We’re going to take a look at the two most popular satellite TV providers in Kenya, Zuku and DStv. Both of these companies have their own pros and cons, so let’s take a look at what they are.
Zuku is the cheapest option for cable TV in Kenya, but it starts at around Ksh 2,000 per month for their basic package. This includes 200+ channels including local channels like KTN News and Citizen TV, as well as international channels like BBC World News and Bloomberg TV Africa. You can also get an additional 100+ channels with their Premium pack for Ksh 2,400 per month or their Ultimate pack for Ksh 2,800 per month.
Zuku also offers a free HD box if you sign up for any of their packages above Ksh 1,200 per month. You can also get an additional free HD box if you sign up for their Ultimate pack. The price of each box varies depending on which package you buy (ranging from Ksh 1,600 – 4,600), so make sure to factor that into your decision when choosing which package will work best for your household!
