The government of Côte d’Ivoire has mandated that channels available on the country’s digital-terrestrial platform must be made available free of charge on pay TV bouquets in the country, according to local reports.
Côte d’Ivoire minister of communication and media Sidi Tiémoko Touré has instructed that pay TV services must now offer channels La Nouvelle Chaîne Ivoirienne (NCI), A+ Ivoire, Life TV, RTI1, RTI2, RTI 3 and Info 7 without charging for them, according to the reports.
Tiémoko said that satellite pay TV operators were now under an obligation to retransmit the DTT channels free of charge within their bouquets.
Tiémoko said that the measure was intended to guarantee free access to Ivorian DTT channels across the country.
