You are also required to pay the access fee and have a high-speed stable internet connection.

Last month, MultiChoice Kenya and Azuri Technologies launched a pay-as-you-go solar TV package through a partnership aimed to bring DStv content to off-grid households in Kenya.

The partnership bundles Azuri’s TV400 product, the 32” solar-powered TV and household energy solution, with the DStv HD decoder to offer customers access to entertainment, local and international news, documentaries, and educational content.

 “By expanding the choice of content available to even off-grid customers, we are taking another step in shrinking the gap between households with and without the grid.” Simon Bransfield-Garth, CEO of Azuri said.
