To complement the offer, the Pay Television Company says it also will extend one-month free access to the top bouquet for the new terrestrial and satellite platform subscribers.
StarTimes Regional Marketing Director Mr. Aldrine Nsubuga noted that that the company has made great strides towards ensuring the initial cost of device acquisition is affordable to the majority of Kenyans as it seeks to achieve its goal of ensuring majority of households have access to digital television.
“We are impressed by the headway we have made so far in making it possible for Kenyans to access digital television be they in urban or rural areas. The move to extend a price reduction for our set-top boxes is, therefore, continuity in this effort as we seek to make it more affordable to not only acquire but also access our premium television content,” said Mr. Nsubuga.
StartTimes says it has progressively looked to offer the most affordable pay television service in the country through affordable devices and monthly subscriptions.
