• Digital Migration in Uganda: A consumer's experience

    As of February 2015 only areas within a 65km radius of Central Kampala are covered by the digital signal. However, by the end of the year the digital footprint is supposed to have increased to cover more parts of the country. The Uganda Communications Commission has set June 15th as the date on which the switchover from analogue to digital will begin. It remains to be seen whether the country will be ready for this switchover by that time. In the meantime, for those that are in the coverage zone the digital signal is up and running and quite clear. For those seeking to make the switch to free-to-air digital television there are 2 important pieces of equipment necessary; a TV set and a set top box (also know as a converter). Also, depending on where you are, an external antenna might ...

The Uganda Communications Commission has set June 15th as the date on which the switchover from analogue to digital will begin. It remains to be seen whether the country will be ready for this switchover by that time. In the meantime, for those that are in the coverage zone the digital signal is up and running and quite clear. For those seeking to make the switch to free-to-air digital television there are 2 important pieces of equipment necessary; a TV set and a set top box (also know as a converter). Also, depending on where you are, an external antenna might be necessary. I personally use a Chinese made set top box I bought from a company called Widestar in Kampala at a cost of 150,000 shillings. It has a smartcard slot should I ever feel the need to pay for subscription. Its is HD compatible and it has USB port to which I can connect a hard drive that I can use as a PVR to record programmes or from which I can view digital media files in a variety of formats. There are some cheaper models going for around 70,000 shillings that have no card slot and have no High definition capability. Channels At this point some might be wondering, “what channels do I get after I have set everything up?” In my trials I found that most of the common Free to air channels are on the 474MHz (474000 Khz) frequency. With a few others on the 594Mhz (59400 Khz) frequency. By these I mean channels like NTV, Bukedde, NBS and so forth. There are a few new channels out their and some that are testing their signals. I hope that there will be more stations Channels Available on digital UBC, NTV, WBS, Star TV, Record TV, Urban TV, Bukedde 1, Top TV, LTV, Miracle TV (Channel 44), Al-Jazeera, BBC, CCTV, CITIZEN, EA TV, Capital TV, ITV.. The following are testing their signal, HTV, ABS TV, Delta TV, RTV, Magic One, plus 2 others I cannot quite figure out.

[Sharad Sapra, UNICEF Uganda]: "The innovative technologies like these actually help create a digital bridge between those who have access to Internet and those who don't, in a low cost sturdy fashion." The first of its kind, the solar operated computer is housed within a recycled oil drum, for use in remote places where access to power is limited, according to project coordinator, Seth Hurr. [Seth Hurr, UNICEF Digital Drum Project Coordinator]: "The objective is to put them in places that are as rural as possible, areas where people don't have access to really any information, a lot of these villages and towns don't have full time teachers so they have schools but students don't really have access to anything in the way of information." Analysts say only about 10 percent of Uganda's population uses the Internet but using available resources, a new generation is bridging the gap.
