Three of Kenya's main private television stations are unavailable in most of the country due to a row over the switch from analogue to digital transmission.

The analogue signal for KTN, Citizen, NTV and its subsidiary QTV was turned off over the weekend.

The TV stations then switched off their digital signals in protest.

This is the latest twist in a long-running dispute over the switch to digital broadcasting, which has led to several court battles.

State-run broadcaster KBC and K24 TV, which is owned by the family of President Uhuru Kenyatta, remain on air.
