Tanzania set to suspend Multichoice's licence - here's why

TCRA says the firm has on several occasions failed to comply with its licence condition

The Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA) said Tuesday that the DStv and GOtv services provider has on several occasions violated its licence condition to exclude the free-to-air stations from its pay-TV services.

“In exercising its powers, the authority hereby notifies the general public that it intends to suspend all the licences issued to MultiChoice Tanzania Ltd for failure to comply with the authority’s orders and failure to adhere to the licence conditions including failure to exclude free-to-air television channels from among its subscription channels,” the statement read.

According to TCRA, in delivering the licensed services Multichoice Tanzania Ltd was not authorized by its license to include free to air television channels as part of its services in subscription channels.

On July 27, the regulator said it would suspend Star Media Tanzania Limited, providers of StarTimes, for charging clients to access free-to-air channels and refusal to the pay fine it was charged for the breach of law.
