Icasa will be considering new rules for Multichoice to ban the DStv TV-pay monopoly.



The Icasa broadcast regulator says that it is considering new barriers for Multichoice, DStv's owner, to try to control the market.

Icasa published the draft findings of its survey of subscription television services in South Africa.

The regulator could destroy the number of Hollywood films that MultiChoice are allowed to buy their rights, explaining Phillip de Wet from Business Insider.

Icasa also wants to change the rules of MutliChoice broadcasting rights for major sporting events.

According to De Wet, Icasa has found that staff flowing like Netflix and ShowMax are not giving the pay TV sector a real risk.

Icasa says that the impact of this online service is serious because of the availability of broadband and internet services, the cost of data and low internet speeds.

There have been two attempts to break the monopoly of DStv into the television market in South Africa.
