The Ghana Ministry of Communications and Digitalization has revealed that government has advanced processes to settle on a company that will oversee the country’s migration from Analogue Terrestrial Television transmission to Digital Terrestrial Television.
The move which is in conformity with the International Telecommunications Union requirements will ensure effective and efficient collection of TV licenses through the use of technology.
The government has already completed the necessary infrastructure that will be used by the company for the migration with the establishment of the Central Digital Transmission Company Limited.
The Minister for Communications and Digitalization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful spoke to the media on the progress made so far.
She stated that the Communications and Digitalization Ministry will no longer handle the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) but instead find a replacement company to work with.
“As you’re aware, the Ministry of Communication and Digitalization will not be managing the Digital Terrestrial Television platform for transmitting your content to the country. The Digital Migration policy that has been approved by Cabinet mandates that we set up a company to come and manage this on our joint behalf, and we are in the process of identifying the person who will do it,” she stated.
