Crime Watch in jeopardy …”TATT CLOSES SYNERGY TV”

Spread the word
The Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) has issued instructions to Television and Cable Providers to remove Synergy TV from its line up, effective midnight on Tuesday.
Synergy TV learnt of the instructions around 5 pm on Tuesday and was unable to respond to the move.

Executives of the television stations have been consulting with their lawyers and they are expected to issue a statement on Wednesday.

No reasons were given by TATT for the latest development, but the closure would send employees packing and on the breadline.

This is the second local station that had been closed by TATT within the past few years. The first was WIN TV which was shut down on the June 16, 2016, over an issue regarding nonpayment of fees.

Several employees lost their jobs while others were absorbed into other media houses.

Synergy TV was launched in March 2003, by entertainer Peter C Lewis, a real time supporter of the People’s National Movement (PNM).

This station was an avenue for many local entertainers and designers to showcase their work. Its main attraction in recent times was Crime Watch with host Ian Alleyne.

Alleyne is now wondering if a blight has taken him as he had lost having his show on both TV6 and CNC3. Where would Crime Watch be aired next?

Synergy TV has also hosted Synergy Soca Star, Synergy Nights LIVE, Roll Call, Dynasty Chutney, Concert Series, I Love My Ride, Pete’s Picks, Friday Nights Live, Soca Acts, Synergy Sports, Synergy TV Supermodel, Entertainment News, Karry Yuh Key, Chutney Island, Wrap Up, Synergy Sundays, Synergy Chutney Star and Yuh Done Kno.
