This report provides an outline assessment of the growth of the broadcast market in sub-Saharan Africa and its implications for spectrum allocation. The overall conclusion is that, based on projected future demand for TV channels, there are a considerable number of countries in Africa that require less than four broadcast television multiplexers (MUXs) and therefore a significant amount of spectrum that can be released for other services such as mobile. There is a small group of countries that are likely to need more than 4 MUXs. However more detailed spectrum management planning would need to be done to establish exact demand as their geographic location of channels is complex in several cases.
