Supreme Court Rules On Digital Migration


The court has further barred Communication Commission of Kenya (CCK) from switching off analogue TV signals pending the hearing and determination of appeal case by CCK and the Chinese firm.

 

In a ruling read by Justices Jackton Ojwang and Smokin Wanjala, the court also pointed out that the switch off date remains 30th September 2014.

 

Signet, star times and GOTV are among those that were prohibited from airing content from Royal Media Services, Nation Media Group and Standard Group without their consent.

 

This comes after the three major media houses, Royal Media Services, Nation Media Group and the Standard Group moved to court arguing that staying the orders would give an unfair advantage to the Chinese company which despite the orders of the Court of Appeal continued to broadcast their signal illegally.

 

In an earlier ruling, the Court of Appeal had revoked the license issued to the Chinese company by the Communication Commission of Kenya which the court determined was not properly constituted when it issued the license to the Chinese company.

 

The Appellate court also ordered that the three media houses be issued a broadcast signal distribution without going through the tendering process.
