Four out of six commercial cities have DVB-T

In Nigeria, four out of the country’s six commercial cities now have digital TV transmission, according to Abayomi Olaiya Bolarinwa, Nigeria’s director of communications. However, he said acquiring set top boxes to convert analogue signals to digital ones remains difficult.
“We are not looking forward to any subsidy. What we are doing is public and private sector cooperation to drive this migration,” explained Bolarinwa.
He made the comments during the Digital Migration and Spectrum Policy Summit in Nairobi which ended on the 1st December.
