It aims to achieve and sustain comprehensive tiol coverage. Above all it aims to achieve a common carrier status must be realized. Brief on the Corporation ... See more Uganda Television and Radio Uganda the current Uganda Broadcasting Corporation was born in 1963 one year after Uganda’s independence. It’s main aim was to broadcast through both mediums to the whole country. After independence till the mid 1980’s Uganda was faced with a lot of economic hardships. As a result many institutions including the tiol broadcaster suffered a general deterioration. It is with this background that the Ugandan Government saw the need to restructure the former Uganda Television and Radio Uganda. As a result Parliament passed the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation Act that established the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation in 2005. This transformed the former UTV and Radio Uganda into the now existent Uganda Broadcasting Corporation. The Corporation started it’s activities on the 16th of November 2005. The main aims of the Corporation are to develop the former Radio Uganda and UTV into a public tiol broadcasting center of excellence, for the purpose of providing electronic media and consultancy services that educate and guide the public. It also aims at achieving and sustaining comprehensive tiol radio and television coverage. UBC still remains 100% owned by the Government although not 100% finced by it. The Corporation realizes it’s income from the sale of TV and Radio airtime and rental of it’s technical facilities. UBC’s move to attain a common carrier status will ensure issues of tiol importance transmitted as one so that other commercial broadcasters obtain their live link from UBC.
