South Africans will have to wait a while longer for the country’s first mobile television. The deadline for applications for the first four licences was 7 May.
The licence was supposed to be awarded in time for the World Cup, but instead of sorting the applications, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has been reported to the Public Protector by one of the applicants for procedural impropriety.
Mobile TV Consortium (Mobile TV) claim that it has resorted to the legal route after allegations surfaced that ICAASA had allowed MultiChoice to submit its application after the deadline.
