To this end, the Department of Communications (the DoC) says it is leading a renewed project plan enables collaboration with all stakeholders to drive the delivery on universal digital television in South Africa.

Providing a status update report to her country's parliament, Ms Kubayi-Ngubane also indicated that her department was soon going to announce deadline dates for households to register for government-subsidised set-top boxes.

The Minister has particularly appealed to the country's Finance and National Treasury to find creative ways to support her drive to ensure the achievement of the stated goals.
