Kenyan body to probe MultiChoice East Africa’s football dominance

Kenya's competition authority (CAK) has launched an investigation into MultiChoice East Africa, the pay-television business of South African media company Naspers, over its coverage of football.

MultiChoice East Africa, which operates the DStv and Supersport pay-television platforms, has been accused by rivals of monopolising football rights.

MultiChoice East Africa is the only broadcaster of the English Premier League in the country.

“We are aware of the investigation and are cooperating with the CAK. We do not believe there are any transgressions on our part,” Naspers investor relations officer Meloy Horn told the Reuters news agency.
