ICASA moves to enquire PayTV market

Posted by radio On August - 29 - 2017

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has published a Discussion Document in Government Gazette NO 41070 to solicit written representations in respect of an inquiry into Subscription Television Broadcasting Services.

 

The document sets out the Authority’s preliminary  consideration of subscription television broadcasting services in South Africa, and seeks stakeholders’ inputs including in respect of the definition of markets and market segments, the effectiveness of competition in the relevant markets, a determination of licensees with significant market power, and possible appropriate pro-competitive licence conditions that may be imposed.

 

The document follows General Notices published by the Authority in July and September 2016, respectively, giving notice of its intention to conduct an inquiry into the Subscription Television Broadcasting Services.

 

Following public consultation processes, including public hearings and a draft findings document, the Authority will publish a Findings Document, which may result in the Authority developing regulations.

 

Interested stakeholders have until 31 October 2017 to make their written submissions to be considered by ICASA in developing the draft findings report.
