African broadcast giant MultiChoice says that attempts by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa to level the playing fields among local broadcasters will have unintended consequences.The Daily Maverick reports that the regulatory authority believes most South Africans should have access to sports broadcasts. However, due to MultiChoice’s deep pockets and exclusive broadcast rights, the free-to-air broadcasters — which cater to the majority of South Africans — are left with the crumbs, citing the 2019 Rugby World Cup as a prime example. MultiChoice however said it was not the enemy of local broadcasters and that international streaming sites were what Icasa should be looking at regulating in an increasingly crowded audio-visual market.
