Get a free Dstv Drifta Mobile Decoder when you sign up for Airtel’s postpaid line

Airtel Kenya’s subscribers have yet something to look forward this Christmas season; new or current subscribers who sign up for Airtel’s postpaid line will be rewarded with a Dstv’s drifta mobile decoder for Android. The promotion comes after Airtel partnered with Multichoice to reward new customers who opt into the postpaid paid plan instead of the popular prepaid. The move comes just days before the analogue digital signal transmission will be switched off in Nairobi and its environments, Digital migration has become a thorn for most Kenyan’s who’d wish to continue enjoying their favorite TV channels yet they can’t afford a decoder or a compatible television set. It’s a platform that enjoys enormous advantages but at the same time these benefits are underscored by expensive free to air decoders.

Currently, the two most popular service providers in the country include Startimes and Gotv, both have a paid TV option and a free-to-air alternative or both, Startimes is owned by Pan Africa – a Chinese based company while Gotv is owned by Multichoice and KBC. Getting decoders from the service providers for paid TV is cheaper than actually opting for free-to-air channels; Startimes have a separate priced higher decoder for those who’d like free-to-air option while Gotv offers an upgrade of their current set top boxes at a fee to view free-to-air channels.

Drifta is a mobile decoder issued to Dstv’s subscribers opting into mobile television, the device is compatible with mobile handsets running on Google’s Android operating system. With a Dstv drifta mobile decoder, Airtel’s postpaid subscribers will receive up to 16 channels and 3 months free subscription.

How to connect Dstv Drifta Mobile Decoder to your android smart phone

  • Your handset must have Android version 4.0 or earlier
  • From your android device, head over to google play and install ‘Drifta for Android’ app
  • Connect the Drifta via MicroUSB port, the application should launch automatically
