MultiChoice is well-placed to be the platform of choice for video entertainment and consumer services across the African continent.
This was the message from the MultiChoice Group CEO, Calvo Mawela, at the company’s annual Showcase, held on 22 September 2022.
Attended by the media, MultiChoice executives, talent and other stakeholders, the Showcase offered a tantalising glimpse into the content customers on DStv, GOtv, Showmax and SuperSport can expect.
The theme for this year’s event was “A World of More”, speaking to how MultiChoice is evolving its offering to deliver value to its customers, beyond video entertainment.
It is about offering an integrated digital ecosystem where customers can access a suite of services that meet their unique needs.
