I presume the R553-million cost includes the pay-offs to all an sundry involved? e.g. ICASA, SA Goverment, etc. Or perhaps the 'bonuses' will be on top of that amount

Happi;y not a cent of the R553-million paid by Multichoice comes out of my pocket!

If etv can pay R300million/yr for one channel from its own pocket, then SABC should be able to pay R100million/yr for two channels.

This is really good for SABC.

I actually hope this channel succeeds just so that a flame can be ignited under eNCA's bums. Their quality is really starting to suck. The channel is just a rotation of 30 minute bulletins, nothing interesting. They might as well just record the 7pm news and loop it.

Hopefully this channel will have more live coverage

Don't need, don't want.

Since its a government project its likely going to be 200% over budget and years late.

Lets rather by chinese fortune cookies for everyone instead.
