The Tanzanian Bakhresa Group of Companies is bringing Azam TV to Zimbabwe. The Bakhresa Group of Companies is owned and chaired by one of the wealthiest Tanzanians: Said Salim Bakhresa. The group of companies has dabbled their trade in food products, road transport services, and media among other things. Azam TV started broadcasting in 2013 and right now they are available in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Burundi and Uganda.
They offer a bouquet of over 85 channels. It seems there is a bit of everything for everyone as channels include: BBC News, Aljeezera News, Bloomberg, MTV Base, Nickelodeon, Bollywood content, African movies, Fox life, Fox Entertainment, Nat Geo Gold, Discovery Science, Discovery Investigation. On the sports front Azam has Fox Sports, Manchester United TV, Real Madrid TV and Liverpool TV.
Bakhresa Group representative, Yusuf K Kamau mentioned that they are ready to roll and are basically waiting for permission. He said, “The application procedures are already underway and we are in the process of ensuring that we meet all the requirements. We want to bring this product to Zimbabwe as soon as yesterday, so basically if we get the green light, we will unroll the project.”
The cheapest bouquet will be accessible for $5, whilst the most expensive will be going for $15 and will offer over 100 channels, apparently.
