NTI provides $2.4M to help launch Inuit TV – Nunatsiaq News

14 July 2020

Inuit created broadcaster will air programming in Inuktut across the circumpolar North

Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. will spend $2.4 million over three years to support plans to create an Inuktut television channel.

This commitment—recently announced on July 9, Nunavut Day—will support the longstanding efforts of Nunavut broadcasters to create such a channel, which was previously billed as TV Nunavut, and is now being called Inuit TV.

The aim is to create and broadcast Inuit-created educational television programming in Inuktut dialects across the circumpolar North.

“We’ve been looking forward to this for a little while now,” said Joey Evalik, the vice-president of Inuit TV. “I’ve been with Inuit TV for about 12 years now, as a volunteer board member.” Source: Geeba.io – Cryptocurrency News and Bitcoin Casinos
