The digital television platform in Fiji is expected to be launched soon.

Attorney-General and Minister for Finance, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, confirmed there will be a soft launch in the Lami-Nausori corridor by October.

He further said they hope to have a full launch around November.

This will then be extended to the Western Division by March next year.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said: “It’s going through a test period at the moment. In fact it’s running on the second floor of Suvavou House where you can get digital television.”

A substantial investment of around $16 million is expected to be made.

“We have also set up a separate company that is going to manage the digital television side of things – it’s an independent company and is called Walesi as in wireless,” he said.

“They will be managing the digital output. But we are looking forward to this.

“The spectrum has much greater capacity in terms of output of the channels you can see through a smaller spectrum output.”
