The government is searching for two more digital television signal distributors in its renewed effort to speed up migration from analogue to digital broadcast ahead of Kenya's 2012 switchover deadline."As part of the wider government objective of ensuring a smooth transition from analogue to digital TV broadcasting by 2012, CCK is planning to introduce competition in the signal distribution market segment through the licensing of two additional signal distribution networks," a statement from the regulator said.
