800 Kenyan villages to watch satellite television programmes

KBC Kenya

Under the initiative between the government and StarTimes, three solar powered television sets equipped with satellite decoders would be installed in each of the 800 villages across the country within the next one month.

In efforts to improve digital broadcasting access in rural areas, the Chinese government through StarTimes has started the 10,000 villages digital television project in Africa. Each of the 800 villages will have two sets of solar powered TV systems, and one set of 32 inch TV set satellite dish. To ensure that most of the targeted people benefit, the television sets would be mounted at public facilities such as schools or youth centers.
