“Digital migration is the best thing that can ever happen to a country, especially in terms of broadcasting because it gives the government a wide spectrum; government can license up to 28 local channels whereby currently on the analogue spectrum, it cannot license any more TV stations,” Naggujja explained.


She added: “Ugandans must understand why this is taking place because this is not only for Uganda but was decided by the IT International Telecommunications Union.


Naggujja said this should be further embraced by Ugandans stating that “when a digital local TV station is taken on StartTimes Kenya, people in Kenya will be exposed about Ugandan culture and the advertisers on the channel will get more mirage”.


“Ugandans should quickly come on board and support this move because digital migration is real and a must.”


As part of preparations to migrate from analogue to digital broadcasting, Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) switched off the free-to-air televisions services for three days in the months of August this year which caused a lot of panic among the people of this country.


The digital migration exercise is a fulfilment of a July 2006 International Telecommunication Union (ITU) resolution (to which Uganda is signatory) and requires all countries to have shifted all their television broadcasting signals from Analogue to Digital by June 2015.


The policy on Analogue to Digital migration was approved by Cabinet in April 2011, providing for UBC as the sole signal distributor for at least five years.
