Win for media houses as court bars analogue switch-off

27 December 2013, 18:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Analogue signal has resumed in Nairobi and its environs after the Communications Commision of Kenya CCK was ordered by the court of appeal to return it until the hearing of a case by three media houses.

The court of appeal granted the media houses a 45 day reprieve until an appeal is heard and determined on February 6 2014 regarding the switch from digital to analogue.

Judge Kihara Kariuki, speaking on behalf of a three judge bench said that it was unfair for the analogue signal to be switched off while there was a case pending in court to determine the legibility of the switch.

The ruling comes as a reprieve to Kenyans who can't afford the set top boxes required to enable their television sets view the digital signal.

Media houses had argued that the move would cost them billions of shillings in terms of revenue and that the move was not done in the rightful manner.

The government on the other hand had insisted that the public as well as media houses had been given enough time and education in the importance and need of the migration.

Nation Media Group, Standard Group and the Royal Media Services are the three media houses contesting the decision to switch from analogue to digital.
