The government has made allocations for Walesi Digital Television.
Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they have funded this to provide high quality free-to-air-television stations to Fijians.
“It’s being funded with 19 million dollars to fund the roll out of the recently launched mobile application, fund the company’s operating services and the licensing cost of different content on the platform”
He says through Walesi they aim to cultivate a more knowledge based society.
“We don’t need to say how much Walesi has revolutionized television in Fiji because our citizens are already living the experience, many at this very moment”
Sayed-Khaiyum says through Walesi Fijians get a chance to enjoy a high quality television with families and communities.
