From tonight going onwards, Zimbabweans will join the world to watch the ongoing Olympics games, as Econet Wireless Zimbabwe’s Kwese Sports signs a mega deal with ZBC, Zimbabwe’s sole and state owned television broadcaster.
After recently signing up satellite decoders, Kwese Sports, has been signing significant deals with international sports channels, accessing rights to stream world class quality programming online, and the latest partnership will see them move their content from the IP based viewership to satellite broadcasting and the terrestrial VHF channel under ZBC.
The deal will see Kwese sports delivering content to ZBC throughout the Olympics games, to connect millions of viewers on to the platform, a major relief to those who never had any alternative means to watch the prestigious world tournament.
For those watching from satellite recorders or Free To Air (FTA) decoders, here is the frequency.

Most Zimbabweans today were ecstatic to actually watch the program broadcasting on ZBC TV, the sole national broadcaster which has been facing serious financial and organisational problems,which has resulted in poor program and lack of content as the institution has gone for the broke.
We however could not easily ascertain the nature of the agreement between Kwese sports and ZBC TV, but a source at Econet Wireless Zimbabwe confirmed that this is a major milestone for them and the local broadcaster.
