Zuku TV performed favourably in our previous reviews. Notable was the affordable price of equipment and installation, packages and price and signal quality and customer care service. Zuku TV is owned by Wanainchi Group, a Kenyan-based satellite TV home entertainment service provider which a presence in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia. Zuku TV along with Azam TV and Star Times broke DSTV’s decade’s long monopoly in subscription-based home entertainment. The biggest motivator for these companies remains the high cost of DSTV equipment, installation and TV packages.
