“Ghana’s quest to migrate from analogue television broadcasting to digital is in its final stage of construction and we are finalising processes to support our universal access obligation efforts by distributing one million set up boxes. This is because every citizen is entitled to the better picture, sound quality and interactivity that digital television broadcasting provides.”
