Kwese TV announced on its Malawian facebook outlet that it will soon bring Kwese play to Malawi. The device, already launched in other African nations, relies solely on the internet for connection.
Summarising how the Kwese TV website explains about Kwese play, it is a streaming service that lets a user watch various content through apps. These apps are accessed by a device that looks like a decorder, that is connected to the screen.
For instance, if a user wants to watch YouTube, they will access the YouTube app on the device and will be able to stream videos. Likewise, if a user wants to watch Netflix, they will access the app and stream content.
Basically, Kwese Play brings all streaming apps into one device, connecting the device to your TV screen. Various reviews from Youtube have commended the innovation as ‘a device that turns the TV screen into a smart screen’. As people may think the innovation is no different than paying for the internet and streaming on a laptop, it should be remembered that a laptop’s sole purpose is not for streaming, so the family viewing is restricted to a particular laptops availability and permission from the particular laptops owner.
Kwese TV has been in Malawi since late 2017 and has since been remarked as one of the mos affordable TV packages in the country.
