Namibia: State TV Station Gets Programmes Content From Japan
Content and TV programming from scores of television stations in Japan have been given to Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) free of charge.
According to sources close to the Japanese Foreign Affairs department, the cost of paying for the rights of the initial 21 Japanese television programmes already provided to the NBC which is estimated to be up to US$ 120,000 will be borne entirely by the Japan Foundation.
The offered content from Japan varies from drama to documentary, from technology to industry and economy plus nature and science. It also included some animation programmes for the young audiences
The Director General of NBC, Benjamin Stanley Similo said that accepting content and programming from Japan "is in line with its legal mandate to inform, educate and entertain" the people of Namibia.
He said the organisation Head of Content Hub, Ms Maria Indongo-Nepaya, would look at the content received and decide what will be aired.
