimbabwe

MultiChoice Zimbabwe is a franchise owned by Skynet (Pvt) Ltd which employs over 140 Zimbabweans. Operating from two offices in Harare as well as from Bulawayo and Mutare, we partner with a distribution network that consists of more than 100 installers who, in turn, employ hundreds more.

Backing our people on the ground is a call centre staffed by highly-trained individuals. DStv customers in Zimbabwe have a choice of six affordable packages, offering a total of more than 200 channels.

Every day we listen to our customers, to what they want and need. And then we go to work to deliver on their expectations. Over the years we’ve kept giving our customers more: more great programmes, channels and choice. And we keep putting more into our education initiatives and, through Zambezi Magic, giving our Zimbabwean creative talents more opportunities. At MultiChoice Zimbabwe we work with many people who, like us, see opportunities where others see only obstacles. Together, let us recommit ourselves to using the power of entertainment to enrich and uplift, to create even more opportunities for all.

How we create social value

MultiChoice Zimbabwe’s economic impact extends beyond the millions of US dollars we pay in wages every year. Millions more are spent on our supply chains and on keeping our customers enthralled with the power of our entertainment.

Growing Zimbabwe’s creative industries

M-Net plays a key role in fostering Zimbabwean filmmaking and creative talent.  Zimbabwean shows aired on Zambezi Magic since 2015 include Wedding Diaries, Makosi Today, Celebrate Life, Tonight with Zororo, Wine and Dine with Tumi, Zambezi News and The Arthur C. Evans Show. Smaller production houses and freelancers have also had their career prospects enhanced by having their talents showcased across the country and further afield on the DStv channels.

MultiChoice Zimbabwe is one of the country’s biggest supporters of the entertainment and arts industries. Our sponsorships make possible the Zimbabwe International Film Festival, the Shoko Festival, the DStv Ngoma Awards (showcasing the best in local advertising) and the Celebrate the Children Sports and Arts Festival.

Enriching lives

Through the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards, MultiChoice stimulates a passion for satellite technology among young people as well as fostering their ambitions. Zimbabwe has produced two winners thus far namely; Joseph Mahiya from Hellenic Academy who won the essay category in 2014. Part of his prize was a trip to France which included witnessing a rocket launch in French Guiana. The following year, Mallon Marume from Mutare Boys’ High School travelled to Paris and onwards to a satellite construction site after winning the awards’ poster category.
