:: Telecoms : SABC wants to wean itself off revenue from adverts :: MyADSL: Technology and Broadband News
The plan is to allocate more time to actual news bulletins and less to advertising. For example, said Mpofu, television news bulletins, which were allocated 30 minutes, only had 16 minutes of news, with the rest of the time taken up by commercials.
Now that would be a really good idea, as long as they don’t increase the license fees.
One thing I do not get is that you need a license even if you do not actually watch public broadcast Television, wtf is with that
On a similar subject I heard a rumour that they are looking into changing the type of device that requires a license to include devices like Cellphones that can receive video broadcasts, would this include LCD “TV’s ” that do not have tuners???? Would piss me off as I want to get a HD LCD that doesn’t have a tuner to hook up to my system.
