ice tv logoGhana's TV censor, the National Media Commission (NMC) has ordered three of the country's public TV channels to immediately stop broadcasting pornography, saying actual sexual intercourse between humans should at no time be transmitted with no exceptions. After complaints, the NMC said the channels' broadcasts didn't meet the NMC's broadcasting standards.

The TV channels, XYZ TV, Thunder TV and Ice TV told the regulator they're broadcasting pornography because some other TV channels that they compete with are also doing it.

One of the channels, Ice TV, that said it will abide by the directive, has reportedly now threatened the NMC with court action over the decision, saying they want Ghana's courts to give clarification on whether the regulator has the right to stop it from airing pornography on Ghana's free-to-air TV airwaves.
