Some 3,800 selected rural families who live in areas where the Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) transmission is very poor or not available in Sabah and Sarawak will be getting a free 32-inch LCD television plus an Astro decoder each.

It is courtesy of the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture under the RTM Rural Transmission Expansion Programme (RTE), an effort to extend national television and radio broadcasting services to remote villages in both states.

Ministry Content Postal Division, Communications Sectors Secretary, Haji Suandi Hassan, said 1,800 of the TV sets will be distributed in 17 districts in Sabah while the remaining 2,000 are for those in Sarawak.

The first 21 units will be handed over to selected families from Penampang, where an official launching of the programme will be held at SK Moyog next Friday," he told a press conference at the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) Sabah and Labuan regional office, Friday.

Suandi said they were in the final stage of purchasing and distributing the rest of the TV sets for the other districts and expect the contractors involved to start delivering and installing the equipment in two to three weeks.

The selected families would get Astro decoders to allow them to receive the transmission through satellite signal, adding that the Astro decoder would be installed for free and recipients will also enjoy a five-year free Astro subscription.

Eight TV channels would be provided under the free package namely TV1, TV2, TVi, TV3, Astro Prima, Astro Arena, Astro TVIQ and NatGeo Wild, apart from all the 14 radio channels available in Astro.

Suandi said the government has granted RM5 million to implement this programme, which would be carried out in collaboration with the MCMC, RTM and Astro.

RTM's transmission presently covers about 88 per cent of the total area in Sabah.

All recipients were identified based on two criterion, namely residing in areas where the signal from RTM's ground towers is not available; and have access to electricity supply.

"The programme is meant to enable villagers in rural areas in Sabah and Sarawak to receive free RTM transmission like those in areas where the signal from the ground tower is available," he said.

"Overall, the percentage of the population who still do not have coverage is small.

We have already penetrated most of the areas, except for certain hilly areas where the geographical structures block the signal from reaching the houses," he said.

Although they have not set a specific time frame, he said the Government was continuously looking for the most efficient way to achieve 100 per cent penetration.

The programme in Sabah is expected to be officially launched by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, to be witnessed by Penampang MP and Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Tan Sri Bernard Dompok.
