Not only in Kenya but also throughout Africa, DSTv continues to be a well-liked broadcast service provider. Because of their market dominance and the fact that they own the rights to stream football, they have the authority to charge much higher prices for their packages than any other digital TV providers.
It would be fascinating to see how the market reacts, especially given that the World Cup is coming up later and a new Premier League season is currently in progress.
Additionally, Showmax, an on-demand streaming service, and GOtv, a digital television provider, are owned by Multichoice. While Showmax competes with the likes of Netflix, Gotv competes with less expensive digital television companies.
Additionally, Showmax provides live streaming for sports and regional TV channels. This caters to anyone who might not want to have a full DSTv or GOtv setup only for viewing sports.
