MultiChoice has added Mozambique's Portuguese-language TVM Internacional channel to its DStv satellite pay-TV platform from Wednesday 19 June on channel 701 for DStv subscribers in South Africa, Mozambique and Angola.

TVM International, or TVM Internacional, is the international channel of Mozambique's national TV broadcaster, Televisão de Moçambique (TVM), broadcasting for 24 hours per day. The channel will showcase local programming featuring Mozambican culture, tourism and sports.

In South Africa TVMInternacional is available to DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus and DStv Compact subscribers, as well as on the DStv Portuguese stand-alone and Add on packages.

For DStv subscribers in Mozambique and Angola, TVM Internacional is available through the DStv Portuguese packages of DStv Bue, Grande Plus, Grande and Facil.

Marta Odallah, TVM Internacional director, says "The addition of TVM Internacional on DStv is in line with our objective to spread the social, political, cultural and sporting reality of Mozambique across our borders".

"This collaboration is a giant leap for both TVM and MultiChoice, and indeed a step in the right direction of broadcasting inclusivity for all Mozambicans".

Agnelo Laice, director-general of MultiChoice Mozambique, says "At MultiChoice we strive to find the right mix of content that resonates with our viewers.  The addition of TVM International onto the DStv platform is just one more way that we can play a role in supporting the growth of the local TV industry and creating lasting partnerships to uplift the local broadcasting industry to greater heights".

"Furthermore, we’re proud that we can provide a platform to showcase the Mozambican culture to other parts of Africa."
