NAB inputs into the 2014-2019 ICASA strategy
The NAB welcomes the opportunity to make its presentation to the Authority, and prior engagements the ICASA CEO had with the NAB executive committee. We hope our inputs will add value and help shape the Authority’s 5 year strategy. Three television broadcasters are directly affected by digital migration: SABC, etv and M-Net. Analogue Terrestrial Television currently provides TV services to over 41 million South Africans. Terrestrial TV is a mass medium, and of these 41 million South African television viewers, terrestrial FTA television is the sole source of education, information and entertainment for over 26 million South Africans. An approach to spectrum allocation as a result of digital migration and the digital dividend must take into account the importance of Terrestrial Television in SA. The spectrum is directly linked to the future viability of Terrestrial Television and serving the needs of citizens.
￼NAB presentation to the DOC follow-up workshop on radio frequency spectrum policy
On 18 September 2009 the DOC published a draft Spectrum Policy for public comment. The NAB participated in this public consultative process, which led to the department publishing a final Spectrum Policy on 16 April 2010. The NAB notes that the DOC has called this workshop to consider a review of the 2010 Spectrum Policy. It is apparent that the DoC has been engaging with a range of stakeholders, however the NAB has not had the opportunity to meet the DOC on the proposed Spectrum Policy review process until today. The NAB therefore appreciates this workshop, and would require additional time to consult its membership on key matters that affect broadcasters.
