Multi Technology Vision Inc. (MTV Channel 14/65) is investigating the circumstances surrounding the collapse of its broadcast tower and studio facility in Eccles, East Bank Demerara at about 12:05hrs this morning.
The company said “sabotage is not ruled out” as a nipper was found hanging from the wire attached to the tower.
However, it was disclosed that there were no security guards on the property at the time of the incident.
In a statement, MTV said its channel will be off air until further notice, even as its team is working assiduously to restore all operations.
“Regrettably, our broadcast tower at our studio facility in Eccles has collapsed, causing severe damage to our broadcast equipment and building,” the statement noted.
The company is asking its advertisers, producers and viewers to remain steadfast, as it seeks to address the issue. Advertisers and Producers are also asked to make contact with MTV’s Accounts and Marketing Departments, or visit its office from Monday, September 4, 2017, during working hours to address their accounts.
