THE Fiji Broadcasting Corporation is pleased with the response it is receiving for its new television station.

In a statement, FBC said it had been flooded with calls since it began testing its new free to air VHF television signal in the Central Division.

"Many residents of formerly 'blacked out' areas around Naitasiri and Korovou have reported they are now receiving the free to air FBC TV test programs and both audio and video quality are excellent," the statement said.

"The FBC is pleased with the response which shows that its TV signal is now penetrating previously unreachable areas and the interior of Viti Levu.

"The FBC has also received numerous calls from residents in the Western and Northern divisions asking when they might be able to receive the FBC's free to air TV signal."

The corporation said test broadcasting to the west and north would be done within a few days.

It expects previously blacked out areas in the west and north to receive the high quality video and audio provided by the new service.

The new television station requires the normal VHF antenna.
