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).

- encourage access to information
- Guarantee freedom of expression;
- diversify audiovisual contents

Communication (HAC.A)

satellite package operators. In 2017, the law on legal regime of
audiovisual communication has finalized the process.

Télédiffusion, was established late 2017 in order to ensure its
