NTV Kenya's YouTube channel has been terminated following multiple incidents of copyright infringement.

The channel, owned by Nation Media Group, was terminated on Friday after several complaints about content posted on the channel.

On access trial, the channel read: “NTV Kenya has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted.”

A message by the management said auto-detection software found music posted on the channel.

"The music is from bumpers, montages, and sound effects for some features," the message added.

NTV Kenya received several copyright strikes, and are working with Google, and the complainants to resolve the matter.
