East Africa: Tigo Partners with DStv to ease Payments

Investment

In Tanzania, mobile company Tigo (part of Millicom International Cellular S.A., and established in 1994 in the country), has partnered with DStv to provide Tigo Pesa registered customers to subscribe to the television services using their handsets.

Under the partnership, services which can be accessed include Compact, Compact Plus or Family.  Tigo subscribers will no longer need to go to DStv offices to queue for payments of subscriptions and thereby save their precious time. All Tigo subscribers need to do is to register for free with the Tigo Pesa service through any of Tigo Pesa agent's across the country, he said. Once registered, the subscribers will start accessing the Tigo Pesa menu by dialling *150*01#.
