Hopefully this time around the capable bidders will be awarded as ICASA  starts with the public hearings process to bring about the much needed competition within the commercial subscription broadcasting licences.


The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa hereby gives notice of the public hearings to be held in respect of the applications received for Individual Commercial Subscription Broadcasting Service licences.


This process follows the invitation to apply issued by the Authority in 2012 whereby the Authority received applications and dealt with related procedural matters relating to the applications including the requests for confidentiality in terms of the relevant legislation; and later published in the government gazettes for interested parties to make written representations and for applicants to provide responses thereof.


The Authority has received five (5) applications in respect of this process from Kagiso TV (Pty) Ltd, Siyaya Free to Air (Pty) Ltd, Mindset Media Enterprises (Pty) Ltd, Close-T Broadcast Network Holdings (Pty) Ltd and Mobile TV (Pty) Ltd. The hearings will be held as follows:


Venue : Block C Presentation Room (ICASA Head Office) 164 Katherine Street Pinmill Farm Sandton Date : 24 to 26 July 2013 Time : 09h00
