Digital Migration in Ghana: Multi-stakeholder Workshop

20 June 2011

African countries are committed to migrating to digital broadcasting by June 2015. Africa’s digital transition in broadcasting has the potential to improve both the quantity and quality of what is available on TV and to increase the number of people who will be able to watch it. However, it is also a costly process and involves decisions on a range of issues which impact on both the costs and potential benefits of digital transition.

The transition from analogue to digital affects different stakeholders in different ways. This workshop will bring together key stakeholders from the different sectors impacted by digital migration.

Objectives:

  • Provide information on the key issues related to digital migration
  • Explore the current state of play in Ghana
  • Discuss approaches to addressing some of the key challenges
