Check Out The New Directives Issued To Startimes And GOtv By Lai Mohammed.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has recently issued new directives to digital television giants, Startimes and GOtv. This directive is in line with the Federal Government of Nigeria's plan to transit from analog to digital terrestrial broadcasting. The transition from analog to digital broadcasting has already been carried out already in 5 states. The Minister also promised to cover the remaining states before the deadline.

According to the Minister, the only frequency network recognized by the country are operated by two licensed signal distributors- Integrated Television Services (ITS) and Pinnacle communications. He said that Startimes and GOtv are carrying their own signals and in doing so, are going against the laws of the country and must migrate to any of the licensed signal distributors company recognized by the country.

He said that by Startimes and GOtv carrying their own signals, funds are not being generated by the licensed signal distributors thereby making it hard for them to survive.
