" NAIROBI Kelly Oubre Jr. Wizards Jersey , Feb. 24 (Xinhua) -- A TV blackout in Kenya occasioned by a standoff between four broadcasters and the government over digital migration has not stopped Kenyans from acquiring set-top- boxes.

East African nation residents, both in rural and urban areas, are buying the gadgets in droves as they seek to migrate to digital broadcasting.

The blackout has entered the second week with both the four TV stations and the regulator, Communication Authority of Kenya, failing to cede ground.

Kenyans have, therefore Juwan Howard Wizards Jersey , been left in an information blackout, with majority complaining that they are missing their favourite local programmes and newscasts.

However, awareness about the digital migration is high, the reason why many are going for the set-top boxes despite the TV blackout.

A survey by research firm Ipsos-Synovate released last week indicated that four out of 10 Kenyans who own TV sets have bought set-top boxes.

It further noted that 60 percent of those who have not acquired the gadgets plan to buy.

Those in rural areas seeking to buy, particularly free-to-air digital set-top boxes, are acquiring them through their friends and kin in the capital Nairobi.

""It is important I have the gadget whether there is a TV blackout or not. I know that the TV stations would be switched on at one time John Wall Wizards Jersey , thus, they should not come back before I have the gadget,"" secondary school teacher Boniface Anjeche, who resides in Kakamega, said on phone on Monday.

The teacher was eagerly waiting for his brother in Nairobi to buy him a free-to-air set-top box after he sent him money.

""I sent him money on Saturday evening and he promised to buy and send the gadget via the courier services,"" he said.

In the town Jodie Meeks Wizards Jersey , as in others across Kenya, most of the set-top boxes readily available are those of pay TV firms StarTimes and GOtv.

The two have dropped prices significantly, selling pay TV set- top boxes at an average price of 19 U.S. dollars with monthly subscription going down to a low of 0.05 dollars per day for some banquets.

Their free-to-air decoders are going for between 38 dollars and 55 dollars.

The other free-to-air decoders, on the other hand, are being sold upcountry Kenya by few independent traders, whose prices are as high as 55 dollars as compared those in Nairobi at 36 dollars.

""The reality is that whether there is a TV blackout or not Jason Smith Wizards Jersey , we must migrate to digital broadcasting. I had ignored buying the gadget for sometime but I went for it three days ago,"" said Peter Muli, a computer technician in Nairobi, who bought a pay TV decoder.

A StarTimes sales agent in Nairobi noted that demand for the gadgets is still high despite the TV blackout.

The company and its rival GOtv have erected tents on nearly every street in the capital to reach as many people as possible.

""We have not seen negative change in demand of the set-top- boxes since the TV blackout started over a week ago. People are still buying them and we believe this will continue in coming weeks,"" said the agent at a stall along Moi Avenue.

Bernard Mwaso of Edell IT Solution in Nairobi noted that demand for set-top boxes is yet to reach its peak.

""People are aware they need to migrate, thus Ian Mahinmi Wizards Jersey , will buy the gadgets whether the TV blackout is there or not. Demand will, however, peak once the TV stations are back on air because Kenyans will be missing their favourite programmes.""
RAMALLAH, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian Presidency slammed Thursday the Israeli Prime Minister for laying corner stone for new settlement units in a West Bank settlement, Palestinian official news agency (WAFA) reported.

Nabil Abu Rudeinah, Palestinian President's spokesperson Gilbert Arenas Wizards Jersey , condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for laying foundational stones for over 1,000 units in Beitar Illit settlement located south of Bethlehem in the West Bank.

Abu Rudeinah said that the settlements are unlawful and East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza Strip are all Palestinian territories, in response to statements by Netanyahu in which he reportedly said that the West Bank and East Jerusalem are part of Israel.

"Settlement are basically illegal and the Israeli government has to immediately stop its destructive approach to the two-state solution," he said.

He also condemned Israel's announcement of evicting a family in the East Jerusalem town of Sheikh Jarrah for the benefit of Israeli settlers.

The presidential spokesperson urged the international community, especially the United States Chris McCullough Wizards Jersey , to interfere and to stop Israeli settlement activity, warning that this might lead to uncontrollable consequences.

Beitar Illit is the second largest Jewish settlement in the West Bank, built since 1990 as part of the Gush Etzion settlement bloc in the south of the West Bank, with nearly 50,000 residents.

According to Israeli media, Netanyahu attended a corner stone laying ceremony for a new neighborhood in the settlement Bradley Beal Wizards Jersey , where he reportedly said "we're connecting Beitar Illit to Jerusalem."

The issue of settlements is a major dispute that hurdled the Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations, and lead to its breakdown in March 2014, after nine months of U.S.- sponsored talks.
