DTT to arrive in Cape Verde by mid-2015

Monday 19 November 2012 | 11:06 CET | News
Digital terrestrial television (DTT) should replace analogue broadcasting in Cape Verde by 17 June 2015, meeting the deadline set by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The information was released by the chairman of the National Communications Agency (ANAC) of Cape Verde, David Gomes, during a workshop on the strategic plan for the transition to DTT, and reported by Portugal's Lusa news agency. The plan is to create a single digital signal transmission company. The investment cost is estimated at EUR 7 million, although the sum could be significantly reduced by exploiting the existing infrastructures of broadcaster Radio e Televisao de Cabo Verde (RTC). The company responsible for the transmission and distribution of the DTT signal could be owned by the state, companies from the sector as well as private individuals.
