Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma says jobs will be created as South Africa converts its national broadcasting system from analogue to digital.

South Africa's ageing TV system is to change to a new digital format over the coming years. It was supposed to have happened on November 1 after a three-year period of dual-illumination, when both the old analogue and the new digital signals were being transmitted. However, this deadline looks increasingly unrealistic.

"In communications, we have committed to convert our television and radio signals from the analogue platform to the more advanced digital signal, which will enable quality pictures and sound."

He went on to say that jobs will be created in manufacturing, packaging, distribution and installation.
