The Film and Publication Board (FPB) of South Africa has reportedly given Netflix two weeks to comply with local regulations or face sanctions.
FPB, says the US streaming media service has not yet paid licensing fees for their video-on-demand service.
FPB chief operating officer Sipho Risiba made the remarks in Nairobi this week, where he signed a memorandum of understanding with the Kenya Film Commission.
The same initiatives have been seen in Indonesia where Netflix has been asked besides these fees to open an office and have Indonesians employed.
However, FPB must first get the necessary legislative amendments through parliament before it can regulate Providers like Netflix. It will be illegal under the current legislation.
