SBC for sale

There is no new yet on who is likely to win the bid for the Samoa Broadcasting Corporation sale. the State owned TV station was put up for sale earlier this year in the Governments encouragement of privatisation of public companies. So far the decision has not been made on who will take over Samoas first ever TV station. The sale will most likely have a tremendous impact on the future of the media in Samoa, depending on who takes it over. In the last few months the station has improved graphics and overall presentation to level matching that of New Zealand and Australia. SBC is also popular with the community for its traditional and cultural programmes which has only served to strengthen the Samoan culture.
