M-Net set to roll on

World Brief

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa has renewed the license of the country’s only terrestrial pay TV channel, M-Net, until 2010.

M-Net runs a daily two-hour open-time window in which nonsubscribers can view the channel’s programming. During the renewal hearings, free-to-air broadcaster e.tv complained that this gave M-Net access to audiences and revenue that should be available only to free-to-air broadcasters.

ICASA was satisfied that M-Net, as a subscription-based broadcaster, did not use advertising as its primary source of income.
