Election results on www.nation.sc
Live coverage on www.sbc.sc

With the long weekend of public holidays Seychelles Nation will not be appearing Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Monday 9th December, but our readers will be able to read the National Assembly election results electronically on www.nation.sc

www.nation.sc is Seychelles Nation's web site which provides a free service and is updated daily with news appearing in the newspaper.

The results of the National Assembly election, which started Wednesday and ends Friday, will be published at www.nation.sc on Saturday morning.

The results will be published in both English and French.

More detailed analysis of the election results will be published in our next issue, both electronically and in print, on Tuesday December 10.

Meanwhile, the Seychelles Broadcasting Corporation (SBC) has announced that  Seychellois living overseas, as well as other interested persons, can view the election results live, through subscription, on its new site, www.sbc.sc launched recently.

According to the corporation, www.sbc.sc allows live connection to AM radio and SBC TV’s 8 p.m. newscasts.  The election results, news and other programmes will be archived on the site and will be available for visitors who miss the live versions and when SBC TV and SBC AM radio are off the air. 

The live and archived programming is a subscription-only service costing US$35 for 300 megabytes (300 MB) of download per month for six months.  This corresponds to two hours of radio or forty (40) minutes of TV per day.

According to SBC’s managing director, Mr Ibrahim Afif: “Subscription is required not only to help us cover the cost of having the web site hosted by an overseas server but also to ensure a quality service.”

He said: “The multi-media services require what our engineers call 'dedicated bandwidth for every viewer or listener' and the costs to the SBC are based on the monthly volume of traffic – that is, the more visitors to the site, the more we are charged.  By subscribing, visitors will make it possible for us to continue providing an effective, informative service”.

Mr Afif added that visitors also had to subscribe for copyright reasons – this way the SBC will know who is listening or viewing and can therefore enter into agreements with musicians and programme suppliers.

Subscription details, including the agreement form to be completed, are available on the site.

www.sbc.sc also carries the SBC logo and colours and a complete listing of all the SBC’s TV and radio (AM and FM) programmes.
