MultiChoice Africa Holdings has decided to immediately withdrawal DStv services from Malawi following the High Court injunction in the matter between MultiChoice Malawi and the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA).

"MCM does not offer the DStv service to the public and therefore cannot set or adjust tariffs for this service, a point repeatedly made to MACRA. As a result, the order handed down to MCM is incapable of being implemented by them but carries with it grave consequences for the directors and management of MultiChoice Malawi, including imprisonment," reads a part of the statement by MultiChoice Africa.

The matter in court is about Macra objecting to adjustment to DStv tariffs for which MAH describes Malawi as "an increasingly adverse regulatory environment" that has left it with no option but terminate DStv service indefinitely.

MAH has since asked customers to halt payment for the DStv service.
