Telkom wants in on Multichoice’s Business

From an article on ITWeb

Telkom is investing R7 billion in setting up a subscription TV service aimed at the mass market, as well as several multi-platform technologies such as IPTV and video on-demand

Telkom Media says its planned subscription TV bouquet will bring pay-TV “within the realistic price range of nearly 40% of South African audiences”.

The television offerings will include a 24-hour news station, headed up by Jimi Matthews (formerly of etv and the SABC), as well as channels devoted to sports, movies, music, education and home shopping.
