The Federal Government says there will be no more subsidies, either of set top boxes or Signal carriage as it plans to resume the rollout of Digital Switch Over (DSO), a transition from analogue to digital television broadcasting.


The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who disclosed this today in Abuja at a “Digiteam” meeting to foster dialogue among the various stakeholders in the DSO architecture stressed that while the government is looking for money to pay outstanding debts and restart the DSO roll out, the process will be fully private sector driven and self sustaining.

Mohammed charged stakeholders at the meeting to come up with a strategic plan for a resumed rollout, with an expressed commitment to continue with the process until every state has been covered.
