(Business in Cameroon) - Charles Ndongo, Managing Director (MD) of the public Cameroonian broadcasting channel, CRTV, just launched a national open call for tenders for the implementation of an internet TV streaming solution.
The projected cost of the operation after preliminary studies is FCfa 17 billion, according to the MD. He specified that this request for proposals is open to Cameroonian companies. The deadline for submission is set for 6 June 2017.
Visibly going through a modernisation process, CRTV, as announced by Charles Ndongo in February, should open, in 2017, two new specialised TV channels. An expansion which is in line with CRTV’s policy in place since 2016 as part of the digital move.
The public broadcasting channel is planning to move from “broadcasting”, open to the entire world to “narrowcasting”, with targeted viewership. The opening of a local radio in Kribi, the Southern Cameroon seaside town, is also expected.
