Antillean Television Company will be separated from UTS
WILLEMSTAD – The coalition parties have agreed to separate the Antillean Television Company (ATM) from its mother company United Telecommunication Services (UTS). This separation anticipates a decision on how the company is to function in the future.
The decision of the coalition parties assumes that ATM, or better known as TeleCuraçao, will come under a private management, Supervisory Board, but also will have its own shareholders. All of this should become separated from UTS.
The opinions on what form TeleCuraçao should have are divided. Within the coalition there is no agreement yet on that. The ideas range from about a public broadcaster without advertising revenue that only shows educational and social programs or a 100 percent commercial channel which is entirely dependent on advertising revenues.
