They aren't telling us the whole truth. It won't be used punitively, but it will pave the way for pay TV from the state broadcaster. I see no other use for Conditional Access.SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said that the state broadcaster had made submissions to the Independent Communications Authority about the decoders , but denied that it intended using the decoder as a punitive tool.
Indeed, they rely on their own revenue streams, no .gov to bail them out.“We will never switch off anyone. That is not our intention. We don’t operate like private broadcasters.”
You wouldn't need a decoder if it was built into your tv already like the rest of the world, but us dummies still buy these cr@p old square analog tv's./me groans at the thought of another decoder.
Damn....I wish they would then I won't be forced to pay for a licence I don't use as SABC has cr@p tv on it.The television decoders that the government proposes introducing — which viewers will have to buy to view free channels — will not be used by the SABC as a means of cutting off people who have not paid their TV licence fees
