This project is due for completion by December 15, 2022, including the completion of the first phase that covers the establishment and advancement of IT infrastructure, ERP system and sub-control room by 2021.

The establishment of a next-generation broadcasting system will be based on an uninterrupted broadcasting system by considering the continuity of program production and transmission.
