‘TV licence for phones’
Struggling to get viewers to pay their TV licences, the SABC now wants to charge mense for using their computers and cellphones.

James Aguma, SABC CEO, said the broadcaster is expecting lower revenue from TV licences this year, and raised eyebrows in parliament yesterday when he said that the SABC wants the Broadcasting Act changed to include more viewing devices.

The SABC is losing ground to internet and video on demand.

And Aguma believes if the Broadcasting Act is changed, this would only mean better things for the SABC as it would help the struggling broadcaster to increase its income potential.
