SABC rolls out new educational channel in SA

The new TV channel called SABC Education will go live today and will initially be accessible on YouTube and digital terrestrial television. 

The Group CEO, Madoda Mxakwe, specified that the introduction of the channel is timely as the nation needs these interventions to fill gaps that have been created by Covid-19 related adjustments. 

“In particular, this initiative will ensure that education and learning continue outside the traditional classroom environment. The introduction of the SABC Education channel is in line with our education strategy which has been in the pipeline for some time,” Mxakwe said.

Mxakwe stated that the core content will be available in a customary manner while ancillary programming will stream via digital platforms. The digital streaming of the channel will be carried using the SABC Education portal, SABC Education Virtual Academy, social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other SABC channel websites.
