With Uganda already having four subscription TV companies which are providing nationals with a variety of great entertainment and education, nationals are again blessed with the coming of yet another subscription TV company dubbed Zuku TV with over 80 channels on their menu.
Speaking at a media launch in Kampala today, the information minister, Mary Karoro Okurut cautioned the investors over importing in channels which show immoral products to Uganda’s society.
She also encouraged them to attract more investors since the country provides a favorable investment climate.
Karooro also tasked them not to import a huge number of their staff from their country but provide jobs to the local population.
The CEO of the company, Richard Bell and one of the directors, Patrick Bitature assured Ugandans of best service provision by the company.
Bell says they are provide a better alternative with a decoder set to be sold at 120,000 Uganda shillings to access the service and a monthly fee of 30,000 Uganda shillings.
Currently, old timers Multichoice Uganda are tussling it out with Star Times Digital TV, Smart Television and Mo Television for the increasingly competitive pay TV subscriber market in Uganda.
Zuku TV, coming in from neighbouring Kenya is the fifth pay tv in Uganda.
