Safaricom mobile TV for Kenya
June 18, 2009
Safaricom subscribers in Kenya can now watch DStv's menu of TV programmes from certain Nokia mobile phones. As part of an introductory offer, they do not have to pay any extra cost for the service till April, 2010, as long as they have the right devices.
The service follows the signing of a partnership between Safaricom, Nokia and DMTV. This will enable the subscribers to access the service, dubbed DStv Mobile, through DVB-H enabled Nokia phones.
To receive the service, which will give access to TV channels offered by pay TV firm DMTV, Safaricom subscribers will be required to have a Nokia handset specially configured to receive DVB-H broadcasts and programmed for that purpose in Kenya.
