SUVA, Fiji (Fiji 1 News, August 31) - Television viewers in Fiji won’t have to immediately discard their aerials or antennas once Fiji TV’s new satellite-delivered 12 pay channels is up and running.

While many still remain unclear on what this new service will mean, there’s assurance that it will still be some time before people will be required to make that transition from their old and faithful TV antennas to the new and sophisticated satellite dishes.

It’s a common sight on almost every rooftop in the country but one, which in time is likely to change.

But it’s a transition that’s not likely to happen overnight, or as straight forward as it sounds. And like the introduction of Sky TV, 8 years ago, this new 12 pay channels is not expected to overtake the current service.

With time already winding down on the delivery of this new pay service to usher in a new era in television for the country, there is still cautious optimism.

Until then, only one thing is for sure; the good old faithful TV aerials and antennas days on rooftops are now numbered as it prepares to make way for the new.
