StarTimes TV Kenya Bouquet Channels

StarTimes TVMonths after the introduction of Kenya’s first DVB-T2 digital television frequency by Signet which’s owned by KBC, StarTimes has joined the segment in a move that’s expected to propel Kenya’s ambitions of fully migrating to digital transmission. Despite the potential presented by the new platform, most pay TV providers in Kenya have failed to cope-up with Dstv which enjoys a significant portion of Kenya’s total market. The likes of Smart TV and G-TV were forced to exit the market due to competition. StarTimes TV is owned by China’s Pan African Network which’s currently operating in most countries including Nigeria and is currently available in Nairobi and its environments on D.T.T platform. The success of StarTimes will be attributed to their Bouquets in terms of Pricing and channels; Dstv is comparatively expensive but has a lot of sporting channels which Kenyans love.

    • I have already phoned them twice and told them that the subtitles in the Kungfu series are far from accurate, besides they sometimes don’t even appear, and at times its pretty obvious that what has been translated into English is far from what was spoken!

  1. I havent watched it yet neithet installed it, but I would like to know what live SPORTING ACTION do you provide, say like the EPL, ITALIAN LEAGUE, SPANISH LA LIGA and moany others? DO you televise LIVE Kenyan league?

  2. Yes it can, the DVB Transmission is from Limuru and thus anyone within Nairobi, Mombasa and its environs can receive the DVB-T2 signal

  3. I just hope their signal is reliable because I am planning to buy the startimes decoder soon, I also just realized that not all free to air channels are included once your subscription has expired, anyone with experience on startimes usage?

  4. there is nothing good with startimes.The only free to air channel is KBC.Am regretting to buy your decorder.Is this the meaning of digital migration?Am from Kisumu.Nothing to enjoy.Without decorder I could watch almost 6 local channels but now nothing.Please guyz work on this mess.

  5. Mimi naitwa Mely and you can take this to the bank: Star times is a fraud!! The only thing you watch once your subscription expires is KBC! Even after subscribing, you will never watch football, nothing! Not even the Tusker KPL!! Hawa watu wana utoto sana, i now believe that cheap is expensive!

  6. this is fraud! I bought this decoder hopping to improve my t.v signal which is poor, only to find out that not even local channels can work. the channels only work during the day. at Night, all the channels are scrambled! there is this sales lady who sold me the decoder at NAIVAS NAIROBI, AND GOSH …..I believed her only to find out that she’s just one of those TERRIBLE SALES LIERS.WITH ALL THIS LIES AND, BELIEVE ME, STARTIMES IS GOING NOWHERE. THEY WILL DDEFRAUD NON SUSPECTING KENYANS, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, THEY WILL GO DOWN THE DRAIN LIKE KENYA BUS, AKAMBA, GTV AND KENYA TIMES.

    • Try adjusting your aerial to face Limuru. I had the same problem and was sorted out after adjusting the aerial

  7. Startimes ni bure kabisa..aaai..really they cant even track someones decoder incase of theft.. the customer service guy says even if they turn it off it can still be deactivated. What kind of crap is that… 2 this guys have nothing nothing except BET and the local channels,… Damn what was I thinking when I bought this china toy..all the best and Goodbye Startimes.. nimehama you will see stars.

  8. star times isn’t as bad as you would like to put it guys, we are receiving better signals but the main issue is, we should be able to watch all the Kenyan free channels even if our subscription is over. here the star times people will have to man up

  9. I was on my to T mall to buy the decoder I am developing cold feet after flocking states tv Kenya. Are the comments by other clients true?

  10. Almost bought it last weekend but the sales people delayed coming to talk to me and after reading all the comments here, am glad i din’t buy it.

  11. better DSTV when it comes to programme viewing.I strongly support and prefer Dstv .Star times is just a china toy.They really need to change their ways and man up.Ithink your company was once Gtv.If you don’t change we shall have no other alternative but to boy cott and press charges just like gtv.

  12. Haiya ………….those comments and im in the waiting bench to see a star times decoder sales person . I’m off………..

  13. I bought the decoder recently in Nakumatt Nakuru. Picture quality is fantastic. However lost Family and Sayare. I thought could access Kiss Tv but can’t. Is this just a forum for complaining or we expect action on issues raised above?

  14. I’ve read so much about this company but after reading these comments im getting. In fact i was going to purchase it tomorrow. Where are these people to shade light on these complains raised here?

  15. Honestly, these comments r scary. I hate Zuku and am dumping it soon. Bt if this is what startimes has in store for me, then Gotv might b the better option

  16. Quite a disappointment, no signal at all.I bought this useless box at Tuskys branch in Nairobi on 28-12-12.I regret

  17. ma gal has pinched me for wanting to replace da dstv with with wat she called crappy tv.ouch..en i thot twas a steal bt weas startimes pr.they cant bother to respond on the above

  18. Lol u guyz amaze me…u are complaining to much…but rememba that u get wat u pay for…u can’t expect to get a variety of channels like dstv wen u pay 2k en for those saying they can’t get any channels get a better antenna or save up and buy the dvb-t2

  19. They have useless customer care telephonelines, after being kept on hold for long, the lady only argues with you to call up a technician to sort you out. Come on, CALL A technician at 2200hrs? Just a bunch of crap. Waste of time and money. When the deal is too good think twice.

  20. I am regretting buying the damn box 3 weeks ago. We enjoyed clear pictures for 2 weeks and its no more. Their technical guy checked for the problem and said its Faulty and they need to change it, am still waiting.

  21. why cant u offer local channels free like others ie microvillle wanafanya? Bei ya star Time decorder ni 2500 then lipa 499 basic kila mwezi na uedelee hivyo mwaka uishe. hei! Nitahama.

  22. why cant u offer local channels free like others ie microvillle wanafanya? Bei ya star Time decorder ni 2500 then lipa 499 basic kila mwezi na uedelee hivyo mwaka uishe. hei! Nitahama.Tuachieni local channels free singine tutalipa na kiss tv iwe local.

  23. Nlibuy ii decorder ths january,imagn after watchin for 1 wk,channels zote zimepotea n inadai no signal,ata cjui n2pe ama nfanye,startimes mnaudhi

  24. startimes basic boquet is a riip off if they do not change it by next month a buying go tv startimes turning out to be a waste of tyme

  25. I wanted to buy it for watching EPL n La Liga, r there stations in this box which show dis games live?….. if not then let it go to hell ..

  26. Guyz I understand your frustrations with DTV broadcasters. But its important you know that majority of these channels are picked via satellite for free using (Free to Air) Satellite decoders commonly called DVB-S2(S: stands for Satellite) as opposed to DVB-T2(T: stands for Terestial which requires someone to receive channels for you via satellites remotely then purchase frequencies and licences from CCK then resend you the same channels only that u need an Aerial to receive them. But you can receive this channels using correct satellite equipment here locally

  27. Am writing to complain about the injustices done to me.
    Am supposed to be paying my monthly subscription on the 24th of every month but apparently am always disconnected on 20th of the month. Am very disappointed. can you do something?

  28. hi i bought ur decoder recently but the signal is always not there and am unable to view Qtv from nanyuki do something

  29. please startimes try your best and give us channels which shows sports like Euefa,premier league, even Epl.pliz we love sport.

  30. For heavens sake!!! I Bought my Startimes decorder at Yakomart Bungoma and subscribed to the Basic package… But hata Kiss TV PEKEE MNATUNYIMA!!! I really wasted my cash…. is it because it sometimes airs the Backlays premier league??? THAT’S PURE ROBBERY WITH VIOLENCE!!!!

    • It is not the problem with startimes/dstv or other digital platform provider but those Stations deny the providers the digital content. even on the Free to Air decoders they refuse to supply the signal to signet. The same stupidity they use when they dont want the switchover to the digital platform

  31. honestly.. this is crap…..even when i have paid for the package i still cannot view all channels as expected….. i have to keep rotating my aerial and that is what i was avoiding in the first place….people stay away…

  32. Been using Startimes since December 2012 and I must say I get value for my money and also I get to watch what I want

  33. Bought the decoder last month. Got all the channels for 3 weeks then suddenly one morning, no signal! Hey! what am I missing here guys??!

  34. my hubby keeps complaining about Discovery sciences cos yours is discovery world………wish you had sony max too………am soo sad but i want to experience unique bouquet so i can know way forward…

  35. i bought startimes decorder last month and imagine am enjoying it,their signal is perfect.Guys who are complaining you should connect your decorder to an external Antenna for you to receive best signals…i had the same problem but am sorted.i have 4 days to top up n continue enjoying!!!!

  36. Bought the StarTimes at Rongai BeesNess Park in Rongai, 1st Floor WestWing (Masai Stage) and the guys there are the best. They even fixed an aerial for me at no cost and now I receive over 125 channels including 40 Signet Channels free of charge. Dem boss comes over to my house whenever I want him and leaves me fully satisfied on matters DVB. I will consider him for other services. StarTimes is the best.

  37. why cant i receive any local channels( ktn,ntv,citizen,qtv,kbc)? i have always been on support of startimes but recently i am regretting purchasing your decoder. i am situated at kasarani,mwiki.Advice b4 i subscribe for this month.

  38. 1st of all Zuku & Startimes are 100% rip offs. Zuku lets you pay for Astra FTA channels. those are free channels. same with startimes. BE AWARE

  39. nani anasema ako na 140 channels? is t here in kenya?. I bought mine 3 wks ago n am regretting. am selling it for 3k- 0728858959

  40. Startimes is great! I bought an STV-DVBT2 decoder going for Kshs 4,999 two months ago and I am telling you that this decoder is great! I have a total of 32 free channels after expiration of my subscription. Unique Plus bouquet comes with a total of more than 125 channels, and still growing larger! I like them.

  41. Am a new customer.Lives in Kayole,Nairobi.Iwould like to know whether you air live sports ie EPL.CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.Athletics etc as am a fan of spots, Respond please.

  42. HELLO STARTIME I HAVE INSTALLED DVB-T2(STAR5000T2) I M ONLY VIEWING KBC .Where are the local channels u promised?

  43. its good because its affordable for an average kenyan, but honestly speaking airing local channels freely on the new setbox and charging the people with older boxes isnt fair at all. You should have upgraded the older set boxes first before bringing the new one.

  44. Man awa ni waste bure Kabisa imagine my little sis alikuwa akiwatch kids co now wana toa I hope wakitoa waeke boomerang au Disney channel au xd so far hi decoder tumeifix 4 times now ata dstv ni poa lakini watoto hawata soma aah zuku ni better

  45. i have been using this free to air startime but from yesterday No ntv and citizen, what could be the problem ?

  46. I wish i could have a better comment but its all the same they are not helping us & also they lie to us that its free to air only to be disconnected once it expires kindly let view our local channels and pay for the others. or just tell us the truth when purchasing this items.

  47. I bought the decoder a few months ago and fixed the external antena but most of the time there is no signal, what do you advice me to do?

  48. What happened to the local channels?Only kbc en k24.i have stayed with this decoder for only one month.Having not subscribed,am not able to watch local channels.am forced to disconnect the decorder en connect it manually to the aerial.Do something please.

    • There is a court case thats why there no all local channels on star times.Do you get emmanuel tv christian channel?

  49. Where is fox crime???? Need to change to dstv. Its not interesting n keep on repeating things from last year.

  50. Wanted to buy the decoder for my parts _ in law buh now am dead worried if this is wat the star times is all abt

  51. World cup is here with us…Our folks in shags need somethings for getting entertained…..I thot of star times buh after reading the comments ….I am kinder worried..en thinking of anaa option…..plz clear this mess before your ship sinks like gtv. …
