GOtv GM Felix Kyengo presents K24 Group Executive Director Granton Samboja with a GOtv decoder pre-loaded with 2 months FREE GOtv Plus subscription.
Kenyan pay-TV company GOtv and K24 have launched a digital migration partnership that will mean K24 viewers are rewarded with decoders daily in a bid to cushion its viewers ahead of the analogue switch-off .
Granton Samboja, executive director of K24 owner Mediamax Group, said viewers stand a chance to win three 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”,” said Samboja.
Felix Kyengo, GOtv general manager, said since the launch of the platform in Nairobi, in September 2011, GOtv has contributed to the migration process.
Kyengo lauded Mediamax for taking a prominent role towards educating and informing the public on the need to embrace this new development and switch to digital TV.
According the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK), digital migration will ensure the country complies with the worldwide analogue switch off deadline set for June 17, 2015.
The Nairobi analogue switch-off is set for Friday, December 13, though a High Court hearing of a petition for another delay, of which the Consumer Federation of Kenya (COFEK) is a sponsor, was set to be announced on Friday last week with no confirmations yet.
HumanIPO reported last week the majority of Kenyans believe the country’s digital migration should be postponed until June 2014.
The report by COFEK showed 64 per cent of respondents said digital migration should be pushed until June 2014, while 27 per cent said they were happy with the current date.
