The National Communications Authority (NCA) has revealed that Ghana is likely to miss the June 2015 analogue to Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) migration deadline.

The agreement was made during the Geneva 2006 conference organised by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to agree on and plan television frequencies for DTT broadcasting in Europe, Africa and parts of the Middle East.

The Director for Engineering of the NCA, Mr Henry Kanor delivering a speech at a stakeholders meeting dubbed Arena 2015 at the Conference Centre Tuesday, said Ghana’s inability to meet the regional and international deadline was not peculiar, as the entire West African sub-region was struggling to migrate.

According to Mr. Kanor, Ghana has made some gains in the migration but they have encountered some challenges such as financial constraints, technical and infrastructure constraints, public education and awareness and unpreparedness of independent broadcasters to migrate now.

Chairman of the National Media Commission Mr Krabral Blay- Amhihere, commended the organisers of the programme for providing another platform for stakeholders to deliberate on accelerating Ghana’s migration process.

According to him, the meeting would also foster further understanding among stakeholders to augment the efforts by national stakeholders, including the NCA and the NMC, to ensure stakeholders came to a concensus to ensure public understanding of the migration process.
