Zimbabwe to launch program on national digital television platform

Government in Zimbabwe has announced that the broadcast on the digital TV platform will begin in the coming weeks. Television channels are being tasked to start broadcasting their programs on the DTT platforms.

For now, only the public broadcaster, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, will be present on the platform with its ZBC television channel. The authorities hope to add five additional channels to fill the six channels available on the platform.

The ministry has asked the regulator to ensure that more television channels are quickly available on TNT Zimbabwe platform.

However, the DTT migration process in Zimbabwe is far from completion. Of the 48 transmitters to be installed, only 18 are operational while the transition to TNT began four years ago.
