PROPAGANDA:CORD under the leadership of former prime Minister have castigated the Jubilee
govt for selling broadcasting licence to foreigners at the expense of local ones. they have vowed
to call for mass action against "muzzling of media "for their own (read Jubilee benefits"
FACT:The licencing of chines star times was done under Nusu mkate government,supported by
the then Minister for information hon.Poghisio cheered and officially launched by the former prime
minister Raila Odinga!
EVIDENCE:
26, 2012 by XINHUA
NAIROBI, Jul 26 Chinese firm StarTimes Media on Wednesday
officially launched its digital pay television service in Kenya after a
month-long successful signal testing.
StarTimes Media, which has a global subscription base of over 7
million viewers in China and Africa, will broadcast on Digital Video

Broadcast Terrestrial 2 ((DVB-T2) which is a digital TV broadcast


standard, with the signal being provided by Pan African Networks
Group.
************
Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga who launched the service lauded
StarTimes Media for investing in the country, saying that its entry will
help grow the broadcasting industry. The entry of StarTimes into this
market will serve as a boost to the broadcasting industry, which the
government recently reorganized to separate signal distributors from
content providers, Odinga said during the launch in Nairobi on
Wednesday evening. I am happy to note that StarTimes is
broadcasting on digital platform, which the government advocates
and is currently educating the public on.
Pan Africa Network Groups is the East African nations second
national digital TV licensee after state-owned Signet. The current free
to air TV is based on analogue broadcasting which is globally being
phased out by the end of 2015. Odinga said that the countrys
dedicated efforts to meet the global 2015 Digital switch over deadline
is real, adding that it is with the efforts of corporates like StarTimes
that will help the country realize this goal.
Pay-TV in Kenya has mostly
remained a preserve of South Africa s Multi Choice DStv service which
has exclusive rights to broadcast English Premier League to soccer
fans across Kenya and several parts of the Africa.
Late entrant challengers such as GTV and Smar TV which offered a
similar model have gone under in unclear circumstances and analysts
are keen to watch how StarTimes which plans to invest 75 million U.S.
dollars in the next 3 years will penetrate the market. Our entry into
this market is informed by research done over a period of 2 years,
which showed the existence of gap in the broadcasting industry,
where the penetration of Pay TV is very low and what is currently
available is out of reach for majority of the Kenyans, StarTimes
chairman Pan Xin Xing said.
The company will offer home entertainment and portable TV solutions
including car TV and mobile TV guaranteeing uninterrupted, crystal
clear audio and visual reception thereby guaranteeing content at the
comfort of consumers home as well as on the move.
Kenyas Minister for Information and Communication Samuel Poghisio
said more investors in the broadcasting sector present a positive
outlook for the broadcasting industry in the near future.
