Residents of Silhouette are now enjoying SBC digital TV with the installation of equipment to capture digital TV signal from Mahe and retransmitting over Silhouette.
A team of 4 engineers from the national broadcaster spent the weekend on Silhouette to do the necessary installation, then went door to door to ensure that residents are receiving SBC television.
Since the introduction of digital television, TV reception on Silhouette island was very poor, with residents barely able to watch a programme.
Now that Silhouette has moved to digital, residents and guests at the IDC Guesthouse can enjoy several free to view TV channels being offered on SBC TV, among which SBC 1, SBC 2, TV 5, CGTN, France 24 and RT TV. In Addition to that, they can also tune in to Radyo Sesel, Paradise FM and BBC radio.
IDC is neither cropping, nor selling bird eggs this season.
IDC has learned that some cartons of bird eggs with its logo there-on are currently in use and that a carton of bird eggs is being sold for up to SR1500. IDC would like to state that these are most probably boxes from last year that are being re-used by some other persons or agencies. IDC would like to reiterate that it is not selling bird eggs this year.
As a policy, IDC only crops bird eggs from Desnoeufs island once every two years. As bird eggs were collected last year, this year there will be no bird eggs from IDC.
