    Default TataSky approaches Delhi HC over Sun TVs denial to share feed


    TataSky approaches Delhi HC over Sun TVs denial to share feed


    New Delhi, Feb. 23 (PTI): After failing to get any relief from broadcast tribunal TDSAT, Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite TV operator TataSky has now approached the Delhi High Court seeking directions to broadcaster Sun TV to share its feed.

    In its petition in the High Court, TataSky has alleged that Sun TV was violating the regulations of broadcast regulator TRAI. A Bench comprising Justice Vikramjit Sen and Justice J P Singh asked Sun TV to file its reply and posted the matter for further hearing on March 13.

    Tata Sky, a 80:20 joint venture between Tata Sons and broadcast major Star India, has contended that as per section 3.2 of TRAI Regulations, no broadcaster can deny signals to any DTH operator or service provider.

    However, Sun TV has refused to do so by quoting very high rates. This amounted to violation of broadcasting guidelines of Telecom regulatory Authority of India, TataSky alleged.

    The company also said by such denial Sun TV, controlled by industrialist Kalanidhi Maran, was depriving its customers in the southern region from viewing many regional channels.

    On January 24, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) had rejected TataSky's request to pass an interim order directing Sun TV to share its feed.

    Friends.......this is shocking news .. cant understand anything about Suntv saying that it had provided Dishtv its channels for Rs 85... But where are those channels........ just read this full story

    New Delhi: Failing to get any relief from broadcast tribunal TDSAT, Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite TV operator TataSky has now approached the Delhi High Court seeking directions to broadcaster Sun TV to share its feed.

    In its petition, TataSky has alleged that Sun TV was violating the regulations of broadcast regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). A bench comprising Justices Vikramjit Sen and J.P. Singh asked Sun TV to file its reply and posted the matter for further hearing on March 13.

    Tata Sky, a 80:20 joint venture between Tata Sons and broadcast major Star India, has contended that as per section 3.2 of TRAI Regulations, no broadcaster can deny signals to any DTH operator or service provider.

    However, Sun TV has refused to do so by quoting very high rates. It is demanding Rs.85 from TataSky andsays it provided its feed to TataSky's rival Zee Group promoted DTH service provider Dish TV at the same rate.

    Tatasky has, however, opposed Sun TV's price structure and termed it as "unfair and illegal" while arguing that the Rs.85 fee included Rs.25 for the group's free-to-air channels in the name of intellectual property rights.



    The company also said by such denial Sun TV, controlled by industrialist Kalanidhi Maran, was depriving its customers, in the southern region, of many regional channels.

    On January 24, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) had rejected TataSky's request to pass an interim order directing Sun TV to share its feed.

    However, TataSky contends that unlike other broadcasters such as Zee-Turner and Star, Sun TV does not have a bouquet system, so it should be allowed to choose particular channels.

    Sun TV plans to enter into the DTH business and has already received a license for this purpose.

    Sun Direct DTH to get 7 KU band Transponders on Insat 4B and 5 to DD DTH.


    http://www.financialexpress.com/fe_f...tent_id=155842

    .................Sun Direct, Dish TV and DD, however, may be better off. According to ISRO officials, Sun Direct has been offered seven of the 12 Ku transponders on Insat 4B to be launched on March 10. The other five have been given to DD, which will move from NSS-6, where it has five transponders, along with Dish TV. It is believed that Sun will sign a ten-year lease.

    Each Ku-band transponder can carry about 12 channels. So, a DTH provider needs at least eight transponders to provide 100 channels

    DD DTH must have got the channels as FTA and not for Rs.85 as nobody will pay for it in DD DTH. and also their are only 2 channels on DD DTH.

    If they are in negotiations then how can they say to tatasky that they offered their bouquet to dishtv at 85rs..

    too many political games

    but i was not kidding........ if u read this para properly then you can understand what Suntv is saying about Dishtv

    However, Sun TV has refused to do so by quoting very high rates. It is demanding Rs.85 from TataSky andsays it provided its feed to TataSky's rival Zee Group promoted DTH service provider Dish TV at the same rate.

    They say they had provided feed .....not offered.... maybe they provided when Dishtv was in testing mode

    Don't be sad. You some time back posted a news about this. In that news Sun Network said that they offered the same rate to Dish tv also. Now in this news it is a bit different. I am sure the news was little wrong. That is why the confusion. They haven't provided the feed as of now.

    Really sun tv is playing a game they dont want to give their channels to the other DTH because of it they may loose their cable market. In tamil nadu at the most all the places are covered by sumangali cable vision. Also if DISH tv have got the sun network they might have given it untill now SUN tv and SUN news are free to air in DD DTH. None of the sun channels are available in DISH DTH.
