Digital Migration Starts In First Quarter 2018 – Andah

George Andah, Deputy Communication Minister

Government has assured its decision to switch from  from analogue to digital Television transmission will  take off by the first quarter of next year after it failed to meet its September 207 deadline.

This might  be a blow to individuals who still use analogue TV sets without digital boxes since they would not be able to view their favorite channels.

Speaking at the MTN Fiber Broadband launch Monday December 18, a deputy Communication Minister George Andah assured that in line with the Ministry’s mandate to drive the government’s digital agenda, “the National Terrestrial Television Migration process is taking off in the first and second quarter respectively.”

The migration is believed to be rolled out in phases starting from the first quarter of next year.

Government cited financial challenges as main reason for its inability to meet the September deadline for the migration process for the second time.
