DStv has now officially dismissed a letter that is circulating on social media about shutting down DStv South African accounts being used in Zimbabwe.
DStv said, "It has come to our attention that a hoax letter has surfaced in Zimbabwe alleging that MultiChoice South Africa has notified third-party installers of a geolocation system being used to shut down illegal viewing. We wish to inform our stakeholders that this letter was not issued by MultChoice.
"We take piracy of our products and services seriously in order to protect our valued DStv customers, our business, the entertainment industry and society at large.
"It is therefore important that our valued DStv customers subscribe in the correct country as rights for programming and channels are cleared for specific countries. Subscribers in other countries ultimately does not support the local businesses, which creates local employment and tax, and encouraging local industry growth."
