Nigeria, one of Africa’s most liberalised broadcast markets, appears to be on course to meet its self-imposed target of June 17, 2012 as the change- over date to digital broadcasting transmission in the country. Industry regulator the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), the industry claims that cable and Direct – to – home (“DTH”) operators in the country are already transmitting digital signals.
