The battle for supremacy in the PayTV sector still rages on. Startimes has now spread its wings to 12 more towns in Kenya, making it a total of 15 towns currently covered. Previously, the newest PayTV provider had Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu in it’s leash but have since roped in Meru, Embu, Karatina, Nanyuki, Malindi, Kakamega, Webuye, Kitale, Bungoma, Eldoret, Nyeri and Nakuru.
Startimes was the first PayTV provider to go as low as Kshs. 500 per month for Digital PayTV and that includes the widest range of local channels among the PayTV providers. Startimes also added two channels, TLC, a lifestyle channel ans Discovery Science, yet another documentary channel across the board. With the deadline for analogue-digital migration globally, Startimes is quite well positioned for the uptake by new subscribers moving digital but seeking cheaper PayTV options.
