ICASA will launch an inquiry into must-carry regulations

ICASA released a press statement announcing its intent to launch an inquiry into must-carry regulations to determine whether they need to be amended.

According to ICASA, a point of contention within these regulations is the point that "a Subscription Broadcasting Service licensee (SBS) is required to carry the television programmes of a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Licensee at no cost to the SBS Licensee."

Well, an alternative is them acting as an agent for TV license collections.

In other words, SABC wants DSTV to pay money to carry the no cost channels.
