The X-Factor will not be broadcast on SABC 1 this Year


SABC1 has officially confirmed to leave the X Factor SA second season out of its broadcast schedule for this year. This follows the channel’s re-assessment of its broadcast plans for the fiscal year 2015-16.

 “We remain proud of what the X Factor SA achieved in its first run. Not only did it produce SA’s most sought after singing group right now – season 1 winners, Four, it also proved once again that SABC1 remains Mzansi’s official entertainment authority. To be sure, the X Factor SA is still of value to the channel. However we have had to re-assess our broadcast schedule priorities and take a business decision not to include the X Factor in our schedule this year.” – said Maijang Mpherwane, SABC1 Head of Bouquet

SABC 1 currently has a number of proudly locally produced reality offerings in the likes of, The Sing Off SA (Sundays, 18h30) and the first of its kind and SA’s original in search of SA’s DJ and music producer sensation, 1’s & 2’s (Fridays, 19h30)  to which they respectively still draw quite significant, dependable crowds.
