Default Credit report

I pulled my credit report from Transunion earlier this week, and Multichoice is listed as a credit provider on my name. I pay cash in advance for my dstv, I have never had an account with them, not even a debit order. Why do they appear as a credit provider on my credit report?

This has been nagging at the back of my head all day. Really seemed odd, but I think I have a good guess to offer since MC have been slow to attend to this.

We know that MC are registered as a financial services provider, or something to that effect.
That would include the right to offer credit, even though they don't.
It's also going to involve them with certain governing bodies / organisations, so they may be mandated to submit reports to the likes of Transunion.
