PAY TV BLACKOUTS

In recent times, the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) has received many complaints from consumers who turn on their television sets to view a particular programme and instead are greeted by a “BLACKOUT” screen.

We have taken note and wish to provide some clarity to consumers of subscription broadcast television services, more commonly known as “Pay TV” and who experience this “BLACKOUT” screen from time to time.

Results of Digital Divide Survey

In 2013 the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (the Authority) conducted its second digital divide survey. 

The Digital Divide refers to the gap that exists between persons who have access to basic telecommunications and broadcasting services and those who do not.  The survey is therefore aimed at identifying the extent of that gap where under served communities and under served population groups, inclusive of persons with disabilities exist.

The results of this survey will aid the Authority in planning its Universal service initiatives in the future.
