2013 called, it wants it's outdated tv license model back. Seriously SA doesn't need to follow every failed trend and policy in the world.You guys know Germany has this model in place right?
Since 2013 all citizens have to pay. Regardless if they have a device or not to watch tv or listen to the radio. Currently their fee is 18 euros per house per month.
I can see where the SABC are coming from. The current model is outdated and doesn’t work. Germany ditched that model in 2013 for the same reasons.
How is it fair to exclude the majority? The only reason there is to not upset the voter base. Btw income status is no longer considered a valid reason for exemption so what now if we follow the German model?There are exemptions to the tax; same a Germany has exemptions. So if the people in shacks are excluded; then I think that is fair. They're below the poverty line and shouldn't be made to pay this.
Same as if you're unemployed in Germany; you don't pay.
