Ropate Valemei
Friday, December 21, 2012

FIJI Television Limited's existing licence was extended by the Minister of Communication, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum for a further six months.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum had moved it with effect from the end of this year.

In a letter dated December 13 to Fiji TV, he said the extension would be until further notice of any additional terms and conditions including spectrum allocation that may be prescribed.

Fiji TV would continue to broadcast under the terms and conditions contained in the existing licence for the extended period. The company was granted its first six months licence in June this year.

Fiji TV is the South Pacific's largest broadcaster in the region, excluding Australia and New Zealand.

It broadcasts its free to air station, Fiji One, via Sky Pacific to Fiji and 10 other Pacific Island countries.

It has a subsidiary company in PNG, Media Niugini Limited, which operates as EMTV. It is PNG's only free to air commercial station.
