Its cheap enough, so I pay
What is irritating is to receive a call from someone (I assume the SABC) telling me I am in arrears. I quote my ID number and the licence receipt, to be told that belongs to someone else
Been going on for 5 or 6 years now. A phone call about 4 times a year
In 2015 my wife started getting phone calls. Their first question is if you have a TV in the house. Then they say there is no licence on record. She states it is in my name, recites my ID and they are happy. But in 2019 it went one step further and she was asked to download some form, complete it and return it. She refused
They can really waste everyone's time
I missed a payment one year, and then discovered that they charge a 10% penalty fee PER MONTH. That was when I stopped paying. At this stage I it is about 2 years that I haven't paid, and they want me to pay almost R1000 (the biggest percentage of this amount is their ridiculous penalty). As long as they try to extort me with 120% penalties a year, they can go fly a kite
IF you don't watch, how do you know there is nothing that would interest you?Fitst of all, I don't watch any of SABC's channels. There are and never were any programmes that I am interested in! and to watch the News on SABC ... it's just all about the ANC and it's corruption, murder etc. crap.
That's the thing you don't find such TVs. They just need to remove their content there so we don't have to pay. SABC has failed South Africansi was also f@#k this license..then my tv broke recently...and i couldn't buy one with my tv license in arrears...
and we stream and get content from the high seas...do you get tvs without a tuner?
The SABC is an FTA service! It can still be picked up by a pretty basic analogue TV.Those satellite dishes you see in poor communities are for people trying to access live local soccer with money they don't have. Until they give the masses what they want to see (& this includes people from all backgrounds) forget about TV license. Stop selling sport to pay TV bullies and give 24h news free to air , the poor don't have smart TV's and receivers.
