KBC & K24 resume analogue transmission in Kenya

Two free-to-air channels in Kenya, KBC and K24, have resumed analogue transmission. The channels have stated that Kenyans do not have set-top-boxes to receive digital signals.

NTV, KTN and Citizen TV have received court permission to continue in analogue format until a digital television infrastructure is in place.

Communications Authority of Kenya has accused the three media firms for disrupting transition to digital broadcasting. It has also withdrawn the temporary authorisation issued to them under a consortium identified as Africa Digital Network.
