You're reading it here first.
The SABC just officially announced in parliament what I already told you on 3 March regarding the public broadcaster's plans for the upcoming FIFA Soccer World Cup RIGHT HERE.
The South African public broadcaster will have 250 hours of television coverage of the Soccer World Cup when it kicks off in June. The SABC will broadcast all 64 Soccer World Cup games live across all three of the SABC's TV channels, with the bulk on SABC1, some on SABC2 and SABC3 showing repeats that viewers will be able to vote for.
The SABC says the broadcaster has five newly acquired, high definition (HD) ready, state-of-the-art outside broadcast (OB) vans that will all be employed and used during the Soccer World Cup.
