Speaking at the anniversary celebrations on Thursday, MultiChoice Uganda’s General Manager Charles Hamya stated, “This is a fantastic achievement and the culmination of twenty years of hard work, innovation and investment. Over the last 20 years MultiChoice has become the number one video entertainment provider in the country and the first to build a permanent home, combining a staff work place and world class customer care environment for our subscribers.”

“Our new Headquarter is a tangible demonstration of our long term commitment to the Ugandan market which began with our launch of Uganda’s first pay television service at a time when most experts claimed that the Ugandan television market was too small and not yet ready to handle quality pay television services,” he added.

According to Hamya, the 20 successful years are as a result of the subscribers’ loyalty and support.

The main service hall which is manned by more than ten service agents, is a lot more spacious and equipped with state of the art technology including self-help computerized touch points that will ensure long queues are a thing of the past.

In addition, it has a dedicated demo lounge area that allows one on one interaction with service agents.

“This ensures that by the time a subscriber decides to purchase one of our products, he or she is fully conversant with how the new technology works from day one,” Charles stated.

Giving a speech during the celebration, the Regional Director MultiChoice, East Africa, Stephen Isaboke said opening this office marks the completion of the first phase of a strategic initiative started by the group that will see them open similar office facilities in each of the regional capitals.

“Our objective is to take our service delivery to the next level, consolidate our core services under one roof in each territory and make use of communications technologies to provide an increasingly personalized interface with our clients,” Isaboke said.

“This development will not only allow us to improve our operational efficiencies, but also allow us to free up resources and focus our energies towards improving quality and extending the reach of our Digital Terrestrial Network,” he added.

The Prime Minister congratulated MultiChoice for their longevity and commitment to the Ugandan Market.

“Not many companies in Uganda celebrate this type of longevity because they often fail to see the big picture and are overtaken by events. MultiChoice is evidently not just an investor, but an innovator, and the perfect example of how International investors should partner with Ugandan entrepreneurs to produce a world class product, which we can genuinely call our own,” the premier said.
