Just because they say it, it doesn't mean people will pay. They need to fix their value proposition and their image before anything else will work.

Or just impose the death penalty for not paying your tv licence, that might work.

Er, why? Nothing is broadcast. It's streamed. Better yet, get Nu Metro and Ster Kinekor to also be considered for this considering they show movies.
Idiots...doesn't take many of them to make something a complete farce.

So if you subscribe to Netflix, Showmax, DSTV, you will be charged thrice for a TV license that, lisences you to watch content that you zero interest in, and don't watch at all. Awesome idea, for a stealth tax. Idiots.

Exactly this. I do not see why we need to pay for something that is not of any interest to us and provides zero services to us. Their programs are crap, they are biased and corruption is rife.

No thank you!

Soon...

"The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has proposed that regulation be implemented to expand the definition of a TV licence to include breathing, eating, sleeping, making a poo, giving birth, smiling, driving t work, fornicating and in general, just for being alive."
