R2K Says TV Control System Bad for Poor

A control system in the boxes required for television watchers to switch from analogue to digital will force the poor to pay for access to information, says R2K

The Right2Know Campaign (R2K) says that a control system in the boxes required for television watchers to switch from analogue to digital will force the poor to pay for access to information.
 
R2K’s Busi Matabane points out that, “There is little doubt in our minds that the control feature will be used in an attempt to squeeze the poor and force them to pay for essential access to information."
 
Mtabane explains that box control makes it possible for those who are unable to pay fees to have their TV signals cut, in much the same way as water and electricity is routinely cut off to poor households that cannot afford to pay.
