Startimes Introduces DTT Services in Coastal Counties

Startimes, a leading digital TV service provider, has expanded its Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) services to Kwale and Kilifi counties.

This expansion aims to provide enhanced television services to customers in these regions, who will now be able to access Startimes channels through aerial decoders.

In Kwale County, the areas that will benefit from the new DTT services include Tiwi, Ukunda, Msambweni, Shimoni, Vistagalaweni, Lunga-Lunga, Romisi, Geazi, Mbegani, Mwadimu, Muliloni, Gifyonzo, and Ndaweya.

In Kilifi County, the areas that will benefit from the new DTT services include Watamu, Matsangoni, Kilifi, Barane, Jaribuni, Thuva, Takaungo, Dindiri, Bomani, Chasimbi Hills, Kibaoni, Kaloleni, Mbuyuni, Kikambala, and Mtwapa.

According to Myke Mwai, the head of PR and Content Syndicate at Startimes, the recent launch signifies a significant milestone in the company’s mission to bring digital TV to more households across Kenya.

He said that the expansion of DTT services to the two Counties will provide a range of Startimes channels to new customers, enhancing their viewing experience with a variety of entertainment, news, and educational content.

“Startimes customers with Aerial Decoders in Kwale and Kilifi counties can now watch Startimes channels and access PANG as well,” Mwai stated.

He noted that this initiative is part of Startimes’ broader strategy to increase its market presence and improve digital TV accessibility in underserved regions.

“Residents in these areas will now have access to a wide range of digital channels, which promises to enhance their television viewing experience significantly. The introduction of DTT services in these regions is expected to boost local entertainment options and provide a more diversified media landscape,” Mwai added.

This development follows closely on the heels of PANG’s recent expansion of its broadcasting capacity in Kenya, marked by the acquisition of four additional television frequencies.

This acquisition increased PANG’s total assigned frequencies from 125 to 129, solidifying its position as the broadcaster with the most frequencies in the country.

The new frequencies were secured from the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA), the regulatory body responsible for overseeing the allocation and use of broadcasting frequencies in the nation.
