Enugu — As Nigeria yesterday joined the rest of the world to mark World Television Day, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) said the country looks forward to full digitalization of her broadcast sector by the year 2015.
The Director General of National Broadcasting Commission, South-east zone, Mrs. Victoria Eke, said this yesterday in Enugu during the launch of Gotv, a new product that provides digital pay television service to subscribers in Enugu State. She said the NBC was looking forward to 2015 when the nation's broadcast sector would be fully digitalized with television viewers having clearer pictures and better services.
She said the Digital Video Television (DVT) is just a "preparatory ground" for the gradual phasing out of the analogue mode of broadcasting.
"What we have now is like a preparatory ground for the time when the analogue televisions that we have today will no longer receive digitalized signals," she said.
Represented on the occasion by Mrs. Susan Obi, an official at the NBC, South-east zonal office, Eke said the commission is totally against the activities of pirates in the country as they pose serious threat to original works of artistes.
