Citizens are required to use set-top-boxes to acquire the free digital signal and failure to do so will render their TV set useless from 01 January 2013.

Kenya’s Information PS, Bitange Ndemo, is quoted in the report as saying that the rest of the county will migrate by June next year.

The international date for the entire migration process is 2015 and according to The Star, telecommunication companies have been campaigning for the process to be fast-tracked to enable them to acquire freed frequencies and increase products.
