Monday 26 October 2020 | 10:14 CET | News
The South Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) is finalising plans to bring out its own streaming platform and services in the early part of 2021. Spokesperson Mmoni Seapolelo told Channel24 that it is planning to launch a video and audio streaming service in line with changing industry trends and consumer needs. At this stage, Seapolelo said, the SABC is not in a position to provide more detail, due to the commercial sensitivity of the information.
