NOW STARTIMES HIKES PRICES ON SHILLING DEVALUATION

Startimes Group has now increased its subscription rates after its acquisition of the rights to the German Bundesliga was affected by the weakening of the Shilling forcing them to raise prices to cover their costs.

The price increase has been communicated as a charge for Sports add ons.

All key international sports have been removed from the normal bouquets and will only be available for additional cost.

Their premium sports offering dubbed Sports Plus will now cost an extra Sh600 per month on all their bouquets.

Sources indicate the new charges will be tabulated as follows:

    This fraud judgment has led to Antony Gordon’s Chapter Seven bankruptcy, which is a straight liquidation.
    This (2:13-ap-01536-DS 1568931 Ontario Ltd., an Ontario (Canada Corporati v. Gordon et al) looks like a $9 million dollar fraud judgment in federal court against Rabbi Chanan (Antony) Gordon (an attorney, motivational speaker, and hedge fund manager).
