You're reading it here first.
I wrote last week RIGHT HERE about On Digital Media's court interdict against Super5Media and now I can be first to tell you that the case will be heard in court for the first time on Tuesday, 2 February in the South Gauteng High Court.
On Digital Media (ODM) as a pay TV operator planning a May launch in South Africa, has sought an urgent interdict against Super5Media. ODM believes Super5Media has circumvented the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) in terms of the shareholder's composition and original licence requirements when Telkom Media (now Super5Media) was sold to Shenzhen and didn't go through/past Icasa approval first.
''Super5Media asked for a one week postponement, which ODM reluctantly acceded to,'' Dimitri Martinis, ODM's head of regulatory affairs told me earlier today.
