Dishes to go

The Antwerp housing company Onze Woning (our house) has applied for a permit to put up central dishes on the roof of one their buildings, in preparation of doing the same in their other housing complexes.

According to the manager, the current antennas are not aesthetic or safe.

Onze Woning has 4,800 housing units, 80% of which are rented by immigrants. The residents will be connected up to the central antenna.

The company sees this as a chance to promote Dutch, enabling access to Dutch TV broadcasters.

Onze Woning has also decided to see the renters as collectively responsible for pollution. If anything is found in the stairwell and the owner can't be traced, all families will pay 5 euro ''cleaning up fee".
