Supreme Court to deliver ruling on digital migration

29 September 2014, 10:31

Nairobi - The Supreme Court is Monday expected to make a ruling on whether major media houses will be awarded digital transmission licenses or not.

The licenses were given to Signet Kenya limited, Star Times Media Limited, Pan Africa Network Group Kenya Limited and GOTV Kenya, which were new entrants in the market, The Standard reports.

In March, Court of Appeal judges stopped the four signal distributors from airing any content belonging to the country’s three top media houses without permission and also asked the government to postpone digital migration to September.

The judges said the three media houses, the Standard Group, Nation Media Group and Royal Media Services had a valid expectation when they invested in infrastructure in readiness for digital migration.

The media houses said it was unfair for the government to deny them broadcast rights and have their content aired through a third party.

They also wanted the viewers to be given more time to acquire set-top boxes before the switch off.
