The Minister of Communication, Mohamed Bouslimani, underlined today, Wednesday, in Algiers, the sector’s intention to equip the Radio and Television Broadcasting Company with a terrestrial station to host all private television channels and subject them to Algerian law.
During his visit to the headquarters of the Radio and Television Broadcasting Company in Bouzareah and the Center for Satellite Broadcasting in Bouchaoui, the minister indicated that for the purpose of subjecting all private television channels to Algerian law, “the Radio and Television Broadcasting Company will be equipped, by next February, with a terrestrial station to host private channels” noting that “these channels have not been subjected to Algerian law since their creation”.
The Minister of Communication stated that “as a first stage, a transmitter was acquired a few months ago, which allowed the hosting of most private television channels through the Radio and Television Broadcasting Company,” and that thanks to this station, they will “be fully subject to Algerian law.”
In a related context, Mr. Bouslimani stressed that “among the communications sector’s priorities, is the eradication of the problems of lack of coverage in the grey areas and the consolidation of the citizen’s right to receive all national radio and television programs,” which is the objective of the Radio and Television Broadcasting Company.”
He pointed out, on the same occasion, that “between January and July, these areas were reinforced with 23 transmitters to enable their residents to receive national radio and television programs, like the rest of the country’s provinces.”
