BOLD MOVE BY SABC
Hi tvplus. I’m hearing that SABC plans to cancel Days and Bold. While I agree that local content and talent should be given opportunity, I fail to see how cancelling these two shows will make that much of a difference. A note to DStv, the SABC is creating a gap in the market – perhaps you can give us a soapie channel – ALICE, VIA EMAIL
We asked the SABC for official comment on the possible Days and Bold cancellation but they have indicated that no firm decision has been taken and that the revision of July’s schedule is ongoing, without a particular deadline. While viewer demands factor in, they are part of a far larger set of factors that the SABC is considering in its decision to change the proportion of local content. There are growing viewership figures for local content combined with a decline in viewership for international content, financial realities about the cost of international programming and many more. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates the minute we get them from SABC3.
No one knows if SABC3 will be ditching Brooke and Bold just yet.
