The General Manager for Ice TV, Samuel Owusu Asare said his media company will not stop showing pornography on their channels despite the complaints made to the National Media Commission (NMC) and the Ministry of Information.

Mr Owusu Asare said there is no law which bans TV stations from showing such movies hence their decision.

“If there is no law against it then what is the problem? If something isn’t good then fine but if there is no law restraining it then there is nothing I can say or do.”

He further told Accra-based Neat FM that, the porn movies are shown at late hours to ensure children don’t watch them.

“Some people are just being hypocrites. If you’re a good parent, how can you leave your kid to stay up late till 1 am? Then it means you as a parent have a problem. It is aired at a ghost hour for adults only. I don’t see anything wrong with it. They want it.”

He added that they have so far received positive feedback from their audience have provided positive feedback and will only stop showing them when they protest.

“From our research, we have adults, married people calling us and giving us feedback on social media. If you check more than 95 per cent of almost 300 comments shows we’re doing well.”

“It’s a business. We satisfy our viewer’s choice. On some Christian TV’s they air fetish priests’ shows and they claim its business. Till we are told it’s against a law then we won’t stop unless our viewers tell us they don’t want it shown anymore.”

On Monday (June 12, 2017) two broadcasters reported three television stations – TV XYZ, Ice TV and Thunder TV – to the NMC for showing pornographic films on their channel.

Mr Tommy-Annan Forson and James Kwasi Oberko argued the showing of those materials is against the broadcasting standards for television stations irrespective of what time of the day they are shown.

Many including the petitioners expect the NMC to penalise these media houses.

However, the Executive Secretary of the Commission, George Sarpong, said that currently media houses in the country cannot be sanctioned due to the regulatory regime currently in place
