Anti Piracy on DStv and GOtv

Piracy is a crime!

What is DStv Sambaza (cable piracy)?
This occurs when a legal customer shares his DStv signal via cable to one or more neighbours and charges or collects a subscription fee from secondary viewing parties.

How do you know that you are receiving DStv Sambaza?
You will change DStv channels from your TV set directly and not via a decoder remote.

Please help us stop this!
Call MultiChoice Tanzania to report this crime and it will be treated with absolute confidentially. Connect legally to DStv! Whatever your budget, there is a DStv package designed to meet your family viewing needs. Don't be caught on the wrong side of the law. You face a big fine or even imprisonment.

Pubs/clubs and hotels (commercial piracy)
The showing of DStv channels in a commercial or public place including pubs/bars/hotels, sports centres, housing estates etc. without obtaining a valid commercial license from MultiChoice. Convert your DStv license to commercial license immediately to avoid penalties or litigation.

Public viewing
MultiChoice packages cater for a range of DStv viewing requirements and we have subscription options designed to meet the commercial needs of your business. DStv can be licensed for use in lounges, lodges, hospitals, hotels, hostels, resorts, canteens, video halls, sports centres, pubs and clubs. Any public viewing which is not properly registered as a commercial subscription with MultiChoice will contravene local and international copyright laws – therefore DStv cannot be screened in public facilities under a home television package meant for domestic viewing.

Should you have any doubts on the package that is right for your business,
