MMA and SOS: Support Public Broadcasting Coalition provided a joint submission in response to the call for submissions by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA). National sports and events play a key role in uniting South Africans under a common purpose and goal. National sports enjoy widespread support and generate public interest, and at the same time can also serve to promote inclusivity and diversity. This submission has a particular emphasis on the impact of the Draft Regulations on the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) as the public broadcaster and a free-to-air (FTA) licensee, and the proposed obligations that the Draft Regulations would impose.
