Some said the broadcaster should try other means including making its services prepaid so that those who want to have access to them have to pay first.

Some suggested a partnership with other service providers including Multichoice (DStv) saying many people who have access to ZTV do so via DStv.

There has been concern over the quality of content from the state-controlled broadcaster which is also accused of publishing propaganda.

Viewers have been calling for media reforms to ensure that more TV channels are opened.
