In early 2009, StarTimes won the bid of National DTV test project founded by Kenyan government, and completed the construction of this experimental system in Nairobi, capital city of Kenya in December 2009. President of Kenya, Mr. Kibaki and the relevant senior government officials attended the opening ceremony.
The success of the project is fully embodying StarTimes’ experience and ability in DTV system construction. People in Nairobi are available to enjoy clearer and smoother TV programs relying on this system only by purchasing a STB from StarTimes.
StarTimes signed a cooperation agreement with Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) on September 29, 2010. The two sides reached a consensus on pay TV operation business, which marks the official beginning of StarTimes as a DTV operator in Kenya.
