The migration to Digital Broadcasting has been a subject of discussion especially in Africa. There are several issues which should be considered in digital broadcast migration. Such issues border on regulation, market potentials, models and strategies for successful migration, regulation and content. Nigeria is of particular interest in Africa as it has the largest potential market for digital broadcast in Africa.
The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and Balancing Act, with support from the Open Society Institute (OSI), is undertaking an initiative which looks at the benefits and challenges that come with the transition to digital broadcasting in Africa.
