Description

Commitment 10 : Liberalize television space
July 2018-June 2020
Main implementing agency/
actor
Ministry of Communication and Media
Commitment description
What is the public interest
issue to be addressed by
this commitment?
- limited liberalization of television sector ;
- limited expression plurality;
- insufficient stimulation of a creative and competitive
ecosystem;
- low level of Ivorian audiovisual works.
What is the commitment ?
To ensure that liberalization is as meaningful as possible, the
commitment will consist in:
- constructing a building to host the network head;
- making the signal available to enable all TNT channel
editors to broadcast.
How will the commitment
contribute to solve the
public problem?
The liberalization of the audiovisual sector is a process to
foster cohesion and openness of the media playing a key role
in the construction of a balanced, operational and socio
educative public sector.
The triad of "Inform, Educate, entertain" therefore make sense
with the emergence of Ivorian operators having national and
regional editorial offer to create a close link around
information in the areas of agriculture, economy, health,
transport or eduction.
by opening the audiovisual landscape, the Government
ensures diversity of opinions (diversity of contents and
editorial lines), strengthens the right to information.
There are 7 channels which shall broadcast in other words, on
TNT network as early as 2018 over more than half of the
territory (100% covered at the end of 2019).
Why is this commitment
relevant to OGP values?
this commitment is relevant as it allows to:
- encourage access to information
- Guarantee freedom of expression;
- diversify audiovisual contents
Additional information the liberalization has been achieved: a call for tender was launched in 2016 by the High Authority of Audiovisual
Communication (HAC.A)
HACA has selected four (4) TNT channel operators and two (2)
satellite package operators. In 2017, the law on legal regime of
audiovisual communication has finalized the process.
The national broadcasting operator, Ivoirienne de
Télédiffusion, was established late 2017 in order to ensure its
deployment.
