Star DTV enters Ugandan market

Tuesday 9 February 2010 | 15:32 CET | News
Chinese digital pay-TV company Star DTV has launched operations in Uganda. The pay-TV service has a package of 30 channels for UGX 15,000 per month and 40 channels at UGX 25,000 per month. This is on top of an initial access fee of UGX 120,000. The company promised the charges would be revised downwards as the company deepens its share of the market. The firm has outlets on Kampala road near Aristoc Book Store, in Ntinda, Kira town and Nateete. By the end of this year, ten outlets should be established across the country. Currently, Star channels cover Kampala, Wakiso, Entebbe, Jinja and Masaka. Chen said the whole nation will be covered by 2012, with the total investment expected to reach USD 40 million. Star DTV is operating in Rwanda and has begun work in Tanzania, Kenya and Burundi. With over 20 years experience, the Star Group of companies has more than 7 million digital subscribers in China. Local TV stations such as Bukedde, NTV, NBS and WBS can be accessed through Star DTV.
