‘We Won’t Stop Showing Porn On TV’ – Ice TV

General Manager for ICE TV, Samuel Owusu Asare said his media company cannot desist from showing pornography films on their channels regardless the complaints made to the National Media Commission (NMC) and the Ministry of Information.

Two broadcasters, Messrs Tommy-Annan Forson and James Kwasi Oberko, have made a complaint against three television stations in Ghana for showing films with pornographic scenes on their channels.

The two, on Monday, 12th June, 2017, presented their complaint to the National Media Commission and the Ministry of Information against TV XYZ, Ice TV and Thunder TV, for showing these films to their audience.

“We have realized that these TV stations are showing things that are against the media commission’s standards and as concerned citizens, we thought it wise to make a complaint to the right authorities, to prompt them to take the necessary actions,” James stated.

But in a rebuttal, Mr Owusu Asare said since there isn’t any law banning TV stations from showing movies.

He added that, the porn movies are shown at ‘Ghost’ hours to ensure children don’t watch them.

“If there is no law against it then what is the problem? If something isn’t good then fine but if there is no law restraining it then there is nothing I can say or do…”

“Some people are just been hypocrites. If you’re a good parent, how can you leave your kid to stay up late till 1 am? Then it means you as a parent have a problem. It is aired at a ghost hour for adults only. I don’t see anything wrong with it. They want it…” he explained.

The General Manager of ICE TV said their audience have provided positive feedback thus until they protest, the TV station will continue to satisfy their viewers’ interest.

“From our research, we have adults, married people calling us and giving us feedback on social media. If you check more than 95 per cent of almost 300 comments shows we’re doing well…”

“It’s a business. We satisfy our viewer’s choice. On some Christian TV’s they air fetish priests’ shows and they claim its business. Till we are told it’s against a law then we won’t stop unless our viewers tell us they don’t want it shown anymore…” he stressed on Neat FM on Tuesday.
