Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure ?: 

1. Diversity of media channels through which creative content is disseminated to viewers across Uganda. There are currently television stations that exclusively broadcast music or film content throughout the day.
2. The quality of broadcasts enabled by Set Top Box has been boosted including brighter, sharper and clear images and improved sound quality. This makes the local music and film broadcasts attractive and quite competitive thereby improving the local market share.
3. Improved signal strength in most areas of Uganda has expanded access to television broadcasting even to traditionally excluded regions.
