DTH News : ESPN working towards a solution
MANGALORE: ESPN officials have said that they are working towards resolving the issue with the local multi-system operator, V4 media, till such time all their sports channels were available on DTH platform.

In a release, Manish Jetley, Director, Affiliate Sales, ESPN, claimed V4 Media has violated clause 4.3 of the TRAI regulation which clearly stipulates that a cable operator has to give a 21-day public notice before switching off an electronic channel. The local operator also owes huge outstandings to ESPN, he further claimed. "Unless the issue is resolved, cricket fans in the city are likely to miss the telecast of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011," he added. ESPN STAR Sports bouquet will showcase all the 49 matches of the tournament live starting February 19, 2011.

Besides, World Cup, sports fans are currently missing the live telecast of the Ashes series between Australia and England, Jetley pointed out adding the sports bouquet continues to show the latest from Barclays Premier League, Formula One, Moto GP, TNA Wrestling and Golf besides other premium sporting events.
