Kenya to ban importation of analogue TVs

Kenya is to ban the importation of analogue TV sets by June this year in order to take forward the country’s digital switchover plan.

Kenya needs to end analogue broadcasting by the end of 2015 to meet the deadline set by the ITU. Kenyan government officials are also in discussions to remove taxes on digital set-tops, which currently retail for about KES5,000 (€45), according to local reports.

Kenya plans to spend about KES3 billion rolling out digital broadcasting.
