    TDSAT to Star: give channels to Dish TV

    Indiantelevision.com Team

    (14 July 2006 11:30 am)


    MUMBAI: Broadcast disputes tribunal TDSAT has directed Star India to make available all its channels to Subhash Chandra's DTH service, Dish TV.

    In an order passed this morning, TDSAT, while directing the sector regulator to set a benchmark for channel prices for DTH services, said that Star channels should be available to Dish TV at half the price at which they are available to cable operators.



    The reason for this, according to TDSAT, is that DTH is an addressable system where loss of revenue down the value chain is negligible if not zero.

    An interpretation of this observation on rates would mean that all Star channels (comprising bouquets 1 & 2) will cost Dish TV Rs 27 as cable operators get the same for Rs 54 per month.




    Star India was not available for comment till the time of writing this report.

    Chandra's ASC Enterprises, which holds a DTH licence, had moved TDSAT alleging that Star India was delaying making available its channels in breach of a regulatory order that states all content should be made available to all platform on a non-discriminatory basis.

    Await a detailed report that follows...

    YA IT WILL REALY COMPLETE THE DISH TV IF STAR COMES ON DISH TV,BUT ON THE OTHER HAND IF STAR CHANNELS COMES ON TO DISH TV BEFORE THE LANCH OF TATA SKY, IT WOULD REALY HURT THE SELLING OF TATA DTH.COZ MANY PEOPLE HAVE DISH TV IF THEY HAVE STAR CHANNELS ON THE SAME DECODER THEN WHO WILL READY TO BUY ANOTHER ONE.

    TDSAT is acting like a DON. it is unfair to STAR TV, i havent seen such regulations anywhere in satellite world.
    but again if STAR gets paid for each and every subscriber that watches STAR channels via DISH TV then i dont see a problem.

    in scenarios like these where ppl have similar channels on all DTH providers, ppl opt for quality and service. if SKY DTH would have any value added service ppl would still opt for sky DTH.

    in summary however, i dont support what TDSAT has asked for. every DTH has its own channels which should be its own property. why should DISH TV reap benefits from STAR PLUS content, it should make it from ZEE TV.

    similarly if it comes to international channels like discovery, CNN, disney etc, then i can support TDSAT for sharing the channels, but no support for sharing exclusive channels that belong to STAR.

    cheers
