Kenyan FTA broadcasters pull out of StarTimes and GOtv

Kenyan free to air broadcasters, KTN and Citizen, have stopped transmission over pay-TV platforms, GOtv and StarTimes, over alleged discrepancies in carriage contracts.

However, despite the pull out, viewers on the two platforms will still be able to access the two channels from the government-run distributor, Signet, which is also available on both pay-TV platforms.

“We apologise for the interruption in the signal on the channel – we are currently in the process of renewing our carriage contract with the channel. We hope to have the channel back in this slot as soon as possible,” read the message projected by the two broadcasters.
