    Well it makes sense to scrap it since with the DTT switchover, you won't be able to watch TV unless the SABC knows about you and your equipment, and de-scrambles the signal for your set-top box.

    Or you could use DSTv without the fscking useless SABC channels.

    But I decided to scrap TV License fees 10 years ago.

    Hilarious!
    Now, when you get that letter/sms/phone call of demand, you can say: You're going to be out of a job soon.

    This will save millions in admin and processing.

    They should get the money from VAT, since just about everyone watches TV at some point or owns a TV. There is no reason to keep track of individuals.

    Now no tv license required for a large lcd screen for pc use ... stupid that they made the vendors do so in the first place when it had no tuner to begin with ...

    Dear staff writer, this paragraph makes no sense to me:

    Bad news for people without TV licenses is that existing TV licenses will remain valid, and therefore payable, until the end of the financial year when the new broadcasting act comes into force. Money owed to the SABC in terms of TV licenses will also remain valid until fully paid up.
    I don't have a TV license, and never had one. So how is this bad news for me?

    Huh? If I don't have a TV license, then it isn't payable, or am I missing something?
