HONIARA, Solomon Islands (July 29, 1998 - PACNEWS)---A Solomon Islands communications company has made a bid to establish the country's first permanent on-air television service.

Director of the locally-owned Television Solomon Islands, Ashley Wickham, said a recent study provided abundant proof that a permanent commercial television operation in the Solomon Islands is viable.

This was proven recently, Wickham said, during his company's telecast of the World Soccer Cup from France.

In announcing Television Solomon Islands' bid for a permanent television license, Wickham also announced that, as partners in the World Cup broadcasts, his company and Solomon Telekom, Ltd. had made a joint profit of $SI 86,000 ($US 18,000).
