ZBC TV And Radio Licence Fees Set To Be Hiked

ZBC TV And Radio Licence Fees Set To Be Hiked

Television and radio licence fees are set to go up after Cabinet approved a proposal by the Cabinet Committee on National Development Planning to effect the fees adjustment.

Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa on Tuesday told reporters that the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) is now using outdated equipment which needs to be upgraded.

Mutsvangwa said ZBC will soon be launching two more channels and listeners’ licence fees should cover 80% of the broadcaster’s operating costs. She said:

Cabinet received and approved a report of the Cabinet Committee on National Development Planning on the proposed Review of Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation Listeners’ Licence Fees as presented by the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services.

Cabinet noted that the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation’s equipment for both radio and television studios is obsolete and has outlived its lifespan, and therefore requires urgent replacement to enable the broadcaster to improve service delivery.

Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation will soon be launching two more channels towards the fulfilment of its mandate, and for these channels to be effectively rolled out, in addition to the ongoing digitalization of its transmitters, the organisation has to be capacitated.

Listeners’ licence fees should cover 80% of the Corporation’s operational costs.

As long muchine monopoly, muchishandisa mitemo yaIan Smith, yaaishandisa kudzvanyirira vatema hazvishande. One Tv channel, 40 yrs after independence, thus a big joke. Its programmes, "rambai makashinga","Zanu ndeyeropa"," Chitepo school of ideology", and all sort of nonsense, in this 21st century. Technology is now far advanced, gore rino muchatobhadharisa ma licence emafoni becoz ndivo atova matv acho. ZBC is a product that people no longer have appetite to follow its programmes. Ndozvamakavharisira Kwese Tv izvozvo, thus nonsense.

Who watches your shit outdated programmes?A failed station in a failed state with an incompetent government.You don't make money from listeners licence but from adverts.Check out open view

ZBC is a failed project as a channel on its own, how can one introduce another project to fail just like the first project and when it comes to paying for it it's like expecting sunlight at 3am kana muchida kubhadharisa introduce a decoder hameno anotenga though ds is enough
