As reported by Advanced-Television more than a week ago, Kenya has confirmed that its main analogue transmitters will be switched off on December 31st.
Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) DG Francis Wangusi says the analogue switch-of will be implemented in three phases beginning with Nairobi and its suburbs.
The second phase that will cover the coastal region Mombasa, Malindi, Nyeri, Meru, Kisumu, Webuye, Kakamega, Kisii, Nakuru, Eldoret, Nyahururu, Machakos, Narok and Loldiani (Rongai), set to switch off on February 2nd.
The third phase will cover all other remaining sites, which will be switched off on March 30th. The process will result in the issuance of self provisioning infrastructure licenses for signal distribution by Standard Group, Nation Media Group and Royal Media Services, in line with the Supreme Court ruling.
