South Africa will switch to digital TV by 2021

The Department of Communications has outlined its plan to implement its broadcasting digital migration (BDM) programme in South Africa.

In a presentation to the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee, the department said it would begin distributing digital set-top boxes and fast-track the digital migration near the end of 2020.
The department also said that it needs to clear the decoder stock currently kept in the SA Post Office warehouse

Oooh I wonder how they are going to do that,Stay tuned for the next episode of Dragon Ball Z.
Any news on what is going to happen to TV licenses? Will it now be tied to the set top box instead of a TV? Will normal TV's be able to receive the signal? I remember SA chose to use a standard nobody else is using, cannot remember all the details.
And the TV License group will still want their annual fee. yea Sod off
Think someone's sausage fingers hit the wrong number...pretty sure it's meant to be 2051
