Cape Town – MultiChoice's DStv has lifted its self-imposed suspension of Nando's "Diversity" anti-xenophobia ad after Nando's took its money and its TV commercial to On Digital Media (ODM) earlier this week.

TopTV was willing to broadcast the TV advert on multiple TV channels and did so from Thursday.

Now DStv says Nando's and its TV commercial is welcome on MultiChoice's TV channels again.

MultiChoice yanked the Nando's TV commercial off the air three weeks ago, a few days after the SABC refused to broadcast it. then also declined the ad.

'Harmless parody'
