This is the ICTA’s Call for Inputs paper on The Future of Local Television Broadcasting in the Cayman Islands. There is an obligation on specific ICTA Licensees to provide a Local Television service where they also provide a subscription television service. It is now nearly ten years since that Local Television obligation was first drafted and much has changed in the Cayman Islands since then. As set out in the paper, the Authority is considering whether that Local Television service obligation is still fit for purpose and asks for your inputs by 7 May 2014. It is intended that the outcome of this process will be for the Authority to make recommendations, where appropriate, to the Government on possible amendments to current Licences and/or the introduction of Regulations dealing with the issues raised.
The Authority has also received inputs from the following:
In addition to the above inputs, the Authority received a form letter response from just over 300 individuals. You can see the form letter response here.
