Crtv in Cameroon seeks partnerships to receive its digital TV signal

The Cameroonian public channel, Crtv, is looking for partnerships to receive its digital TV signal. To this end, the Minister of Communication, Issa Tchiroma Bakary (photo), created an ad hoc committee on 18 October 2017.

In detail, Issa Tchiroma Bakary explains that this committee is responsible for the densification and diversification of the digital bouquet of the Crtv, from an attractive and market perspective. In addition, the ad hoc committee must look for the most appropriate formulas for equitable public access to the bouquet. Moreover, it will be a question of negotiating various partnerships for the acquisition of digital terminals. Finally, the committee will develop a platform of actions for the exploitation of the digital bouquet of the Crtv.

The Cameroonian government has entrusted the Chinese company StarTimes Ltd, the market for the technical rehabilitation of Cameroon Radio and Television (Crtv) since November 21, 2014. For a total amount of 110 billion FCFA, this project should allow the public television to move from analogy to digital. The commercial aspect of the digital TV signal is therefore launched.
