SENTECH began as a technical division of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (“SABC”) responsible for signal distribution services of the Corporation. In 1992, the SABC corporatised the division as SENTECH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Corporation.
In 1996, the SENTECH Act 63 of 1996 was amended, converting SENTECH into a separate public company responsible for providing broadcasting signal distribution services as a ‘common carrier’ to licensed television and radio broadcasters.
