Airtel Kenya is going into the entertainment market with the launch of Airtel TV.

The app is a streaming service that we have come to experience from other vendors. However, Airtel TV is the first of its kind, that is, the first mobile operator to launch such a product.

According to the carrier, customers who will download the app will have access to entertainment content, both from the local and international markets.


The app is available for both Android and iOS users.

Customers will enjoy access to a range of content from top studios that will include movies, drama, documentaries, music and cartoons.

This includes:
• BBC
• Nickelodeon
• Universal among others

The services can be accessed without a subscription.

All you need is an Airtel Kenya mobile number and a smartphone that you will then use to buy data and download the app and enjoy watching at that instant in your smart device.


“Airtel TV has no monthly subscriptions and is accessible as long as you have data for streaming,” says Airtel Networks Kenya Ltd CEO Prasanta Das Sarma who expressed excitement upon launching the new product.

How to install Airtel TV app:

  • Go to Android store or iOS App store
  • Search for Airtel TV
  • Fill in the registration form with an Airtel phone number and email address.
  • Insert the OTP (one time password) sent to your mobile phone to complete the registration.
  • Data charges apply

  1. But this should come as a wake up call for you to stabilize your networks. It gets boring when you are at the climax of that movie, music or documentary and the network signal gets down instantly.

    That has been the trend of your network!

    • This is exactly my thoughts. Airtel will soon realize that the negligence they have been doing to their network maintenance and upgrades will come to eat them. This project cannot be successful without a consistent stable network. They know that they have a problem as countless customers have been complaining. The problem is possibly caused by increased number of customers without corresponding upgrade of network infrastructure to accommodate them.
