Gay TV Network Coming To Mzansi

Word is; Close-TV Broadcast Network Holdings want to bring South Africans gay TV content, including a pay-per-view on demand service and wants to become South Africa's first pay-TV operator servicing the viewing needs of the LGBT community

CloseTV calls its intended market the "thriving lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and asexual community". 

However, that will only happen if the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) grants Close-T Broadcast Network Holdings a pay-TV licence to start a subscription service in the country.

CloseTV says it has already set up exclusive partnerships with global gay content providers such as the OutTV group and Logo TV (home of gay popular show in South Africa such as RuPaul's Drag Race and Noah's Arc). 

The network service will also show films from the OUT in Africa Film Festival which has already an annual feature in South Africa's arts calendar. 

Its programming will include independent and art house movies, cinema nouveau, foreign language films, cultural programming, travel and fashion events.

The service will rival existing platforms like DSTV and TopTV. 

Watchout Vuzu!! There is a new rival on the way ...
