Broadcast licensing process still on track

May 30th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) recently announced that it is currently finalising the analysis of applications, representations and responses in respect of the licensing of new individual commercial broadcasting (primary and secondary markets) and subscription broadcasting services licensing processes. The Authority plans to conduct public hearings and decide on the applications in the second quarter of the current financial year i.e. July to September 2013. On 2 February 2012, the Authority published the invitations to apply (ITA) for primary markets on medium wave frequencies (Gauteng, Cape Town and Durban), secondary markets (Eastern Cape, Free State and Northern Cape) as well as subscription broadcasting services. Subsequently, the Authority received requests for extensions of the closing date of the ITA for secondary markets, which was granted.
