Eight months down the line and Kenyans have gotten used to the fact that digital platform is here to stay and the acquisition of a pay TV decoder or a free to view decoder is no longer a choice but a necessity. Depending on customer preference, financial situation, viewership needs among other considerations, customers have the option of either of the two types of decoders.
In what was once a market dominated by DSTV, a lot has changed with new arrivals seeking to stamp their authority in this ever-increasing niche, with a promise to offer better services. Notable inclusions that are seemingly catching up fast with the trends in the market, engaging even the most revered service providers in a cutthroat battle for supremacy are easy to distinguish.
With the market taking form and the different service providers focusing themselves in what they know best, it has become apparent that if you want free viewership, Bamba is no doubt the best. For cost-effective channels, StarTimes will definitely suffice your needs and for an extra boost for a reliable internet connection aside from the clichéd international channels, ZUKU is hands down your preferred digital TV service provider.
That said, the increased demand for Zuku cannot go unnoticed. Needless to say, the large market share that Zuku controls is mainly influenced by the availability of the internet service. The dependable internet service has been adopted for varying purposes from large office functions, small businesses operations, and residential use. This has largely been attributed to low costs for the service, reliable connections with minimal downtime periods and varying offers/packages that are suitable for different market sizes.
The fact that you do not require a satellite dish to access your TV packages as well as the fiber connection means you will rarely have to worry about troubleshooting for signal issues.
Here are the packages on offer for the Zuku Fiber connection that are available in Nairobi and Mombasa regions.
