That I want to provide for them
Do you have all the relevant cross border licensing agreements from the producers of the shows? Do you have sufficient (R200m+) liquid capital to provide guarantees to MC?

If you have all of those items in place you should have contacts within the industry to get you in contact with the relevant people... Chances are though thst nobody is interested because the cost benefit to Mc doesn't make sense.

Multichoice owns the rights to Spanish and Indian telenovelas. What exactly are you trying to bring over.What's your budget?

You can get a free to air license from Icasa? Piggybank as a public channel, get a customer base and then approach multichoice or open view for a slot?

Second option has been done by Tshwane TV which started of as a public, free to air channel, then partnered with Multichoice for a slot.Here is how you can setup a free to air channel but your viewers will have to alter decoder settings to access your content and you will be among a lot of crazy Nigerian pastor shows:


Since you have the money, stream your content to secure viewership?

Anyways all the best.
