"We did not buy GOtv to watch your boring channels" KOT
Kenyans on Twitter reacted negatively to an advertisement by the three media houses fighting digital migration, NTV, Citizen and KTN with many saying they would go ahead and buy pay-TV set top boxes.
In the ad that aired on their respective TV stations, the media owners cautioned Kenyans against buying GOTV and Startimes decoders and asked them to wait for decoders that their consortium is importing.
Not only is this inaccurate but it is also tantamount to slander by suggesting that a legitimately licensed business that has invested millions of dollars into the country is somehow fleecing consumers.
Businessmen who have purchased the GOtv set top boxes complained that the advert would hurt their business and termed it illegal.
