The Cape Media officials were also enlightened on KFCB’s self-classification framework.

“The team also explored the self-classification framework, which the Board in consultation with stakeholders developed & that will see broadcasters, Video-On-Demand & Over-the-Top service providers involved in the classification of their audio-visual content once implemented,” read part of KFCB’s statement.

This framework was developed after the country switched from analogue to digital broadcasting transmission, in efforts to cope with increasing content on various broadcasting platforms.

Under this framework, broadcasters examine and rate 70 per cent of the content they air on the platforms.
