The Right 2 Know campaign said
the migration from analogue to digital has the potential to transform ownership
patterns and determine the communication landscape.
Minister of Communications
Faith Muthambi announced last week that the final broadcast digital migration

However R2K has also
reiterated its call for free set-top-boxes for all.
R2K’s Micah Reddy said we have
that the government has no quarrels about cutting of people’s basic rights to water
"We have no reason to take them
for their word when they say they won’t cut off the houses from doing public
television. Which we believe is something that the constitution is enshrined and
we believe that the public broadcaster is a public good, and every South African has the right to receive an important information." Muthambi added.
