How to save the SABC

Gov­ern­ment must res­cue the SABC from this sit­u­a­tion, and a proper board must be ap­pointed and the cur­rent man­age­ment reshuf­fled.

Andrew Nel Gaut­eng

The SABC has al­lowed it­self to be­come en­meshed in triv­ial pol­i­tics rather than cater­ing to the needs of those who watch tele­vi­sion and lis­ten to the ra­dio.

South Africans are crazy about sport, but all that we have ac­cess to on SABC is a few medi­ocre soc­cer games. One is forced to pay ex­or­bi­tant fees to watch our peo­ple play­ing lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, even in the pop­u­lar sports.

Find a way to stop DStv’s monopoly on sporting events and you’ll lure your view­ers back! I don’t own a TV any more – SABC is putrid and DStv costs too much.

Joe Hen­ning Gaut­eng

In my opin­ion, 90% of lo­cal con­tent shown on SABC3 is rub­bish and an in­sult to the view­ers, which is why no one watches. Get de­cent shows from over­seas and then ad­ver­tis­ers and view­ers will re­turn. If not, the SABC should cease to op­er­ate.

Renette Gaut­eng

The SABC must be put into busi­ness res­cue. Ob­jec­tive pro­fes­sion­als must draw up a plan on how to save it. Fur­ther politi­cis­ing will not help.
