Street Talk: Govt.'s new T.V. station starts a conversation
Fatasione Leota, 52, Vaitele Fou
I only watch T.V. when the Manu Samoa rugby is on, and local news to know what is happening around Samoa.
With the Government having a television [station] of their own, well, to me, I support [it] fully, because it might lessen the cost of advertising, because like T.V3, T.V1 and other television station are so expensive. Also, I hope that this Government television station will inform the public about what is happening in the Parliament.
And it will be great to hear something new for a change, and see what the Government of Samoa is going through.
Joe Tialavea, 26, Faleapuna
I like to watch all the programmes [on] T.V. but [most of all] I watch local news, and the lali programme. For me, I support what the Government [is doing by] having their own television station because its shows that our government is developed. Also, we can now know what the government is doing for our country; and what is going on within the Government.
Joseph Mika, 28 Vaiusu – Uta
To me, I only watch the movies that come [on] at night, and also the rugby games. For me, the Government having a television [station] is a great idea because now all the people of Samoa can watch and witness everything the Government is planning, for example like the Parliament meeting[s]. I am totally support[ive of] the Government's television station.
Luisa Sauaga , 51, Apia
I only like to watch church services and gospel songs, and local news. But with the Government planning to establish a television station, well, it's a great thing [and] I totally support the idea from the Government.
By them having their own T.V. station it will provide the people [news about] what is happening in the Government.
Timo Fatu, 22, Sigamoga
To me I watch T.V. only when there [are] movies coming and also the rugby games of our country's team, the Manu Samoa. I totally support what the Government is planning [by] having a T.V. station run by them.
Also, them having a T.V.station while it will be good because, we can all know what is happen in our politics.
And this Government broadcasting will improve the understanding of the people [about] what is happen in Samoa.
