We've had a major victory to ensure no one is cut off from SABC and other free TV. But our campaign isn't over, we're calling on Communications Minister Faith Muthambi to ensure no one is left behind and provide Set-Top-Boxes to 6 million households. As South Africa switches off analogue TV and turns on digital, all of us will need a set-top box (similar to a decoder). The problem is government is considering making us pay the R700 for the set-top box. The majority of South Africans can’t afford this, and while the Ministers subsidy covers 5 million low-income households, as many as 1 million homes could still be cut off from watching the news, local content in our languages and education shows for children.
Add your voice and ensure access for all. If we don’t act now, we could face a future where access to TV is divided based on your pocket. Access to education and health services are already divided. The media plays an important role in our democracy, we can't let access to TV become an expensive private service for an elite minority who can afford it, while the majority will have to make do with a poor quality public service, and those most marginalised will be cut off from receiving television completely.
Together, we can ensure our government follows other countries who have moved to digital and provided set-top boxes for free . For more information visit our allies, Save Our SABC Coalition to learn more.
