Aside

Last year in September,
StarTimes launched its
Satellite service called
StarSat to take on Zuku and
Multichoice’s DSTV. During
the launch, StarTimes also
made it easy for those with
dishes from other service
providers including the
defunct GTV to have their
Satellite Dish repositioned
and connect to a StarTimes
HD Decoder and thus access
the direct to home service.
StarTimes has today
revamped service and called
it StarTimes Satellite TV. This
was also followed by slashing
of prices for its various
packages and introduction of
a new package known as
Nova. Previously, the cost of
the satellite package was
Kshs. 6,499 which has been
lowered to Kshs. 4,499. The
users wishing to install the
full kit will need to acquire a
dish, LNB, 20 meters of cable
and accessories for Kshs.
2,000 with the Kshs. 2,499 for
the HD decoder and initial
subscription fees.
StarTimes also launched a
new package called Nova
which will retail for Kshs. 299
with access to 35 local and
international channels. The
company has dropped the
prices of its various bouquets
including the Super bouquet
which will now retail for Kshs.
1,799 from Kshs. 2,499 with
access to over 95 local
channels. Smart bouquet will
retail for Kshs. 899 down
from Kshs. 1,799 with access
to 67 local and international
channels. Other bouquets
include Chinese and Indian
retailing at Kshs. 1,799 and
Kshs. 899 respectively.
The slashed prices are a big
boon for consumers as the
Pay TV wars continue. DSTV
recently hiked the prices of
its packages with subscribers
of the premium tariff parting
with Kshs. 8,200 monthly
while Compact Plus pay
Kshs. 5,500. Compact
subscribers pay Kshs. 3,200.
Zuku’s premium plan satellite
costs Kshs. 2,399 for 97
video channels and 51 audio
channels per month, Zuku
classic sells for Kshs. 1,299
while Zuku Poa sells for Kshs.
799.
StarTimes sales Director
Anderson Gicheru noted that
the Company is keen on
ensuring affordability and
accessibility. “Our new
satellite television service
offer is expected to enable
more Kenyans to afford and
access digital television no
matter their location in the
country”, he added.
