Botswana’s National Broadcasting Board yesterday awarded a Satellite Subscription Television Service Licence to Munhumutape African Broadcasting Corporation (MABCTV). The licence will enable MABTV to establish studios to broadcast from Botswana and have satellite uplink facilities from Gaborone.
The service will specialise in tourism-related content while acquiring rights and aggregating other channels from other parts of the world linking up from Botswana.
MABTV will broadcast from Gaborone to the rest of the country with a view to eventually covering other parts of Africa - starting in Southern Africa in the second year of their operation. It expects to commission its channels to other parts of the globe in due course.
