Its General Manager, Charles Ndongo, has just launched a national call for tenders for this purpose.

Cameroon Radio Television (CRTV) wants to diversify its audience. And to get there, the company is putting on the broadcast of its TV channel on the Internet. To this end, a national call for tenders has just been launched by the GM, Charles Ndongo.

It is a question of setting up an online streaming solution of the TV channel of the CRTV, we learn. The company which will be awarded the contract evaluated at 17 million FCFA with all taxes included will have a maximum of 60 days to execute the contract.

Currently, the CRTV has a website (crtv.cm) fairly regularly updated. No information is provided as to whether the announced streaming will be on the same platform or whether a new dedicated website will be developed.

The CRTV has focused on innovation through digital development. Most entertainment programs, as well as spoken news, now have a virtual set. Last February, General Manager Charles Ndongo announced the launch of three new thematic channels. These are two television channels, one dedicated to sport and the other to news. And a local radio station in Kribi, the seaside town of the Southern Region.

All these innovations, the GM indicated at the time, were part of the implementation of the resolutions of the national forum on the content of digital terrestrial television held in October 2015. It was a question of preparing progressive migration in terms of content, of six new thematic channels, in order to retain viewers and offer content that will compete with foreign channels.

In the end, CRTV will break out into six channels: CRTV (the main general channel), CRTV News, CRTV Regional, CRTV Sport, CRTV Culture, a cultural channel whose mission is the preservation of our values and CRTV Youth, the 100% young channel.
