A number of residents of Lower and Upper Pomeroon River, Region One and other hinterland communities have said they are not satisfied with the way the National Communication Network (NCN) is handling broadcasts of World Cup football.

They said it was reported in the media that President Bharrat Jagdeo had intervened and had made funds available to NCN so that the nation could view the matches live but this is not happening in their communities.

They said from all indications only NCN was given the right to broadcast the football and they are questioning why the other TV stations were not given equal rights.Residents from mainly Amerindian communities feel that they have been left out and are calling on Minister Carolyn Rodrigues to make representation on their behalf.

In the Amerindian communities television is the only means of entertainment and information. The residents pointed out that they do not receive signals from NCN but they tune into the station at Charity so some attention should be paid to this matter so they can view the remainder of the World Cup matches.
