We advised the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa on an application by South African free-to-air television service, e.tv, to amend its broadcast licence to remove the obligation to broadcast primetime news. This matter involved significant policy considerations for free-to-air broadcasters and e.tv’s application had the potential to significantly change the free-to-air market in South Africa (which is very small and comprises only the state-owned broadcaster, SABC, and e.tv).
