KTN News

KTN News has finally gone regional. The Standard Group owned dedicated news channel is now available to all DSTV subscribers in the East African region.

All the DSTv subscribers in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Djibouti, Burundi, Sudan, Somalia and the Seychelles will now have access to the newly-launched 24 hour news channel. The move has placed KTN above NTV and the rest in regional reach with many Kenyans residing in working in the said countries being the key target audience.


KTN News’ primary focus is news, current affairs and information with content ranging from live debates, human interest stories, features, current affairs and documentaries. The channel also incorporates showbiz news, talk shows and live broadcasts.

The scope of the station is coverage from around Kenya, focusing on matters affecting the residents, business opportunities, their social scene, and some political news driven by the governor’s agendas among other issues.

KTN News is available on all packages on DStv channel 274.
