No extension to digital migration deadline, world body says

24 February 2015, 17:01 William Korir

Nairobi - There will be no extension to the global digital migration deadline, the International Telecommunications Union ITU has said.

The ITU was responding to queries from the government over claims by local media houses that some 30 countries have been awarded 3 month extensions to migrate from analogue to digital.

The current migration date is June 17, 2015.

Reports by the media houses had stated that there is need to consider an extension for Kenya too, as is the case with other countries.

However, a statement by the ITU Media Operations Centre confirmed that there would be no extension to the migration date.

" ITU confirms that there is no extension to the UHF bands of the 30 countries mentioned in the report. The migration date globally remains 17 June, 2015," the body said.

The Communications Authority of Kenya CAK had earlier complained of the article carried on a local daily stating that there would be extensions from the ITU.

The CA though, stated that it was concerned that there are misleading reports of a change in the migration date which were meant to make it look bad in the eyes of Kenyans.

" The Communications Authority of Kenya has noted with concern, misleading reports published in some local media that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) had allowed some African countries to extend their digital migration deadlines beyond the 17th June 2015," the CA said Monday.

" These reports are not only erroneous but are misleading as the perpetrators have not produced any evidence of such an action by ITU. In any case, as mentioned above, the procedure for amending Geneva 2006 (GE-06) Agreement is very well laid out. An amendment to the GE-06, which set the digital migration deadlines, cannot be undertaken unless it is done through a conference involving all the countries that signed the GE-06 Agreement," It added.

Members of the ADN consortium are currently off air and have been lobbying to get back on analogue signal as they seek time to convert to digital signal.

The ADN consists of TV stations such as NTV, KTN, Citizen TV and QTV.
