Solomon!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

Solomon said, “Great men are not always wise!
“Ole people sometimes do foolish things”
This time highly intelligent people got it mistaken
BBA is now at centre stage
Did they investigate to ensure they and Plus TV was on the same page?
Was this decision made by the BBA INSTITUTION?
Since you have the responsibility to draw the final conclusion
Was a decision made out of malice or misinformation?
Are you conspirators to close down fuh we Plus TV station?
At the end of the day our taxes will pay attorneys
In the final analysis our taxes will pay court fees

Belize Broadcasting Association is being ridiculous
Dehnya adults want to be mischievous
By saying Plus TV is not on air
This being the reason for not accepting license fees
Geez! Are these are people with degrees?
BBA please!
You are being ridiculous!
Your letter denying them licence is ludicrous
BBA, you are insulting us!
There is no suggestion of Plus TV breaking any laws
This decision seems to be flawed
We are hoping whoever made the decision made it while sleeping
Or while dozing off
Unaware of the chain reaction this is going to set off
Dah noh who have the first laugh

I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt
I am hoping by tomorrow a reverse of this decision can come about
And the apology dis yah your authoritative misstep deserve Will come forthwith from uhnu, dah BBA, mouth!
This will incur unnecessary court processes
Plus TV can sue for damages
The language itself is out of whack
The reason for not granting them licence it should be open for discussion
In this case it is true, true irrational
I don’t wanna assume it is political!

Not being on air
Anything digital is on air
If you say they not on air using audio
Love Fm can be on air using only video
They are on air using both audio and video
On cable, the World Wide Web, beaming signals
BBA, we are entertained by your resurgence
After becoming comfortable with your dormance
The presumption in you correspondence
Is indicative of your ignorance
I would refer to Solomon in this instance!

Licenseless Plus TV responds to Broadcasting Authority

The resource stressed Plus Television is having more difficulty staying on air after its owner, Louis Wade, applied for the wrong broadcasting license, according to the Belize Broadcasting Authority.

Wade applied to the BBA for an On Air Broadcasting License but the regulatory body says this was an error on his part. On air broadcasts are those that can be accessed without cable, like Channel 5 and 7. These media houses have a wider audience due to the ease of access; therefore, they can charge more for advertisement. Passing itself off as an on air broadcasting station is a deceitful act by a cash-strapped media house trying to increase advertising revenue.

The Belize Broadcasting Authority rejected Wade’s application and returned his money sent for the license. In a letter dated February 4, the BBA scolded Wade, “you have applied to have your on-air broadcasting license renewed for the year 2016, despite the fact that Plus Television is not broadcasting over the air. Therefore, the Board cannot approve the renewal of your on-air licenses.” The Board of Directors of the BBA recommended that Wade apply for a Cablecasting License, which is more suitable for the type of service he currently provides.

Wade told the Guardian Newspaper that he believes the BBA made a “genuine mistake in its decision”. Plus TV wrote to the BBA explaining that they have been providing open air service to residents in the Belmopan area for years on Channel 21. Furthermore, he says it is a license they have had for years and he hopes that the situation is rectified quickly.
