Vietnam plans cable TV restructuring

Louise Duffy RapidTVNews | 03-07-2012

Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) is considering restructuring the cable TV market.

According to VietNamNet Bridge, only three national enterprises and five local enterprises are likely to be retained instead of the existing 40.

Deputy minister of MIC Do Quy Doan said that the development of TV stations has been in disorder". He said a lot of enterprises have applied for licences to provide pay-TV services and it is therefore necessary to draw up a detailed programme on service development which clearly shows the subjects and the scale of implementation.

Vietnam has committed to ASEAN to implement TV digitalisation in 2015-2020.

Tran Minh Tuan, deputy head of the Strategy Institute under MIC, said there are four components in the strategy on radio and TV broadcasting development - content, service, infrastructure and user.

The content production has been undertaken by 67 radio and TV stations, both national and local. However, Tuan said that the quality of the programmes produced by the TV stations in mountainous areas is low.

To date, the coaxial TV service has been developing very slowly. Though 40 enterprises have jumped into the field, the service still cannot develop with just several thousands to several tens of thousands of subscribers for each enterprise. Especially, the enterprises have been using backward technologies, which partially explains why it cannot attract users.

Tuan emphasized that its very difficult to draw up a development strategy for cable TV industry. Since there has been no reliable survey on the total demand and the scale of pay-TV services in Vietnam, its still impossible to calculate how many service providers should be in the market.
