TV station to offer free advertising services for Businesses, Safaricom, others urged to expedite to

Kenya’s Television Company, TV47, is set to offer free advertising on its TV station for Businesses so as to safeguard the public and mitigate the spread of the deadly Coronavirus Disease (COVID19).

“We at TV47 are in support of measures taken by the Government of Kenya to safeguard the public and keep livelihoods going.
In this regard, we wish to appreciate the business entities that are resilient and putting on the Kenyan spirit to sustain their businesses. We wish to support your business and the measures are taken to be at the forefront of championing COVID-19 awareness by giving you FREE advertising in our 24-hour, nation-wide TV station,” reads a presser from the Company.

“You can advertise your business and enumerate measures your company is taking to mitigate the spread of the virus. This initiative is geared towards providing a platform for continuous interaction with your clients and visibility of your business,” adds the memo.

This comes even as Kenyans continue to plead with other key service providers to cut charges so as to ease the burden cost. With the current curfew, most citizens (more so those working in twilight and wee hours) are finding it hard to satisfy their needs.

Giant Telecommunications Company, Safaricom responded by scrapping fees charged on sending amounts below Sh1,000 but this may not be sufficient as Kenyans want a review of call, SMS and internet costs.

Other utility companies that would consider revising charges include: The Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC), Airtel and Pay TV service providers (like DSTV, Zuku, Star Times, GoTV and others).

The scrapping of advertising cost by TV47 will be a welcome move for most companies struggling with the effects of the current COVID19 Pandemic; with job and pay cuts for employees looming. Interested companies or individuals can contact TV47 via Email at [email protected] or phone: 0748 205 604.
