StarTimes Media


StarTimes Media is a well-recognized pay TV provider with over 9 million subscribers worldwide, founded in 1988 with headquarters in Beijing. They have adopted Digital TV technology to establish a powerful and secure multi-frequency and multi-channel digital wireless TV transmission platform. Combining satellite with terrestrial technology has facilitated the transmission of more than 140 local and international channels over their platform which they are well capable of hosting, thanks to their eight uplink stations in the region.

Their African operations date back to 2006 when they launched in Rwanda, kicking off their expansion into Guinea, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Central Africa, Burundi, Mozambique, Senegal, Ghana, Congo, Gabon, Sudan and Malawi. They continue to roll out wireless digital TV platforms based on DVB-T2 technology in these and other countries. These will contain colorful international channels and will incorporate all analogue channels, making them available on the digital platform.

StarTimes officially launched their business in Kenya in July, 2012. They expect to invest over USD 75 million toward the achievement of a 100% network cover across the country, in their quest to make digital television a reality in Kenya. Currently, their signal is already on air in: Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa, Eldoret, Nyeri, Kakamega, Kisii, Nyahururu, Kericho, Bungoma, Meru, Nakuru, Narok, Malindi and Webuye.
