So why are you paying?This bull dust will drive me to criminality as I am a legally compliant viewer despite the fact that I do not watch DSTV, SABC, ETV or any local TV broadcasts. This crap will just justify my thinking of no longer paying for a TV license!
I pay because it is the right thing to do, however, the current government are driving more and more people to becoming criminals by not following the "right thing to do" principal. Why then do we pay/follow for the following:So why are you paying?
Same with me, I do not use any form of broadcasting media. Mostly because there is absolutely fsckall to watch on TV...it's all crap. Why should I pay for crap? No thanks
IFF coupled with follow up and prosecution.According to the SABC 76% of households currently do not pay their TV license. Will new proposals, such as requiring licences for laptops, tablets, and decoders, actually work?

How about they fix that, and then maybe people would want to support them.This should not come as a surprise. Incompetence, maladministration, and corruption at the SABC mean many people refuse to fund the state broadcaster.
They should follow ETV's example and push on advertising by providing shows people want to see. ETV develops local shows and they show international shows. A lot of it soapy crap but that is what people like. They know their market.So dire is the situation that the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) has called for the scrapping of TV licences, arguing this funding model for the SABC has failed.
How would they enforce the new law? Would it be when you buy a tablet, laptop,etc that you have to produce a licence?
