The world of entertainment has really changed over the last few years. Gone are the days when Kenyans had to wait for months to see a just released movie or series. With the rise of streaming platforms, everyone in the world can watch the same thing at the same time. All you need is a reliable Internet connection and a device to watch on. Now that you’re home because of the coronavirus pandemic, these are some of the most popular streaming platforms in Kenya that you can enjoy.
