JOHANNESBURG - Satellite television provider Multichoice is being probed by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa).

The probe relates to several payments made by Multichoice to both the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) and ANN7.

The payments were allegedly made to sway government policy on digital migration in favour of Multichoice.
