SABC broadcast transmitter LimpopoFor the first time the Mhinga community of the Limpopo province, South Africa will have access to South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) full range of programming, following the instalment of a new low power transmitter

The new mast will be unveiled on 18 August 2012 and will broadcast SABC’s television and radio services, including three SABC television channels and Munghana Lonene FM.

The installation of the transmitter follows an agreement between SABC, the Department of Communications and the national signal distributor Sentech.

SABC said in a statement, “Universal Access refers to the right for all South Africans to access free-to-air SABC services.

“There are still an estimated three million South Africans who do not have free-to-air access to any SABC television and radio services.”

The broadcasting firm also announced that it intends to install 300 additional low-power transmitters across South Africa over the next three years in order to boost the company’s coverage.

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago explained, “In line with its mandate of providing universal access, the SABC will continue to roll out similar transmitters where there is no accessibility to broadcasting services throughout the country.”
