The NCA explained that it took off channels on the K-Net platform because they violated Section 2(4) of the Electronic Communications Act 2008, Act 775.

But in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, Corporate Affairs Manager for Group Ndoum Richard Keelson said officials of NCA have apologised to them after they met the Authority on Thursday.

“it’s very unprofessional on the part of the NCA and we didn’t take it lightly at all. So we went there yesterday, they have apologized to us and asked us to do re-application. We’ve done that, the cost element has been paid, and hopefully by day or latest by early next week Monday or Tuesday we should be within the satellite domain again.”

Mr. Keelson added that ATV is a platform that “has wonderful viewership, a good content and a platform that people watch globally because we are on satellite... We’ve spoken to our advertisers, they’ve understood us and when we are back on air, we will make it up to them for the lost time.”
