Econet Zimbabwe’s subsidiary Econet Media has been granted three broadcasting licences. These were granted by the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ). The three licences are for Web Casting, Video On Demand and Content Distribution.
The Content Distribution Licence will allow Kwese TV to operate legally since the new broadcaster cancelled its contract with Dr Dish. Initially Kwese TV launched using Dr Dish’s licence until the two companies fell out and parted ways. This left Kwese without a broadcasting licence.
The notices for the licences were published in state media.
