    Jip. I'm a cordcutter (although, I never had a cord, so that's not technically correct.) I've paid for a DSTV mobile subscription at one point to watch some sport, until I moved to an area that didn't have coverage, and now I watch the sport I want to watch by streaming.

    Well, you should. Anything that harms DSTV's monopoly is better for alternatives, like Netflix and the like.

    We're always complaining about how bad Multi(Mono)choice is, so this is a good thing. Provided something comes of it. Which it likely won't because ICASA is useless.

    I don't see anything good coming from this, win or lose.

    This is a money thing, yes competition will be awesome, but our market is so small nobody really cares. What are they going to do? Force Multichoice to dissolve multi billion rand contracts for broadcasting rights?

    ICASA needs to pull their fingers out of their collective assholes and sort out the digital migration issue, the wireless broadband spectrum issue; Hell they have more RF spectrum issues to sort out than I can think names up for.

    Once they have sorted that shit out, then lets worry about monopolies.
