    here is the full story........

    Thursday, February 1, 2007 (New Delhi):

    Under a new ordinance it is mandatory for Indian private broadcasters to share live television pictures of sports events of national importance with state-run television and radio.

    But the simultaneous broadcast on Doordarshan will not carry advertisements.

    The Indian Cabinet cleared the ordinance on Thursday after Neo Sports refused to share live pictures of two One-Day International cricket between India and the West Indies recently.

    Amid a public outcry and legal action the third match in the series was telecast on Doordarshan seven minutes after Neo Sports aired live images.

    Neo Sports controls television broadcast rights of all cricket in India till March 2010.

    Thanks MJ786,
    An ordinance has been passed in parliament, very soon its going to be law.

    So soon by the law we will get 2 options to watch cricket, by cable & by terrirestial. Cable operators eat humble pie.
    Hey but still the private broadcaster will get 75% of the ad revenue from DD, so whats their problem.
    Ahh...... people outside/around India may not get to watch it for free as it will be encripted.
    But the law will include DD DTH, so lets see what sort of encription it will be maybe you gotta use your ration card number

    Cheers guys

    just a wish that such laws be passed internationally, so that monopoly of live broadcasts die out.
    really bad in africa, but hope for better future on rights.

    Its popular because of the people, you can just make big bucks from gate fee at the stadia & make millions for TV, and trust me inspite of the money India does not have the best facilities in the world, so where is the money?. Well the share goes to the ICC where poor people can benefit like Australia, New Zealand, England (also includes other Asian nations with the same share etc what a joke. When they have such a high per capita income.
    Its a good decision for the poor cricket lover & guess some of the neighbours will also benefit & maybe they will also follow suit.
    Sure that the next World Cup & other ICC rights will go down
    So now one can drive around can listen to commentary.
    A few of the good things elected law makers do for their citizens eh!

    Nb: Not applicable for test matches

    Yes Dom06 I know cricket is like a religion in India. I am also in India What I meant was we won't die if we don't watch cricket. Cricket in DD is very good news. Atleast a public sector company can make some profits. Because they are the ones who are going to put the money within India. Nimbus would take them oversees.

    There is same law in Pakistan which was implemented in 2003.Geo tv refused to share feed with the PTV (State Tv) in Pakistan during Pak vs Newzealand one day series so after that law was made by govt of Pakistan that every international match played by Pakistani team in Pakistan will be shared by pvt. channel with Ptv.Its Good new that Cricket lovers in neighboring country will also watch all matches of their team also without spending money on National channel easily.
