According to the petitioners, from May 26 and June 7, 2017, after 'painstaking monitoring', they observed that three television stations, ICE TV, TV XYZ and Thunder TV have been showing pornography which is a breach of the “Broadcasting Standard Guidelines against portrayal of sex...”

However, many Ghanaians appear to appreciate that kind of programming. One of the television stations cited by the petitioners, ICE TV, put up a post on Facebook on Wednesday May 10, 2017 asking their viewers if they should cease showing what they called ‘late night adult movies’.
