Let’s be honest and agree that local TV programming leaves your hairline invisible from all the frustrational pulling it endures. That’s why almost everyone is investing in a TV box that has other channels on it.
We have DSTv, GoTV, Strong, even a Muvi TV box that try to offer variety when it comes to channel choices. Another contender joining the match is Zuku, an entertainment service that offers TV facilities.
Zuku is a digital TV offer that has been launched in Zambia, with Strong Zambia as its sole distributor. It promises HD (high definition) channels for your viewing pleasure. It has over 20 channels and comes with 2 types of subscription offers. The first is Zuku Classic which has over 40 channels and is priced at K70, while the other is Zuku Premium which has over 100 channels and is priced at K140. There’s an additional package called the Asian buy-through for K105 that can only be purchased after buying one of the two main plans, and it offers over 20 channels.
The TV box is currently being sold at a launch price of K599 so if you’re interested you may want to buy it before the offer expires. That offer also includes free installation and a month’s Zuku Premium subscription free.
The Zuku brand is currently in Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and now Zambia and has two (2) offerings, digital TV and fiber connectivity. However the fiber connection is only available in Nairobi and Mombasa in Kenya. Hopefully, it gets to other countries as well. It’s about time the internet and TV service providers in Zambia got some competition.
The channels you should expect to watch include Fox Entertainment, FX, BET, E! Entertainment, Star Plus, Colors and SAB; MTV Base, Nickelodeon, KidsCo, Fashion One, Viasat’s four documentary channels, Nat Geo Adventure, Fine Living Network, MGM Channel, Zee Cinema, African Movie Channel Zuku TV but you can see the full list here.
You can get a Zuku TV box in Zambia at any of the places listed here. Payment for Zuku can be done via the mobile money service Zoona or at specific Strong Technologies outlets.
However it is important to note the trusted dealers who sell this TV box. Buying from unauthorized ones may create problems when it comes to support from the main distributor as they may not help you.
