Awesome.... so they can just make bigger claims of "expected" revenue and miss the boat by an even bigger margin each year.

If only the minority could stand together and stop paying TAXES like they are currently doing with SABC/E-tolls , things might just start changing for the better *tries keeping straight face*

"..we believe that a credible, trusted, and properly-run public broadcaster can create a culture of increased TV licence payment "

I don't mind paying, it encourages local creators when they receive adequate funding. So if the above quote is put into practice all the better.

There is no reason why the SABC can't be a top-notch broadcaster if they get their act together.

The SABC used to be a top notch broadcaster before the CRONIES took over the running.

“There are currently only approximately 1.8 million paying television households and businesses out of a total of 9 million accounts on the SABC database,” Makhathini said.
As long as it's easy to legitimately get off the database, all good.

Did the givernment suddenly improve it's enforcement levels across the board?

We all that they can't even enforce their own bowel movements.

Not paying etolls, traffic fines and tv licenses is easy. Trying to cut off the government's access to income tax would require people to actively do something.

When we go digital, or if we ever go digital, would we still need to pay for a useless TV license?

I'm not sure the law distinguishes between a digital and analogue signal, so if your device can receive such a signal...
