Multichoice is in a competition with other video on demand platforms, and in a bid to stay relevant, they have decided to carve a niche for themselves.
According to MultiChoice Group Chief Executive, Calvo Mawela, multichoice is in an increasing competition from Over-The-Top (OTT) companies like NeNetflix and other growing Video-On-Demand platforms that are entering into Africa’s entertainment media market. Hence, repositioning its customer care in order to compete properly will be the right thing to do. In his own words; “The realignment is a response to the changing behaviour of customers, who are increasingly moving away from traditional voice calls and visits to walk-in centres and adopting new self-service and digital technologies to engage with the company


The video entertainment sector is seeing a rapid evolution with a growing number of players that have entered the industry. We have worked hard to minimise the impact of the business realignment on our people – those directly impacted by the process and their colleagues in the rest of the business.


This has not been an easy decision to make. But, in a business driven by advancing technologies, we must continue to drive efficiencies, yet be agile enough to adapt to evolving customer needs to ensure that we remain relevant, competitive and sustainable.


We must act decisively to align to the change in customer behaviour and competition from (over-the-top, or OTT) services (like Netflix) because if we don’t reposition now, we run the risk of being completely misaligned and we put everyone’s jobs at risk.”
