New TV and radio services for Tonga

The government of the Kingdom of Tonga has licensed two new television services as well as an additional FM radio service in the island capital of Nuku’alofa.

The additional services were allocated to local business families with existing licenses.  The license holders have not set a date to go on air but have announced it would be sometime soon after their set-up is completed, reports.

The services are expected to be free-to-air and encompass general entertainment programmes as well as those relating to education, sport, and civil society.
