[LISTEN] New SABC and PSL deal suddenly makes commercial sense now?

The SABC initially announced that it was not going to broadcast any football games because it could not reach an agreement with the league.

This meant that thousands of soccer fans were going to miss out on their favourite sport as the games were only going to be broadcast on DStv.

But after the first match, the ministers of Sport and Communication, as well as the PSL and the SABC, announced on Monday night that a way forward had been found.

You could be forgiven for asking, does an SABC in trouble serve any interests?
