Is Econet Media ready to invest another 1.2 million US dollars to support its Pay TV platform - Kwese? The answer is yes! According to the website Techzim.

Techzim said a leaked Econet Media 2016 business plan indicates that Mr Strive Masiyiwa would invest the new money, with a large chunk of it going into exclusive content.

According to the business plan (you may download a copy of it here), Econet Media plan to then deliver the content to subscribers via cutting-edge satellite and fibre-optic infrastructure.

Kwese TV recognises that even as it is already active in some countries, it still needs to gain market traction in Nigeria and South Africa.
