SABC, has issued a Request for Proposals (RfP) from potential suppliers of a streaming service that forms a key part of the broadcaster’s future strategy. The 73-page RfP is designed to build on data and suggestions received a year ago from potential streaming technology suppliers. Currently SABC leaves its content to YouTube for access. At the broadcaster’s backend, SABC wants a solution that will allow it to provide streaming feeds to multiple destinations, including websites, apps, social media and third-party streams. The RfP requires bidders to submit their documents to the SABC no later than noon on January 18th 2022.
