Adult Movies: ICE TV to go to court over porn ban

The Management of ICE TV, a private television station in Accra banned from showing pornographic movies, has threated to sue the National Media Commission for ordering it to stop showing the adult content.

The General Manager of the station, Samuek Asare Owusu, said he will go to court to ensure that the order by the National Media Commission is obeyed by all TV stations in the country.

He told Accra-based Citi FM: “This order that has been given to us, we will abide it but we want to make sure that it is going to apply to all other TV stations.

“We will come back to seek more clarification from the court because you cannot tell us to stop showing pornographic materials and later on we’ll see other TV telecasting such materials, we wouldn’t take that kindly.”

Ice TV is one of three private TV stations known for airing porn movies and banned from doing so

His threat comes after the MNC blocked some three television stations from telecasting “pornographic materials” late evenings.

This comes after some ace broadcasters petitioned the National Media Commission to take action against television stations that show pornography.

In the said petition, the two ace broadcasters, Tommy Annan-Forson and James Oberko said from May 26 to June 7, they monitored and realised that that stations like Ice TV, XYZ TV and Thunder TV, were streaming pornographic content contrary to the broadcasting guidelines.

Earlier, the National Media Commission indicated that it will not take any action against the three television stations

But the NMC in a statement said contents of the three stations did not meet the standards of decency required by the Broadcasting Standards of the Commission.

Chairman of the NMC Kwasi Gyan-Apenteng said “Section 7 (e) of the NMC Broadcasting Guidelines provides that ‘Actual sexual intercourse between humans should at no time be transmitted. The Commission said this provision does not admit of any exceptions.”

The NMC noted that the three TV stations at a meeting, apologised and committed themselves and would ensure that there would be no more pornography on their network.

The Commission has since cautioned broadcasting stations and other electronic communications networks to be particularly mindful of the implications of carrying any content which offends public sensibilities.
