Court bars Zuku, Star Times from showing World Cup

13 June 2014, 17:15

Nairobi - A Nairobi court has barred Zuku and Star Times from showing the World Cup on their platforms.

This follows an application by the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation who sought to have the two barred from showing the showpiece event through its feed on their platforms.

The two companies have recently advertised the World Cup to their customers and apparently showed both the opening ceremony and first match between hosts Brazil and Croatia on their platforms using KBC's feed.

The national broadcaster as a matter of urgency moved to the court and were granted the orders by Judge Eric Ogolla.

KBC argue that they are the only legitimate owners of the World Cup feed in Kenya apart from South Africa's Supersport and thus the move by the two to take their feed will see them lose millions of shillings in advertising revenue.

Judge Ogolla ordered all parties to meet Tuesday June 16, 2014 to thrash out a deal on the matter.

KBC receive their feed for the World Cup via world governing body FIFA.

The move will be a blow to both Zuku and Star Times who were urging their customers to renew their subscriptions for the month due to the showpiece event.
