Signal distributor Sentech has informed community radio and television stations to make outstanding licence payments by the end of Tuesday.
Failure to do so will result in their signals being blocked.
Community radio and tv stations including some government departments owe Sentech R27 million in transmission costs.
“Sentech has sent correspondence to and fro to customers," Sentech’s Nthabeleng Mokitimi said.
"We’ve sent letters, reminders, informal and formal engagements to our customers so the last option that we’ve taken is to switch off the customers,” she said.
