Haiti - Telecommunication : Renaissance of Tele Haiti in digital
While some believed, that Tele Haiti, the first cable television station in the country, was only a good memory [after it closed following the extensive damage suffered Jan. 12, 2010], a group of dynamic entrepreneurs, brothers Patrick and Allen Bayard, respectively President and Vice-President of Access Haiti S.A took up the torch, by focusing on New Technologies of Information and Communication (NTIC).

At its closing in 2010, Haiti was offering 21 TV channels [10 French, 10 English and Spanish], with the new project, the number of channels increases dramatically. Tele Haiti now offers up to 138 channels of programming and about 30 music channels for music lovers. "We offer a wide variety of choices similar to what is best in the world by including the most interesting themes and the choices of language," says Patrice Bayard "Where things change is that the new decoders are no longer using the same technology. It is now the wireless digital television (Digital Wireless) with images broadcast in high definition digital [...] With the new decoders, in addition to quality, customers will also have the ability to directly order movies of their choice (pay per view)."

Tele Haiti expects to have its own chain of local programming as before. It is also in talks with professionals to begin the distribution of Press TV. Although Patrice Bayard is not yet able to indicate the composition of the team of Tele Journal, he says that for him it is an obligation to resume the distribution of information both local and international. "The journal's mission will be to inform objectively on the daily national and international without partisan politics"

Patrice Bayard confirmed that the concern of the moment, was the reconquest of their loyal customers [of 2010] of the metropolitan area, stating that currently, the signals of Tele Haiti work in Port-au-Prince, Petionville, and Delmas and the areas accessible from Boutilliers, stressing that a large number of systems have been installed in test since last March. Without excessive talk, Tele Haiti also began recording new customers through the various points of sale of Access Haiti. However, the group plans to expand its services throughout the country through the national network of Access Haiti SA. The leaders hope that by the end of the year, they will be able to cover at least three provincial cities including Cap-Haitien, Gonaives and St. Marc and progressively spread to the rest of the territory.

To receive Tele Haiti, technicians must install an antenna and a decoder at the client who will receive the signals on their TV, that it is digital or not. From 500 gourdes, Tele Haiti proposes 4 basic plans, and the ability to add themed packages.


  • The plan "light", is composed of 26 channels including CNN, History Channel, Gol TV as well as local channels.
  • The plan "Super" has 65 international and local channels.
  • The plan "Ultra" offers 102 channels.
  • The plan "Comple" includes the full range of 138 channels and services available.

Patrice Bayard confides that he worked very hard to put again Tele Haiti up and hope the audience will appreciate the new services to theit fair value.
