‘Our television is Cuba, history, people, Revolution. Congratulations to all its makers and thanks for their commitment, effort and creativity,’ he twitted.
Union Radio TV (Channel 4) was officially inaugurated on October 24, 1950, and it started broadcasting uninterruptedly for more than eight hours a day in Havana.
A year later, CMQ Television’s Channel 6 was inaugurated to broadcast regularly, so Cuba, along with Brazil and Mexico, is a pioneer of television in Latin America and the Caribbean.
After the triumph of the Revolution on January 1, 1959, Cuban television acquired a public and educational nature under the guidance of the Cuban Radio and Television Institute.
Several Cuban communication and news media, including Prensa Latina, have sent congratulatory messages on this anniversary.
