Zuku acquires Ligue 1 Rights in Kenya

East Africa’s leading Pay TV provider Zuku has secured the Kenyan broadcast rights to French top division, Ligue 1 for the next three seasons.  
Through its customized Zuku Sports, five live matches and five games will be broadcasted on short-delay from each of Ligue’s 1 38 rounds. The Zuku coverage also comes with weekly previews and highlights shows.
Wananchi Group programming managing director Hannelie Bekker confirmed the Zuku acquisition last week.
Zuku, which is owned by Wananchi Group Holdings, also offers other customized programmes that include Zuku Africa and Zuku Life.

The acquisition hopes to give the firm an edge in the competitive Pay TV market dominated by South Africa’s DSTV (English Premier League exclusive right holders) and latest entrant Chinese StarTimes.
Apart from being a Pay TV service provider, Zuku Kenya provides broadband internet connectivity with speeds as high as 20Mbps including a VoIP telephony service to residential areas and offices through fibre-optic cables.
