Why having too many Tv stations that can only be operating in BT and Lz? And after all Malawians are ready to run Tv stations even MBC aint there yet

Too many tv stations already and they are all boring with the exception of Times TV and a bit of zodiak. The rest are just a waste of air space. They are not creative in making their programz schedule.
