Kwesé TV has continued its premium channel acquisitions with the addition of international news leader Sky News International. Now Kwesé audiences across the continent can enjoy 24 hours of uninterrupted news and sports updates, as well as the latest analysis from Sky News specialists all across the continent through Kwesé’s multiplatform offering.
Recognised the world over as a world-class breaking-news service, Sky News provides impartial news reporting, appointment to view programming and documentaries celebrated globally for their objectivity and accuracy.
“Having this unrivalled international news channel as part of our programming line-up ensures that Kwesé audiences can be on the pulse when it comes to global news and trends.

Carrying through the concept of TV anywhere and everywhere, Sky News is available through Kwesé’s linear TV, internet and satellite based platforms.
