Intense regulation of streaming services poses threat to local South African industry

The African National Congress (ANC) is calling for the regulation of streaming services in South Africa, although there’s not much certainty on what this will entail just yet.

The comments were made by the Minister of Communication and Digital Technologies Khumbudzo Ntshavheni at the ANC’s Nationa Policy Conference in Johannesburg at the weekend.
