    Without CAS, DTH, you’re not ‘adult’ enough




    From http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1102492


    NEW DELHI: If you don’t have CAS or DTH, then you are going to miss out on ‘adult’ stuff. A large chunk of the 105-million television universe in the country would miss out on ‘adult’ programmes and films, if the draft content code becomes law.

    According to the code, prepared by an expert committee, ‘adult’ content shall not be broadcast except on an addressable platform or channels. Both cable television without conditional access system (CAS) and terrestrial TV do not fall under the ‘addressable platform’ category.

    Of the 105-million TV households in India, 60 per cent represent cable TV and a large majority of the remaining pie have terrestrial connections (only Doordarshan access). While there are over 60 million cable TV homes, not even one million have CAS.

    Besides Chennai, only some areas of Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata have CAS, which is
    all about accessing TV channels of your choice through set-top boxes.

    DTH, another form of addressable system, has limited number of subscribers — only about 3.2 million DTH connections in the country.

    Even without CAS and DTH, the television universe in the country is huge. So, if the content code is implemented, more than 100 million TV homes in the country would go without any adult programmes.

    Meanwhile, the government is trying to introduce CAS in the remaining parts of the metros soon. Also, DTH subscriber numbers are increasing.

    As for implementing the content code, the information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry has asked the industry stakeholders to submit their input on the draft code by June 15.

    After that, the draft would be kept in the public domain for views. Subsequently, the government will take a call on introducing it, as part of the broadcast bill.

    The code has described 'adult' content as per various yardsticks including crime and violence, sex and obscenity, horror and occult, drugs/smoking/alcohol, libel and slander, religion and community, harm and offence, advertisements and general restrictions.

    Thanks for the news. They are censoring too much.
