The Children’s Day is here! Children’s Day is a commemorative date celebrated annually in honor of children. In 1925, International Children’s Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare. Since then, it is celebrated on June 1 in most countries. For this special day, a programme named Star Kids Gala will be on ST Kids Channel, 18:00 CAT, June 1st. The 30-minute length English program will be a compilation of dances, songs, magic shows and other fascinating content to be enjoyed by the young audience.

ST Kids is one of the most popular channels among children. During the pandemic, a special program titled Homeschooling was launched for children to keep up their learning pace with their peers when offline schools are not available, and thus to create more topics for the young ones to talk about. The other On Air programs including The Guardians of Carcosa, Jelly Jamm and Fantasy Westward Journey also contributes to the progress in imagination and creativity for children.

Recently, StarTimes launched another kids channel named TOONAMI. It is produced and distributed by Warner, and is positioned as an animated superhero channel for teens aged 6-14 with classic series including Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Lego Super Heroes and Dragon Ball. Another channel coming soon on StarTimes is CBEEBIES. It was produced and broadcast by the BBC in 2002 and is aimed at children aged 6 and under for developing learning, independence, social skills and emotional control. The channel has won the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television) Channel of the Year award five times. It is currently broadcast in over 100 countries worldwide in six languages.

The StarTimes Brand & Marketing Director Isma Lule said, “It is quite a hard time for everyone, however, together with all parents, StarTimes would like to offer a joyful time for the young audience especially on their own festival. With our e-commerce platform StarTimes Go, you can now shop online by going to ugmall.startimestv.com to make an order for a StarTimes decoder or any other product of your choice or call 0317117700.”

The NBA 2019/20 season has resumed after nearly five months break occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic. Pay Television Company StarTimes will broadcast the games through the ESPN channel.

The NBA games will be unlike any previous year with COVID-19 SOPs keeping fans away and the action taking centre stage at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex, inside Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The StarTimes Uganda Marketing Director, Isma Lule noted that basketball is rapidly gaining popularity in Uganda, as StarTimes we are excited to bring the best Basket Ball league in the World to Ugandans. Stars like James Lebron and Giannis are such an inspiration in the basket Ball community. The Action will be live on ESPN Channel on Classic , Smart Bouquet and on Smart phone via the StarTimes GO App

Only the best 22 of the league’s 30 teams will participate. Each team will play eight games to finish the regular season. From these, the top seven teams in each conference will advance, with the final eighth seed in each conference being determined by a potential play-in tournament before the traditional 16-team playoffs.

LeBron James’ LA Lakers are the outstanding favorites to take the title. When the NBA season was postponed, the Lakers sat atop the West with a 49-14 mark.

In the West, the other contender is the Clippers. Prior to the beginning of the 2019-20 season, the Clippers were considered favourites to win the title after they added to their ranks Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

The only squad with a better mark than the Lakers is the Milwaukee Bucks. Led by the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo, they have benefited from playing in the significantly weaker Eastern Conference.

NBA on StarTimes is a continuous assurance to our customers, that we shall always give you affordable quality sports.
