FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Cable Bahamas makes application to restructure its pay television packages

Today, the Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (‘URCA’) published the ‘Consultation document for Cable Bahamas Limited’s Application for the Repackaging of REVTV Offers’ (ECS 04/2021) on its website.

URCA received applications from Cable Bahamas Limited (‘CBL’) requesting URCA’s approval to restructure its REVTV offers for residential and business pay television subscribers. The application for residential REVTV offers was submitted on 27 October 2020 followed by the application for business REVTV offers on 20 January 2021.

CBL’s repackaging entails a net reduction in the number of channels for REVTV PRIME (residential and business), the movement of several channels between existing packages, and the creation of several ‘add-on’ packages targeted towards specific audiences. The proposed changes will only apply to consumers in areas where CBL has a two-way digital cable TV network: New Providence, Grand Bahama, Abaco, and parts of Eleuthera.

CBL’s reasons for wanting to implement these changes are to: reduce the content costs of REVTV plans, align its existing packages with customer viewing habits, and to create add-on packages with tailored options for customers.

URCA now seeks feedback from persons impacted by CBL’s proposed changes. Persons must send their written responses or comments to URCA’s Chief Executive Officer by 5:00 p.m. on or before 19 April 2021 either:

  • by hand, to URCA’s office at Frederick House, Frederick Street, Nassau; or
  • by mail to P.O. Box N‐4860, Nassau, Bahamas; or
  • by fax, to (242) 393‐0153; or
  • by email, to

URCA will issue a Statement of Results after careful consideration of all of the feedback received.

The complete consultation document, copies of CBL’s application documents (commercially sensitive information was removed before publishing), and an Excel spreadsheet containing the complete channel listings of the existing and proposed packages can be found here.
