Press release: Azuri’s unique PayGo Solar TV system now available nationwide at Mobicom

Azuri Technologies, a leading provider of PayGo solar home systems, announced today a new partnership with Mobicom Kenya to make its innovative Solar TV system available in 87 Mobicom shops country-wide.
For only KES 99 per day, rural off-grid customers can enjoy Zuku satellite Smart+ entertainment with an unrivalled 54 TV and 21 radio channels on an optimised 24-inch screen. The powerful solar system also includes four bright home lights, mobile-phone charging and a rechargeable radio and torch.
Customers can walk into any Mobicom store and sign up, and staff will install the Azuri TV system and demonstrate its use. Weekly payments can be made using mobile money.
Joseph Ndirangu, an Azuri TV customer from Ndaragwa, explained how the whole family loves the Azuri TV. “I watch news and documentaries while the kids enjoy CBeebies and my wife has her religious and soap channels. It really makes us feel that we are living in the city!”
Azuri’s CEO Simon Bransfield-Garth said: “Since we launched last year, many customers have told us Azuri’s Solar TV has changed their lives. I am delighted that with Mobicom we can now make Azuri TV available to more people anywhere- from Lamu to Kisumu and Kajiado to Lodwar.”
Rufus Maina, CEO of Mobicom commented: “In order to add value and enhance our telecommunication distribution business,  Mobicom is adding a PayGo home TV system which will also enable our customers to conveniently charge their mobile phones. We chose to partner with Azuri because of the comprehensive nature of its product and its reputation for quality.”
