COFEK On KBC World Cup Matches
COFEK Vice Chairman John Juma says the move by KBC to bar Star Times, Zuku and GOTV from airing KBC feed for world cup matches infringes on the consumers rights.
Juma sentiments have been echoed by Startimes Media Vice Chairman Hans Han who has also appealed to KBC to allow them to air the world cup football matches.
This comes a day after the High Court gave orders stopping Pay TV companies from broadcasting the games.
KBC told the court that they have a contract with FIFA that allows them to be the sole broadcaster of the tournament in the country.
Any other broadcaster allowed to broadcast would be infringing their rights.
KBC also said they stand to lose billions of shillings in terms of advertising revenue if other broadcasters were not stopped.
Judge Ogolla ordered all parties to meet Tuesday June 16, 2014 to thrash out a deal on the matter.
