Smart Tv is dead..Can Smart Tv Decoders be Used to access the content of Dstv or Zuku?

Written by

Oooh Smart Tv is dead in Kenya..RIP.  According to Businessdailyafrica,  Mohammed Nyaoga, chairman of Transmex, which owns Smart TV, revealed the acute lack of funding for the project.

“We have closed shop and are currently shopping for an international investor following the exit of the Swedish investors – Next Generation Broadcasting (NGB) — which has put us into financial constraints,”

And the  directors of the firm would meet on Friday to decide if subscribers will be refunded the Sh5, 000 they invested on decoders and the subscription fees for the month of January.

As we mourn the untimely death.. I have a question about the  Decoders. Can the Smart Tv decoders be used to access the content of  Dstv or Zuku?  Unfortunately, Smart Tv has left more than 2000 subscribers stranded. Can these 2000 subcribers move to either Dstv or Zuku and use the same decoders?

What is your opinion on the topic?
