Econet media is launching a 24-hours, Free-to-Air (FTA) sports channel in Rwanda with Kwesé sport.
The channel will also be available in many countries including the DR Congo, Benin, Togo, Uganda, Ghana, Angola and Tanzania. Five more countries are to receive the Kwesé premium content this year.
Kwesé Free Sports channel is the first FTA sports channel with 24 hours’ coverage of premium content. Many leagues have an exclusive partnership with the channel such as English Premier League football, NBA basketball, Formula 1, the Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC), Spanish Copa Del Rey football, and English Premiership rugby.
The channel will be available on every FTA set-top box (STB) in available countries
“Rwanda is a very important market for Kwesé Sports and we are glad that we have now got our station on air,” said Joe Hundah, Econet Media CEO. “This is a young vibrant country with people who are passionate about sports.”
Kwesé Free Sport will also air local productions.
