Muvi TV, a local television station in Lusaka, has today launched its plus bouquet.

The Muvi TV plus bouquet that has over 40 channels is being sold at K90 while the Muvi TV standard bouquet costs K40.

These bouquets are beamed on the Muvi TV latest MPEG-4 decoders preparing the station for digital television migration.

Speaking at the official launch, Muvi TV Managing Editor Costa Mwansa disclosed that the viewership for his station now stands at 4.3 million people.

Mr. Mwansa said the Muvi television broadcasting in Zambia has not been easy in its 10-year journey from satellite to terrestrial broadcasting.

He said the launch will help increase the number of viewers to beyond 4 million.

Some of the new channels to be beamed are national geographic, kombat sport and Madrid TV, Liverpool TV both of which provide soccer coverage, BBC and Aljazeera among others.

This is in addition to Africa Unite, Muvi Muviz, Muvi Combo and Prism Africa which already exist on Muvi TV channels.

And Muvi TV Chief Marketing Officer Ronald Kombe disclosed that MPEG-4 decoders could be bought on cash and on hire purchase basis.

Mr. Kombe has since implored corporate organization to allow their workers purchase the decoders so that they could keenly follow current affairs, sports, kids, ladies and human interest stories.

Meanwhile, Azam Media Chief Executive Officer Rhys Torrington disclosed that his organisation in neighbouring Tanzania has partnered with Muvi TV in Zambia in order to increase content output to the already existing platform and ultimately give viewers a wider selection of television viewing.

Mr. Torrington further disclosed that 263,000 Azam decoders have so far been bought in Kenya and Rwanda following a huge investment in television broadcasting.

Meanwhile, some local journalists from both electronic and print media have won themselves decoders while others won themselves full paid-up bouquets after winning a grand raffle.

    • Me too, Muvi TV is another ZWD, too biased towards the UPnDN Party. It is a MAVI TV. I can’t subscribe to it. ZNBC will do just fine.

      ZNBC please move quickly implement the digital migration and get more better channels plz. We are ready to support our national broadcaster as long as you remain professional

  3. Congratulations Muvi TV as you take it a step at a time you’ll sure get where many subscribers will migrate to your service. I am no fan of the British Premier League, too bad for fans who wish you’d rush to acquire rights to incorporate it. Anyway I notice that the fans enjoy the BPL more while at watering holes!

  4. In terms of movies you are almost at par with DSTV and especially with this development, but if only you can televise the EPL, Laliga or one of the five big leagues in Europe. All in all we are happy for you and we are supporting you. This DSTV has exploited us for a long time! Wishing you all the best. This development has come at the right for some of us who are doing away with DSTV because their recent hike in subscription fees starting this month!

  5. Movie TV, this is a good move, congratulations on your notable improvement and attempt to move forward….., unfortunately most Zambians dont like educational programs, such as Natgeo, history, etc..its EPL, sports in general, soccer being number one…so just fight for rights to televise EPL or other competitive leagues, then you will see a drastic improvement in viewers
