Breakthrough in PSL blackout on SABC platforms

Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa and Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams announced in a statement about the resolution that has been found between parties involved.

This follows a meeting to pave the way for sustainable and long-term solutions to the dispute. The meeting was also a culmination of a series of a high-level meetings convened by ministers in their individual joint capacities in the past two weeks.

The public broadcaster has been holding talks with the PSL for the past two weeks. The blackout has seen no PSL matches broadcast on either radio or television on SABC channels since the start of the season in early August.

This was due to a payment disagreement.
