StarTimes are openly lying to the public that they will air live world cup matches from today until the end of the tournament.
In a full page colour advertisement in sections of the print media today, "Score with the best deal in town" StarTimes are saying "watch live football in crystal clear digital quality on StarTimes"
The rights for Kenya are limited to the national broadcaster Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) and the South-African run DSTV.
According to credible sources we cannot name for their own safety, StarTimes are hoping to illegally cash on its' Signet KBC1 channel to relay the World Cup to its' Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda viewers digitally and through YouTube. Uganda has no FIFA rights to relay the same.
Sources informed Cofek that against "pressure from above" KBC has threatened to disconnect its' KBC channel 1 from their Signet bouquet if they defy the rule.
A former KBC MD, Mr David Waweru was later to lose his job as a result of illegal transfer of World Cup broadcasting rights to other local stations.
StarTimes have cashed on this deceptive deal by reducing the cost of their set top boxes to Sh1,999.
