Thanks to South Africa's DMTV Limited, Kenya this week became just the seventh country in the world to launch a commercial mobile TV service based on DVB-H, Europe's standard of choice (and a standard we might eventually enjoy in the US if MediaFLO
doesn't snuff it out
). Launch channels include mega-hits like Africa Magic, Africa Big Brother, and SuperSport Update, with a grand total of 10 stations at launch running 1,000 Kenyan shillings (about $15) a month. DMTV has committed to rolling out the service to all of Kenya's carriers, though it seems that coverage is limited to Nairobi at the moment.
