@JeanP , thanks for the link to the Thinus article which tells a VERY different story from the one that MC are spinning...MC, people just can't trust what you choose to say anymore so please reconsider how you approach your public.
As for local content - no, it will not do as a replacement for those used to international content. There are some good productions, but most don't come close.
And it seems Showmax is climbing on the same cheap bandwagon (presumed reasoning) - see the latest series and movies on offer, most look like Nollywood stuff from Nigeria or similar. Hardly likely to be popular, even the majority population doesn't seem to think much of that country.
You need to spend money to make money MC, even when times are tough. Thanks for hearing us.
Interesting! Wonder what the new channel will be offering the "blue chip documentaries, history and factual reality shows". Let's face it, History did NOT live up to it's name!
