Swedish firm Next Generation Broadcasting (NGB), operators of the Smart TV brand, have extended their digital TV service to residents of Kenya. The service was fully launched today, following a pilot phase that began since June 2010.
The pay TV operator is aiming to offer affordable TV to Kenya, and revolutionize the market. Capital FM quotes NGB Kenya Chief Executive Officer Dan Kagwe as saying:
“We have got a product that we believe suits the consumer. After research, we have seen most people do not watch more than five channels on television so it’s useless to occupy with 200 when you only watch one”
Capital FM throws more light on Smart TV Kenya’s strategy for growth:
Smart TV subscribers will purchase a bouquet of 17 to 20 high quality local and international programming, including African and Western movies, sports, news, children’s programming, and the latest updates in show business for Sh990 a month with set-top boxes retailing at Sh5,000.
Smart TV intends to invest heavily in an effort to promote local programming not only in Kenya but also across Africa.
All the current free to air channels including KBC, Citizen, KTN, NTV and K24 among others will also be available on the DTT (Digital Terrestrial Television) platform with the added advantage of being in digital quality.
Smart TV has already been operating in Ghana on pilot basis since April 2010 and would extend its services to Uganda early 2011.
i like much this smart tv and who can help me i like installation dishes am here nairobi.
You don’t need a satellite dish for Smart TV. You should Smart TV directly for assistance. They would recommend the nearest retailer of their Smart TV receiver to you.

am in mombasa and i would like to enjoy your services are you in mombasa and where also give me your charges pliz
in mombasa kenya we(smart tv) have not reached but the process to roll out is underway but for now its within nairobi and its environ……..

Hi Johnson, the Digital Terrestrial Signal is currently available in Nairobi and its environs.The governmentis yet to roll -out the signal to the rest of Kenya.
incompitency! lack of transparency,ingegrity and impunity ur waiting for the government,really lyk butchers at kiamaiko
I bought this smart tv decoder but it has turned to be a nightmare: since i bought it 4 days todate it has never been activated despite calling several times.My email messages goes without reply.Are you here for trial basis or your are real. or are you GTV that run away with kenyans money.

I bought the first set top box from KCB and was really interested to get smart tv too but have been informed that they cannot be compatible with the smart tv card. then what is the exact relationship btw kbc and smart tv. can i get the card only and insert in my set top box.
This is great news but what I ask is, do they air live English Premier League, Laliga, Seri A and may be Bundesliga matches?
Am embarrassed after purchasing only to find out that it doesn’t air English premier league. its now useless to me.
Smart TV does show one premier league game every week. These games will be aired.
CHELSEA V BLACKBURN
MANCHESTER UTD V BIRMINGHAM
NEWCASTLE VS ARSENAL
LIVERPOOL V WIGAN
WIGAN V MANCHESTER UTD
Kindly ensure you get the rights to air live English Premier league games and you will be good to go. I still have to go to the clubs to watch them!!!
Am very disappointed to have purchased the Smart TV and only few channels have sound. why should they encrypt their soundless channels? a very low deal from Smart tv
Hv bought Smart tv and Smart card but after installation, it display No Access to Channels like Fox, Kidco, Sentanta what i my suppose to do?
please man even dstv started with 15 channels worldwide.so why dont you give smart TV an opportunity to prove its worthiness in the country and let it transform you the smart way ,
Hi smart.i would like to be your agent in kisumu.i do believe i can work fro smart better and in style.guys have been asking about when smart will reach kisumu i am waiting for the job offer.
are we able to get a line up of programmes smart tv is going to be offering and rights to Epl if it has as well as please advice if they are going to be giving a booklet showing the services and categories of programmes smart tv has
You can visit http://www.smart.tv to view the programme schedule. Smart Tv is currently airing one match from EPL on saturdays and From Serie A it airs one match on saturday and on sunday. It also airs NBA.
I know this is info I should be getting from Smart TV Kenya but if they are not going to tell us exactly which European football leagues they will be airing LIVE then I’d rather stick with DSTV as expensive as it may be. Thanks David for your effort. The world needs more people like you.
As a Epl,La Liga soccer enthuasist ,kindly give us more information whether Smart Tv will be airing all the games and issue a monthly booklet outlining all the programmes to be aired,and where to pay out the monthly subscription in Machakos town.
My understanding is that the info David has provided on this blog is mainly based on his experience with Smart TV-GHANA. Problem with Smart TV-Kenya is the scarcity of details which to me is not a good sign. Having their own web-site up and running will help clear the air. At the moment they are banking on the ‘Peculiar’ Kenyan love for things new.
Smart Tv is currently airing one match from EPL on saturdays and From Serie A it airs one match on saturday and on sunday. It also airs NBA.
Smart Tv Kenya has not started charging subscription but it is going to introduce MPESA pay bill system and scratch card among other modes of payment. Currently the signal is not available in Machakos but plans are underway.
Am in siaya in western kenya. How can I contact smart tv? Can siaya receive the digital signals?
Currently the Digital signal is not available in Siaya.
for any business to get its basic foundation laid strongly,it starts from the capital and thats what we are doing.we’ve currently spread our wings to a bigger distance.by the end of june 2011 we will be at your service.
I purchased a DVB-T (ECHOLINK PRODUCT) BEFORE THE LAUNCH OF SMART TV.THE PROBLEM IS IT DOESN’T HAVE A PAY CARD SLOT.AM ABLE TO VIEW 12 FOREIGN CHANNELS ONLY,NO LOCAL CHANNEL.NOW WHAT CAN I DO TO WATCH LOCAL CHANNELS AND CAN I STILL BE ABLE TO SUBSCRIBE FOR PAY TV WITHOUT CARD SLOT ON MY DEVICE?
I doubt if you’d be able to subscribe to Smart TV with a card slot on your device. Try rescanning your receiver. It might detect the Kenyan channels after that.
i need this service how can i get it and how much does the whole installation cost
We are located in Nairobi Pangani kenya you can get the set box at our shop(Telestar enterprises limited)
will smart tv only have a maximum of 20 channels?
I own a digital set top box with a card slot, is it possible to subscribe for your services with my current STB.
HALLO, AM IN NAKURU AND NEED TO KNOW HOW AND WHERE I CAN GET SMART TV CONNECTION AND ALSO LET ME KNOW THE EXACT EUROPEAN MATCHES THAT SMART TV WILL BE AIRING.
please send me the list of all the programmes you are offering on your smart tv bouquet.
this will help me decide to buy.
Also publish on the website for us to read.
waitig for the list of programmes,i want to buy the box
Am interested,where are Smart TV offices or their mobile number?
The website is now up and running. Visit smart.tv
The mistake with dstv is that the cheap the package u pay 4 the few important channels u will watch,probably 2chns especially the package of ksh 830,which is bad,i would rather pay ksh 830 for seven channels ie the package which is currenty to dstv mobile. plz tell where ur located in mombasa.
Currently the Digital signal is not available in Mombasa but the government has set a deadline of 2012 to digitize the whole country.
Its a brilliant idea for smart tv to enter Kenya’s market and compete with the monopolistic DSTV. My fear and worry is that we don’t want another GTv scenario in Kenya. Secondly will they be airing any live football matches? and please provide a programme guideline in your website…
Will they air live the Nba and And1 games?What of the Mexican movies?
Smart Tv is airing NBA
I understand they is another company from china offering the same service and have parterned with KBC,does this mean we will have to buy two set top boxes,
I have the star DVB and I can only view the smart channels with no sound,and yet all the other channels have sound including the free to air channels,
The smart tv channels seem not to include channels like discorvery channel,history channel,national geographic, do you guys plan to include these channels later
When will you guys start operations seriously,with sound ??? and how will one get the smart cards ??? with no customer care points
I know somewhere in China where I can get the set top boxes and sell them locally at Kshs 2500. Are they standard?
we are tired with this DSTV thing. they are so expensive since they are monopolist co. with the coming of you guys do you think you going to make us proud in terms of charges and channels available. si ati giving us irrelevant local channels like the utv. what about the EPL, LA LIGA. that’s what is keeping us with dstv. kindly send us your feedback.
kamaliza unfortunately the set top boxes are not standard,star ( china) set up box are mpeg 2 and smart tv set top box are mpeg 4,thats why am not able to receive sound on my star set up box only pictures am also made to understand its a method of ensuring both companies sell their set top box
SMART TV Kenya airs one live game every Saturday from the EPL, the good part is that they only air games featuring MAN UTD, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool or MAN CITY. Who watches other games anyway? They also air Serie A games for the top teams including AC Milan, Inter and Juventus plus live NBA Games on there new channel ASN. Setanta Africa also airs the Spanish kings cup (copa del ray) which features clubs from Spain and you get to watch Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Bilbao and Atletico Madrid among others. Copa Del Rey schedule : http://www.soccerway.com/national/spain/copa-del-rey/2010-2011/final-stages/
Setanta Africa find more info on what it airs on http://www.setanta.com/africa/
Other channels include FOX, STAR, SHOWTIME, SILVER, Hi NOLLY, SETANTA AFRICA, ASN, STAR, BBC NEWS
I am an Entrepreneur based in eldoret and would like to be a dealer for the western region,how can i be able to go about it. Kindly please email all the details on the same in the shortest possible time.
Does it work on any digital box?
This is great news for us, would be good if you provided us with list of programs to be aired. Who are your local dealers and where are you located if I’m to come directly to you.
I leave in Nairobi and really need to know how i can get Smart tv, especially now that our children are on vacation. Where are the selling points and does it come with a list of programmes.
Hi, I am from Smart TV, and I would like to inform anyone with a question to ask, that they should feel free to contact us via the following addresses:-
For general information – [email protected]
For sales/dealership enquiries – [email protected]
We hope this helps in getting your many visitors an avenue to get their queries answered
Oh my God, does it mean my star china DVR is fake, why did the government allow sub standard good.
I am asking can it show in kitale? how much does it cost? okay channel sentanta africa is from Gtv, does it mean also Gtv decoder & the smartcard can be used?
I’m in lokichoggio asking When will Smart tv starts in kenya?where will i get smart tv decoder?do they have any mobile number?
the smart tv signals are only available in Nairobi and its environs i.e. Limuru, Gilgil, Thika, Mwea, Embu, Kitengela, Athi river, Gilgil
all what we need from smart tv kenya
is a running website;
point of sale of dvb t2 sets;
directly tell the public sports, entertainment and documentary channels expected for the Kes 990/=, atleast;
competition is healthy.am sure dstv is ripping me off monthly. if only the tell us programmes for that value i shall gladly dump the dish for a fair programming.
no wonder dstv put up a spiritted advert of Kes 5000/= purchase and installation at the moment.
dstv over 35 channels at kes 800/= and watching hausa, yoruba, portuguese, italian and other language which i dont understand is belying kenyans the contents. no value for the fee.
dstv should go thre equity bank or safaricom way, i.e. where the masses are by downgrading the documentary and sports channels along fta. by this more sales and viewership bracket. at kes 800/=. economy of sense if not scales.
cant’ wait to have mine
That means the singal will no reach other towns like Nakuru,Eldoret,Kitale,Lodwar and Lokichogio.
We people who live outside Nairobi and its environs why r we left out, just cant wait 2 receive signals!!!
which part are you kinoo isinya kite or thika we have signal that can receive smart
Pliz guyz,if you dont give kenyans the futbol they go looking for in pubz, then its going to be tricky for you.Be smart as you claim.
Where do I get the smart tv i am in Eldoret
How can i get this service am in eldoret.Any body out there who can help?
SMART TV is not yet available in Eldoret.
However,for more information on the digitalization progress please go to http://www.cck.go.ke/news/2010/news_08jan10.html.
i believe this is not another GTv in a different colour.
Some sales girls approached me with their brochures before they launched. There were 17 channels in total. I counted 13 which are already available freely and didn’t know the other three. One was a cartoon channel but anyway i didn’t think it was worth it. Unless they added more channels after launch.
Some advice to smart TV…The moment you start being vague on services thats a problem for you in the Kenyan market. I’d be interested in EPL,KPL,Rugby live matches and at times ESPN for NBA. So tell us in black or white.
Hi, am so happy that there’s a plan b'[ smart tv }. I visited dstv offices the other day and am sorry to say i was disappointed, the reason being i have to pay for the package which i not interested in for 6 months if i wanted their installation.I had to quit that plan and thanks God you came in just in time. Please may i kindly request you to tell me and other interested citizens where are your offices are or where we can go and be assisted to get your services?.

5. FAMILY TV
6. BUNGE TV

10. KISS TV

13. EXPRESS TV
The SMART TV decoder is currently retailing at Kshs.5990/-, inclusive of 1 months subscription to the SMART TV Bouquet and later a subscription fee of Kshs. 990/- will be charged monthly for SMART TV CHANNELS.
When we were told that smart TV was to launch in Kenya we thought that his was the case. I bought a decoder but can not use it in Nyahururu for there is no signal here this I don’t understand. Is there a possibility that the signal will get here soon? I believe the recorded is genuine for I tested it in Nairobi and it was working.
Why to cheat fellow Kenyas, I have the catched and on all listed channels, it only air KBC,GBS,SHALON,EATN but it does not air the remaining.
DO SMART TV SHOW SUPPER SPORT 3 AND 5 ANSWER ME AN INRESTED TO KNOW
SuperSport channels are exclusive to DStv.
When is smart tv signal expected to reach Eldoret and its environs?
where are your offices are or where we can go and be assisted to get your services? am interested in dealership coast
This is a great channel , when will it be available in Kisumu?
if you aren’t offering super sport 3 and 5,what are you offering the equivalent of that in your bouquet? whats this sentata sports? when are you avail receivership in eldoret and busia for that matter, coz i understand they are part of kenya
does smart tv covers areas like garissa, wajir or its just in nairobi
only nairobi for now but will expand to other parts of the country
You made us buy decoders when you said in the news on the day you were launching that it was to cover the whole of Kenya, now they are empty GTV look-alike boxes in the houses. Come out on TV and the Print media and give Kenyans the way forward to enable them use there money wisely this festive season, to buy the smart Tv decoders when your signals will roll out to the rest of Kenya.
These smart tv guys dont really look prepared for the kenyan market for sure. They made people buy decoders only for people not being able to use them.
SMART TV PEOPLE YOU HAD BETTER ANNOUNCE THE REAL SITUATION. SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER FIRST THEN ENCOURAGE US TO BUY THEN.
Look at dstv. They’re prepared and organised. they have websites for all info and contacts where you can reach them anytime. from the looks of things on this blog, nobody really seems to know anything. NOBODY HAS CLEAR INFO ON ANYTHING.
will champions league matches be broadcasted?????????????
kiss are are already doing so
i used to get NTV and KTN and now the decoder is reporting no signal. this is discouraging
hi i also used to get access to the local channels but they are not working i do not know if i have a different box as i bought one at nakumatt a couple of months ago and it is the terrestrial digital receiver. so is this different or do we now have to pay the 990 ksh. thanks

Again I say, all these funny (and some badly misinformed) questions should be directed to Smart TV Kenya. BUT without a website or any contacts given in their crappy TV ads what are people supposed to do? I dare say this outfit has nothing interesting to offer. AND THEY KNOW THAT! Kenyans don’t hold your breath!
Hey smart Tv we need to know clearly on the content of your package we are confused with sentata ur talking of.We are waiting to stop watching games in clubs en go back to our homes especially with new rules affecting pubs the only place we watch EPL,Champion league and Laliga
Currently it covers Nairobi but as time goes by it will cover the whole country since KBC is in the process of installing its digital hardware’s within the country before 2012. Smart TV has its own decoder called the smart TV, its digitally inbuilt thus transmissions are digital, it costs 5990 inclusive of one month subscription payable in cash or cheque, the channels on offer in the residential package called the SMART ZONE include: BBC World, Setanta Africa, ASPN (Africa sports network), Silver, Star, Hi Holly, Fox entertainment and Showtime going for 990 p.m our decoder comes with smart card that can only be used with smart TV decoder when subscription starts, all local channels are free to air and can be watched even if your account is suspended, am martin nand my number is 0726816018 .

Thanks David and Martin! I’m doing research on Smart TV and there’s hardly any information about it online, except at this page.
It’s great that the Kenyan broadcasting arena is expanding; content developers have countless opportunities at this time!
Hi, i just bought the set, but I’m only able to receive k24, Kbc, as free to air channels. Where’re the other channels? They’re not showing.
You need a good aerial one preferably with a booster depending on your location. Bk

I clearly like all you channels but I have a problem a star from China.It shows almost all the channel excluding all the locals channels such as KTN,NTV,CITIZEN,FAMILY,KISS & CLASSIC.My question was, iam required to purchase another set box from you or I continue using the one I have?

Guys,guys,guys!Enough already!One common thing on this thread has been complaint after complaint after complaint.Just reading the thread one would get discouraged from getting connected to Smart TV.GTV collapsed coz it tried to run before it could walk,too many channels and not enough capital.Give Smart TV time to grow instead of crying foul.Personally i havent connected but am going to hook it up next week and pay for 6 months subscription and see how it goes.I am currently on the DSTV Premium bouquoet and in as much as it superior 6700 p.m. with the high cost of living in Kenya now is just too much.I was also on GTV for about 1 year and it was wonderful while it lasted(though they run away with our money!).2750 p.m. with great programming.We need to support Smart TV to provide competition for DSTV.And for you SMART TV guys pull up your socks.Address complaints promptly and let us have a truly interactive website to go to for updates.Otherwise all the best!
you guys how do u giv out ua number and whn contcted u ignore our calls? After u moved frm kfnya r, where did u go? U evn hav d guts 2 hang up on me? Nkt Martin u got 2 b suckd!
can smart tv channels be received in kisii(kenya)? Whereb is the nearest office from Kisii? I wanna subscribe.
The EPL seasion has just ended,i hope you are doing something to aquire rights to air all local & EPL games
I bought your decoder on 16/06/2011 at Sarit center and upto now am still waiting for activation. I have called your office severally and all am told is – from your side the decoder is activated, that may be its may aerial or poor connection. I even involved my own technitian, bought a 15m long aerial wire but not even a alocal channel works when i involve a decoder.Pliz anyone at Donholm with smart tv assist or call 0726768808
hi with the above comments u guys need to style up,make an effort to maintain the clients you have before going for more or you will go under. employ professionals.
I believe this smart tv is for kbc but times has change and you need to style up even in teams of programmes very few and not really much offered, sports channels are old style be update.Please do employ more data entry clerks to speed up activation of the decoders.
Just one question, i don’t have silver, which number is it…? And i’d appreciate if showtime ran for 24hrs

HI WHEN I BOUGHT A SMART I WAS PROMISED
THAT THERE IS A CHANNEL THAT SHOWS WILD ANIMALS
BUT TO MAY SURPRISE HAKUNA
Hi guyz my smart tv can only receive local channels bt no access to Asn, ad other smart channels!!?…why? Koz of my aerial or what??
hi smart tv,i personally love your programming,im interested in the commentry, can you plz hire me to be a football and athletics commentator,ifeel i have the talent and passion,plz reply
You guys from smart and startimes should consider customers like me who bought imported receivers coz we cant watch ur pay channels only free to air,at least you dont have to force a customer to buy ur box,why cant u sell cards only coz we already have boxes which we bought without the appropriate info given to us.
I think smart tv is a raw deal for me the signal is good but still at most times its reception is poor.I was looking forward to watching big teams matches at backlays league and a wild life channel…hakuna.
now that kissTV they will be showing 2 EPL games every wekend, Bundes liga & Champion lig plz guys do something
Why are the smart channels audio/sound distorted?
I know i earlier asked u to have showtime for 24hrs, en i thank u for that. But then going ahead to replace ASN with STAR is jus the worst move. 80% of yua customers are in it for the love of EPL, en u limit it wen the season starts, really?!?!
You seriously need to go thru yua strategy, or hire me to give u some pointers.
Trust me, no one subscribes so as to watch kids tv
WHEN BUYING YOUR PRODUCT I WAS PROMISED THAT AM GOING TO FIND
AN ANIMAL CHANNEL JUST LIKE ANIMAL PLANET CHANNEL TO MY SURPRISE
THERE IS NOTHING OF THE SORT.
WHY DON’T YOU INTRODUCE ONE LIKE IT???????
Mid this year I purchased a TV card for my PC.A friend of mine sold to me a USB enabled TV card known as HDTV.on plugging to my PC and scanning channels,it turned out to receive your signals and other channels.two months later you encrypted the channels.Am now wondering this was not your device in the first place,yet it turned out to receive your channels.Please advice me on what to do
What is the problem with your programmes. Why pay for Chinese programmes which are not relevant to us. Why have you removed the other channels form your banquet. Please advice if you are about to close shop.
Its 4 months since i bought this stuff,ave never watched tha pay channels despite being ripped off two ksh 990 card,nd nw 2 salt ma wound!tha whole other channels dissapeared lst wk.wacheni kutuosha! Saika estate.
Mathew, Why don’t you try GOTV from multichoice instead of grumbling. You just have to move on. Am on GOTV and am really enjoying myself.
We appreciate your sentiments and would request you to send an email to [email protected] expessing your experience. Please remember to state your mobile number and your smartcard number.
wen will smart tv signals reach as far as nyahururu?
Thank you for your concern. We are not specific as to when the digital terrestrial signal will be available at Nyahururu, however as soon as we have the information as to when, we will make it known to you.
should i do away with my digital terrestrial receiver,purchased it while livin in nairobi.
One common thread in this emails is that most people here are grumbling. To begin with you guys need to know you are paying 990 per month don’t expect super service and content for that money.
That aside Smart TV get your act right please. You would rather have three channels but try to put some quality programming (which believe me is available even for free to air programs) instead of the Spanish soaps that you have started inundating your channels with. And oh, before I forget the Sports channels suck big time.
There I go i have joined the grumbling group!!!
We appreciate your support and your comment is taken seriously and has been forwarded to the content department.
Hi now am in distress coz i dnt even know if smart tv is still operational, i repaid my subscription for three months and immediately after all foregn channels vanished.am based in Thika n ts too bad that the system no longer works for me… so bad that ts even easier for me to go back analogue.
guyz u really need 2do smthng about yo programmes,they juz suck..ur movie selection is juz boring and whats wth the chinese and asian channels?plus thre r better cartoons than the ones you bring at kids.co. We feel conned to say the least.wt a raw deal!
