Azam media has received operator license to broadcast local channels. According to Azam Media CEO, Mr Tido Mhando, “Very soon, the FTA’s will be back on Azam decoders. As soon as they are back, one will be able to watch them even after expiry of their subscription fees while the Pay Tv channels will disappear.”
One of the representatives of the President’s Office, Mr Nditiye said. “Azam Media has already picked up the licence that will enable them to air local channels in seven months’ time”. Mr Nditiye, also other companies who owns decoders, got their licences removed due to the nature of their licences.
“Content dissemination through their decoders fall under international market system, which requires them to pay for the content,” said Mr Nditiye.
