East Timor: Portuguese Digital TV Project Covers Much Territory 14 Feb-13:52

The Portuguese aid mission to East Timor completed the distribution of 300 digital television receptors Wednesday, allowing selected schools, church organizations and Portuguese aid and peacekeeping units throughout the territory to tune in satellite broadcasts by Lisbon's RTP International network.

Among other objectives, the TV project aims to help promote the learning and use of the Portuguese language in East Timor, a major concern of Lisbon's aid mission in the former colonial territory.

Dili's East Timor Television already broadcasts several hours per week of RTP programing in Portuguese.
