We all know that the local channel that will be airing free World Cup matches will not KBC as has been tradition. This year it will be NTV.

UPDATE: From a brochure issued by NTV and Kwese Sports, we now have all the 22 group stage matches to be aired by the channels between June 14 and June 28, the last day for group stage matches.

Some 24 more games will be played after the group stages and NTV will air 10. Stay tuned to know which these will be.

All times are in East African time.

EDITOR’S NOTE: It appears NTV have changed the order of games they had announced they would air before the World Cup started. Their brochures said today they would air the 9pm game (Croatia vs Denmark) but on their Facebook account, they say they’ll be airing the 5pm game (Spain vs Russia). A similar change happened on Saturday.

    • Let’s learn to appreciate what we are offered. KBC was giving you back what you offered them through taxation as a state corporation. NTV is somebody’s entity. Those matches were paid for. 32 out of 64 matches is a fair deal. Otherwise Russia is a stone throw away, board the plain brother…
