GOtv and Mediamax Group – which operates K24 TV channel – have launched a digital migration Christmas promotion meant to ensure Kenyans enjoy a smooth transition, 9 days before the planned Nairobi Analogue Switch-Off.
Announcing the deal, Mediamax Group executive director, Granton Samboja said K24 viewers stand a chance to win 3 decoders daily as the broadcaster takes a lead to enhance the understanding of the impending signal switch-off to their listeners and viewers.
“We shall carry out a simple trivia question regarding digital migration daily and the answer should be sent to the K24 short code 20001 starting with the word “Digital”, revealed Samboja.
All winners shall be directly notified the following day. Listeners are also encouraged to tune in to Mediamax radio subsidiaries – Milele, Kameme, Mayian and Meru FM stations.
Come Friday 13 December 2013, the Government of Kenya is set to migrate Nairobi residents from analogue to digital TV transmission.
According the Communication Commission of Kenya, Digital migration will ensure that the country complies with the worldwide analogue switch off deadline of 17th June 2015. The migration to Digital Television broadcasting is a Government initiative resulting from the decision made at the Regional Radio Conference of 2006 in Geneva, Switzerland (RRC-06).
GOtv decoders offer viewers a convenient migration option as it has both pay TV and Free-To-Air (FTA) choices on a single set-top box without the need to acquire an extra box.
Moreover, for those interested in FTA channels, only a convenient payment plan of 2 instalments is available depending on one’s pocket.
The cost for the first instalment is Kshs 3,399 which includes a decoder and 2 months GOtv Plus subscription. The second instalment of Kshs 2,600 is due at the end of the 2 months for those not able to continue with pay TV.
GOtv pay bouquets are affordable and are currently going for Kshs 599 per month for over 20 PAY AND over 30 FTA channels while the second package GOtv Plus goes for only Kshs 849 per month and offers over 30 pay channels and over 30 FTA channels designed to keep your family entertained with great news, movies, kids programming and sport.
