“Our main priority is improving compliance,”

So not maybe improve programming as your content is absolute crap?

I suspect one day you will pay purely to watch ANC propaganda on an hourly repeat 24/7.

The SABC is already being funded out of the tax pool by bailouts, just scrap the TV licence nonsense altogether. They're trying to pretend that their financial woes are the fault of those not paying instead of those that are milking it dry.

They already have a very strict legislative framework, unlike most debts, SABC license fees never prescribe.
So what exactly is it that they want to do to make it stricter?

They're desperate, and if they don't ask there's no chance... but there's no chance anyway.

It has also suggested expanding the definition of hardware products for which a TV Licence is required to include smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
hmm.. why don't they just add a VAT type of tax to everything.... for tv license.

Idiots...

It never prescribes...but it also is not enforced by law either.

No one has EVER been blacklisted OR prosecuted for outstanding license fees.

How about they go after their audiences who am pretty sure aren't paying.

Again another fear-mongering article, please tell the SABC from me to them (kiss my ***)

I for one welcome stricter laws. Once I proved I don't have a TV spectrum receiver they should abide by their own laws or go to jail for something like 10 years I believe would be fair?
