Pay Television Company StarTimes Media has cut the cost of its top Premium television bouquet. The bouquet with access to over 76 local and international channels will now retails at just Ksh 1,499 per month from 1,999 reflecting a 25% saving for subscribers ahead of the Easter celebrations.
The Company is giving its subscribers an early Easter gift encompassing access to 13 Premium Pay Television channels at no cost for seven days. StarTimes subscribers will from the 11th to 17th April be able to enjoy exclusive entertainment.
The move seems to be a reaction to the recent problem of subscribers now having access to the local FTA channels after court ordered that the platform owners not distribute content for free without paying the content owners. The Court of Appeal also ruled that the award of Digital Distribution License to PANG was not in order a move that has been appealed by the government.
The exclusive channels that will be available on the StarTimes platform during the open week will include Star Novella E1 (Series), Star Triple P (Music), Star one (Movies), Star Africa 2 (Movies and Series), Fox news, Setanta Africa (Sports), NBA TV (Sport), Star Movies 1+2, Star Series E1 (Series), Star Plus (Drama), Star Gold (Movies), Bloomberg (News), JimJam (Kids) are new and limited to the StarTimes Pay Television platform.
