The pay-as-you-go feature, aside from the availability of a huge selection of free to air channels, is one of the major reasons why I advise users to try out the new Kwesé TV and see for themselves.
Kwesé TV, unlike other available TV providers in South Africa, offers users a more flexible subscription rate and to be sincere, more value for their money.
With this TV provider, you won’t have to worry about missing out on your subscription because it provides you with an option to subscribe either for a few days, a week, or a whole month.
Below is a highlight of its best features.
Highlights of Kwesé TV Features
- Kwesé TV is a cable TV product much like DStv and was recently launched in South Africa as well as in other African countries by Econet Media Limited
- Kwesé TV, unlike DStv, allows a more flexible subscription solution. Users can choose to subscribe for a few days, a week or a whole month
- Kwesé TV offers a huge selection of over 74+ channels including various sport, movie, music, kids and travel channels
- Kwesé TV offers a huge selection of free to air channels that users can enjoy without any subscription. This can come pretty handy when you run out of subscription
- Kwesé TV also provides a parental control feature. This allows you to control your child’s viewing by locking those channels you may not want them to watch
- Kwesé pause, rewind, forward and play all allow you to control your content as much as you want. It also provides users with a reminder. The reminder feature reminds you of favourite shows so you don’t miss them and if you eventually do, you can use the Catch Up option to go back a few hours or days to watch the missed shows again
- Kwesé also provides Personal Video Recorder (PVR) option to let you record your favourite shows so that you can watch them at your own convenience
Cost of Kwesé TV Decoder in South Africa
Kwesé TV comes with a decoder, a dish and cables. You can purchase all of these from your nearest store or visit their official website to find a dealer close to you.
I advise you to visit the website to find a dealer close to you or better still if you can find one yourself, then purchase from them. When you purchase from dealers, you’d get a free set up as the cost of installation will be covered by the cost of the decoder and dish.
The complete package (decoder+dish+cable+remote) costs R$ 406. When you buy a new decoder, you’d also be given a full month subscription and will enjoy all 70+ channels for the first month.
Users who may want to switch from DStv to Kwesé TV need not buy the whole Kwesé package again. You can use a DStv dish with the Kwesé decoder. So, all you’d need to buy if you already have a DStv dish installed is the Kwesé Decoder. You’ll also get a one-month free subscription. The decoder only costs around R$ 213.
Kwesé TV Subscription Price in South Africa and How to Renew
Kwesé TV offers users flexible subscription plans. If you are one of those that always use your cable TV for a few days or travel out a lot, Kwesé might be your best option.
Unlike some TV providers that only permit full monthly subscription, Kwesé allows you to subscribe for a few days, a week or a whole month.
If you plan to travel out, you can choose to subscribe for the few remaining days or weeks. This way, you get to pay for only the days you actually use it.
The following are the available subscription options.
- 3 days subscription package – N990
- 7 days subscription package – R$ 69
- 30 days subscription package – N6275
The subscription renewal works just the same as all other cable TVs in South Africa. Kwesé provides both offline and online subscription renewal options for users.
To renew your subscription, visit any Kwesé approved agent with your decoder information and it will be renewed almost immediately.
You can also renew online via quickteller using the renewal option from the quickteller official website.
Kwesé TV App Review
This TV provider also offers users a mobile streaming service via an app. Kwesé TV app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store for Android OS and the Apple Store for IOS.
The app can be used to stream content from all channels — except the Discovery channel — as long as you have a valid subscription on your decoder.
The TV app is different from Kwesé iflix and you’ll need to pay a different fee in order to stream content on Kwesé iflix.
To enjoy Kwesé TV on your mobile, simply download the app and register or visit Kwesé official website with a dynamic browser like Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft Explorer to stream your favourite channels.
