The South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) 19 radio services are now available on DSTV’s audio package from today. Previously METRO FM was the only public service broadcaster’s radio station on this platform.
Mr Leslie Ntloko, SABC Group Executive: Radio stated: “SABC Radio has over the years claimed its rightful space by dominating the airwaves and it is now the right time to further expand on our offering, by using alternative platforms. This partnership will ensure that our various radio stations’ spectrum is not confined to certain areas. Through the DStv bouquet our radio stations will have a wider national footprint.”
MetroFM will no longer be available on channel 881 and has since moved to channel 901.
