Nairobi - The Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek) has engaged in consumer education across the country ahead of the analogue TV signal switch-off.
This comes after the Communications Authority of Kenya announced 31 December, 2014 as the new digital migration date for television viewers in Nairobi and nearby counties, in the first phase.
Cofek advised Kenyans to plan to buy Set-Top Box (STB) in good time to avoid being locked out when the switch off will be effected.
“If you are unsure what to buy, from where and how much, please contact us,” read part of statement from the federation.

“It is in your interest to clearly understand and appreciate what digital migration is and what it is not. Digital migration will affect the way we communicate and relate to each other. It has technical, legal and socio-economic implications,” the stamen added.
However, the federation said the migration is not compulsory adding that those who will not have a STB gadget will not be able to continue enjoying Free-To-Air (FTA) channels.
