In recent months, Zuku Pay TV, a prominent service provider in Kenya, has emerged as a formidable competitor in the market, challenging the dominance of DStv. While Smart TV has faced setbacks due to legal disputes and an underdeveloped terrestrial broadcasting platform, Zuku Pay TV has gained the trust of consumers with its impressively affordable monthly subscriptions and a wide selection of world-class channels. Although Smart TV offers a limited number of channels compared to DStv and Zuku, all three providers offer a standard basic package subscription with prices ranging from Kshs.700 to Kshs.1000. However, Zuku and DStv also offer additional packages with more channels at higher prices, whereas Smart TV has only one package.
