Football fans in Kenya have all the reasons to look forward to the 2018 Fifa World Cup, which kicks off in less than months’ time, thanks to MultiChoice.
This after the pay TV channel launched 2018 Fifa World Cup viewing experience that guarantees their subscribers viewership of all 64 matches live on SuperSport.
MultiChoice has also made a commitment to give its customers an unmatched front-row viewing to the global showpiece through DStv and GOtv.
Speaking during the official launch of their football viewing experience to its stakeholders, MultiChoice Kenya Managing Director Eric Odipo said they will deliver great value to their subscribers with an unmatched viewing experience on TV and mobile devices for the biggest and best moments of the World Cup from Russia.
“MultiChoice’s key priority is to put customers’ needs at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to deliver value through the best football tournament experience on TV to our customers live and in HD glory on SuperSport,” said Odipo.
“We constantly strive to deliver value for money to our customers by offering them a little something extra to their viewing including a wide variety of the best local and international content available from around the world with the 2018 FIFA World Cup being one of them,” he added.
Active DStv subscribers on all packages will watch all 64 games of the World Cup live and in full HD experience on three dedicated SuperSport channels.
