Pacific Games televiseddd news

No denial to TV news access says Pacific Games broadcaster

Local news networks said they'd been shut out by the host broadcaster and the local licence holder who in turn said, it was not the case.

Government owned TV1 said licence holder TV3 and host broadcaster MMG had shut out local news content through onerous broadcast fees and conditions on using games footage.

Conditions included charging local stations $US750 for three minutes of daily content which cannot be used until two hours after the event.
