Azuri Technologies has announced a new partnership that will bring content from DStv to off-grid households in Kenya.
The digital platform is bundling Azuri’s recently announced TV400 product, the 32” solar powered TV and household energy solution, with the DStv HD decoder.
Simon Bransfield-Garth, CEO of Cambridge-based Azuri said, “We are delighted to partner with Multichoice to bring the world-leading DStv content to our customers. By expanding the choice of content available to even off-grid customers, we are taking another step in shrinking the gap between households with and without the grid.”
An 80W solar panel combines with a 160Wh LFP battery with an expected life of over 10 years before servicing. The TV400 system also comes with two high power tube lights, two spotlights, a rechargeable radio, rechargeable torch and USB phone charging with extra capacity to support smartphones, and the DStv HD decoder.
“MultiChoice is always seeking new partnerships to find ways to offer great and affordable video entertainment to families across the country,” said Nancy Matimu, Managing Director MultiChoice Kenya. “We want to deliver our local content, telenovelas, world class sport and blockbusters straight into the hands and homes of our customers. This partnership with Azuri is one way that we are able to ensure our content is available to the widest possible audience throughout the country.”
The Azuri TV400 is available for KES 8,999 (€69) and a daily usage fee of KES 115 over 30 months.
