Icasa plans to open pay-TV market

PAY-TV

DStv may have competition in the pay-TV market and Icasa Councillor Botlenyana Mokhele explains the process.

Late in 2017, Icasa published a discussion document about its inquiry into subscription television broadcasting services.

It stated that the inquiry aimed "to determine whether there are competition issues in the sector, which require action to be taken by the authority through the imposition of pro-competitive conditions on relevant licensees".

MultiChoice currently dominates the domestic market and has the lion's share of international sporting events through supersport.

Speaking to John Maythan, Icasa Councillor Botlenyana Mokhele, said they recently published a notice for public hearings to take place between the 7 and 11 May 7.

Basically what had happened is, we published a discussion document last year, we received about 18 submissions which are in the process of finalising the analysis thereof. Of the 18 submissions all of them indicated that they wanted to make an oral presentations of their submissions and we just confirmed that the hearings will take place.
