South Africa's most loved and watched television station, the SABC is clearly adhering to its mandate of trimming the unnecessary fat from its food chain. Recently it was announced that two of the most popular television shows, Uzalo and Skeem Saam will no longer have its episodes published by the station on YouTube but both programmes will continue being broadcast on television.

The SABC has signed a new licence agreement with another live streaming service called Viu, which is operated by PCCW Media and Vuclip. The episodes of Uzalo and Skeem Saam will continue being published until the 28th February 2019 on YouTube, as Viu will now thereafter own exclusive rights to some of the shows from the SABC.


American soapie, The Bold and the Beautiful is recently one of the shows that the SABC has decided to pull off air.
This news was not entirely welcomed by the audience because some had become somehow attached to its riveting and daring storylines.

Loyal viewers of both Uzalo and Skeem Saam need not fret, as they can still get programme playback that is available for free access. Viu is available for free in App or via website, www.viu.com, which is actually just as convenient as accessing YouTube.
