    This was very eye-opening. I am a student in America, and knew very little about South African media and its interactions with the government and independent “monopolies.” I am interested in finding out if these trends and interactions are similar to those that occur in US media; I assume they are a lot more monopolized here.

    Please keep writing, this was very informative!

    The community TV stations suffer as well from advertisers not willing to spend their budgets. Cape Town TV is the only community TV station in the Western Cape and I watch this station often, but there is no advertising support from advertising agencies as they are probably not willing to break the norm and take the risks. Not cool agencies! I understand that Cape Town TV is an NGO, so surely advertising agencies could get a rebate from supporting NGOs.
