I have seen so many updates more so in the social media rubbishing KTN, NTV, Citizen and QTV for their stand concerning the Digital Migration and swift off. What Kenyans are missing out is that the four media houses have no problem with going digital. In fact, they are in the process of acquiring their set-boxes which shows their willingness to go digital.
It should also be noted that, the Global digital migration is months away so Kenya is not late. The four media houses have promised to go digital before the global deadline and I do not see why the Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) is hurrying them to migrate before they finalize the acquiring process. Whether CA action has malicious reasons behind it or not the likes of Dennis Itumbi Know better?
The digital TV set-top boxes ordered by KTN, NTV, Citizen and QTV will be of benefit to Kenyans. They will offer services that will be of benefit to the Kenyan culture and community at large. The digital TV set-top boxes ordered by the four will be quite different from what is offered by Startimes, GOtv and others. As indicated in Humanipo, The KTN, NTV, Citizen and QTV digital TV set-top boxes will be sold at a one-off price of between Kshs 2,000 and Kshs 2,500 .
KTN, NTV, Citizen and QTV digital TV set-top boxes will also allow consumers to access their free-to-air channels and also access add-ons like Internet services which are not offered by other companies.
Note: Citizen tv ADN decoders and safaricom’s thebigbox digital decoders are available countrywide for purchase. Find below a link to their review
