Kenya TV Stations switched off

tvThe country’s leading television stations went off air Monday night in compliance with the law, after they lost a case to delay digital migration.

The High Court Monday dismissed a petition by the Nation Media Group, the Standard Group and Royal Media seeking to delay switch-off of the analogue TV signal.

After the case was lost, media owners said NTV, Citizen TV and KTN had no choice but to obey the law and go off air.

But they said they will proceed to the Court of Appeal Tuesday morning in a bid to have the order by High Court judge David Majanja overturned.

“We have instructed our lawyers to appeal against the High Court decision in the Court of Appeal.

At the same time, we are pursuing other avenues to resolve the issue so that you can continue watching your favourite television station.

We hope to be back on air as soon as possible,” the media owners said.
