AzuriThe off-grid solar market is in the midst of a serious boom, already growing beyond the simple necessities of lighting and phone charging.

Azuri Technologies, pay-as-you-go solar technology provider, has unveiled its new 32-inch solar satellite TV system specially designed and customised for off-grid customers in Africa.

The 32-inch Azuri TV is the latest product release from the company which already has in its product portfolio a 24-inch solar satellite TV. Azuri was the first pay-as-you-go company back in 2016 to integrate solar TV with satellite entertainment in one affordable package for households without access to mains electricity.

Azuri’s 32-inch TV Solar Home System comes with 4 high brightness LED lights, mobile phone charging and a rechargeable torch and radio. More than 60 satellite TV channels and 20 plus radio channels complete the package.

To ensure durability and to meet the conditions of rural environments, the TV features Azuri ToughScreen technology, designed to resist accidental damage during normal use in the home.

The 32-inch AzuriTV will initially be launched in Kenya at only KSh129 per day. The company plans to launch the new TV in other markets across Sub-Saharan Africa later in the year.

Kenya has around 10 million households, yet only around 3.9 million households have TV.
