Local network forges new partnership

A LOCAL television network has forged its partnership with the largest Christian television network in the world, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) in its effort to boost its program content.
Mai TV, one of the major free to air commercial television networks in Fiji, made the partnership known on Sunday, which will see an injection of programs that “reinforce wholesome, positive, family values that are particularly important and applicable”.
Company chief executive officer Raijeli Vulaono said this was part of their continuous effort to distinguish Mai TV as a home for unique and compelling programs.
“These new programs build on the pathway that Mai TV has embarked on, providing our viewers enriching programs that all Fijians can enjoy as a family,” she said.
The new changes to content are also understood to be part of Mai TV’s new ownership with shares being acquired by local church, the New Methodist Christian Fellowship.
The new program line-up further builds on existing programs that Mai TV will continue to show, the company assured in a statement.
“Mai TV is gearing itself up for the Walesi digital platform roll-out in December and committed to providing alternative wholesome family and local sports content,” Mrs Vulaono said.
“As Fiji continues its migration from analogue to digital (Walesi) which places Mai TV on a level playing field alongside the other two TV broadcasters, Mai TV envisions greater shows and programs that our viewers can look forward to.”
