Council files opposition vs digital channel application
by PIO release

The city council is opposing the application of Baycomms Broadcasting Corporation for the issuance of a certificate of public convenience to install, operate and maintain digital terrestrial television broadcast station in the city and the issuance of a provisional authority.

Members passed the resolution of protest after the applicant repeatedly failed to appear during its regular sessions over the past several weeks.

The applicant was invited to attend the council session to substantiate its application and explain to the local legislators the benefits of having the terrestrial television broadcast station.

Earlier, officials of the National Telecommunication Commission-CAR appeared before the regular session of the local legislative body but they were not able to update the members on the status of Baycomms’ application.

Among those invited in last Monday’s regular session but failed to appear are Elmer V. Catulpos, president of Baycomms Broadcasting Corporation and legal counsel Bobby John B. Gaytos.

The body pointed out the repeated failure of the company officials to appear during one of its regular sessions after a series of invitation illustrates their lack of interest in pursuing the project which deserves the opposition.

They said the applicant does not want to update local officials on the merits and status of their application filed with the NTC central office.

NTC-CAR officials also informed local legislators in previous meetings that the local government has the right to file their opposition to the applications of various telecommunications companies applying for the issuance of certificates of public convenience so that local officials could impose additional conditions for the put up of stations to make sure that the environment and health and safety of the people is guaranteed.

Under the terrestrial television broadcast set up, the applicant could split one channel into six sub-channels wherein two of the channels could be designated for pay per view, one channel for disaster response while it could apportion the three remaining channels for whatever purposes they want to operate the same.

The council wants to inquire from the proponent on the proposed site for its facilities, the presentation of the detailed plans for the broadcast station, among other issues and concerns that will be raised during the supposed deliberation of the application.

The local legislative body was furnished by the NTC central office with a copy of its notice of hearing that was earlier scheduled purposely to deliberate on the application of Baycomms for the operation of the terrestrial television broadcast station in the city for its appropriate action and information.
