Digital Migration: Will Nigeria Meet The June 2017 Deadline Date?
For many stakeholders, two crucial issues still rankle, and they are:
- The issue of sufficient public awareness: are 'all' Nigerians fully aware and informed? And secondly;
- The issue of universal access and the distribution of set-top boxes: does everyone now have access to digital TV signals?
Should the authorities believe that both or one of the issues above is not in the affirmative, then, the question becomes whether June 2017 deadline is still viable? And if not, what options do authorities have.
One thing is sure; deadline dates cannot be reset in perpetuity? Digital Broadcasting Africa will monitor and report on developments.
