Broadcasting between 80-90% local content could cost the SABC further financial losses in future, says William Bird, a director at lobby group Media Monitoring Africa.

The SABC on Thursday released its results for the 2015/16 financial year in which it posted a R411-million net loss.

In the 2014/2015 financial year, the SABC reported a R395-million loss.

For the 2015/16 year, the SABC blamed its losses on factors ranging from the 2013 coverage of President Nelson Mandela’s funeral to a growth in post-retirement service costs.
