NBC licensed Chapters digital television

ABUJA — The National Broadcasting Commission has licensed Chapters Digital Television to carry out Direct-To-Home (DTH) broadcasting operation in Nigeria.

Presenting the Licence certificate to the Chairman, Chapters DTV, the NBC Director General, Mr. Emeka Mba, noted that the coming onboard of Chapters Digital TV was a demonstration of faith in the potential that Nigeria still holds.

“We are into exciting times for Television in Nigeria. We will ensure that digitization attracts and promotes investment and that those who are ready to play by the rules and are serious in the industry reap the full benefits of their investments.”

“We often find that once some operators get this licence, they often relax. But if you actively engage the Commission, in terms of any issue that you may face, you will find that we would be very helpful.”

The Director General congratulated Chapter DTV on behalf of the Board, Management and Staff of the Commission and wished them success in their operations.

Responding, the Chairman of the Company, Mr. Akpobire expressed his appreciation to the Director General and to the Commission for the professional manner with which the Commission handled the licensing process and expressed their commitment to working with the Commission towards success. He promised that Chapters DTV will effectively serve the public as the company launches its service in Nigeria.

The presentation came to an end with a group photograph.
