Foremost digital television company, StarTimes has launched the first of its kind 2-in-1 combo decoder in Kenya, in a move to change the pay TV landscape in Africa and offer surplus entertainment access to subscribers.
The new innovative product, the first of its kind in Africa, is equipped with world’s latest decoder technology to combine effectively for the first time the features of both digital terrestrial television (DTT) and digital satellite direct to home (DTH) digital television technologies on a single device.
The 2-in-1 combo decoder is a game changing product from StarTimes and it was deliberately designed with latest global technology to lavish subscribers with unprecedented access to digital television and entertainment. Interestingly, this new combo decoder works with both antenna and dish and offers channels on both for the price of one. It also grants our esteemed customers access to over 100 channels across the genres with an enhanced high definition (HD) picture quality.
StarTimes strives to ensure that with a single decoder customer enjoys access to all digital television channels and contents available and this new decoder is expected to replace the traditional single decoder model. By default, both the Digital DTT and DTH has comparative advantages but with combo, StarTimes subscribers enjoy the combined strength of both. DTT is embraced as a model for its affordability, low weather interference, portability, more local channels, easy to set up and mobile friendly while DTH is desired for its sharper and clearer images, higher number of international channels, resilience and widespread strength in remote areas.
