MultiChoice Kenya has unveiled the first renewable energy broadcast site in Africa, today in Bomet County.
Speaking during the unveiling of the base station in Motigo, Bomet Governor H.E Professor Hillary Barchok, who was represented by the Acting County Secretary Simion Langat, said that the move comes at a time when Kenyan audiences are clamoring for quality content that suits their different tastes and preferences.
He lauded MultiChoice Kenya as a leader in the entertainment sector that has impacted the Kenyan economy contributing more than US$500 million between 1 April 2015 – 31 March 2019.
MultiChoice is a leading entertainment company that creates, aggregates, and delivers content through Direct to Home (DTH), Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), and online video services. The company showcases content through DSTv, GOtv, Showmax, and DStv Now platforms to approximately 14 million people in 50 countries.
The establishment of the GoTV gap filler base station project in Bomet will create employment for the locals as installers, dealers, accredited agents, distributors, security personnel among others.
MultiChoice Kenya mapped out Bomet County as one of its gap filler sites owing to the growing active audience in the wake of the digital disruptions in the broadcast industry.
The function was attended by MultiChoice Kenya Managing Director Nancy Matimu, Central Regional Head, John Murimi, Corporate Affairs Manager Philip Wahome among other guests.
