ZBC Charging US$13k Nominal Fee For “Uninterrupted Live Feed” Of Poll Challenge
The national broadcaster ZBC is charging a nominal fee of US$13,000 to private and international broadcasters wishing to get the live feed of Constitutional court proceedings of the MDC Alliance poll challenge.
The national broadcaster, which was granted the sole right to broadcast the MDC Alliance poll challenge at the apex court is charging US$13,073 for those wishing to pick up an uninterrupted live feed from the beginning to the end of the election petition.
The charges have been pegged in strictly foreign currency.
Broadcasters who choose to go by the second option of uninterrupted hourly rates will fork out US$1,815 per hour.
For radio, the state broadcaster is charging US$5,217 per day for those who wish to get uninterrupted live feed from start to finish while uninterrupted hourly rates for radio will come at a cost of US$725 per hour.
Media rights lobby, Media Institute of Southern Africa Zimbabwe last week filed an urgent ConCourt chamber application requesting the court to allow the event to be broadcast live on social media which has a wider and extra-terrestrial character as opposed to ZBC.
“Misa Zimbabwe firmly believes that granting broadcasting rights solely to ZBC goes against the spirit of a pluralised media environment envisaged in Zimbabwe’s constitution,” said the group in a statement.
