MUMBAI: Star India has issued disconnection notice to direct-to-home (DTH) operator Reliance Digital TV for non-payment of licence fees.

As mandated by regulation, the broadcaster has issued a public notice stating that the signals of its channels will be discontinued to Reliance Digital TV within 21 days due to non-payment of licence fees.

Star broadcasts 50+ channels in eight different languages, reaching nine out of 10 C&S TV homes in India.

Reliance Digital TV, which has been put on the block by its owners Reliance Communications, has a mere 2% share of the total active DTH subscribers in India as on 31 December.

As per TRAI regulations, both broadcasters and distribution platform operators (DPOs) have to issue a 21-day notice before disconnecting signals to the other party.

Earlier, Star India had issued a disconnection notice to Hinduja Group-owned headend-in-the-sky (HITS) operator NXT Digital for non-payment of subscription dues.

Shortly after Star’s notice, Sony Pictures Networks India had also issued disconnection to NXT Digital and its MSO sibling IndusInd Media & Communications Ltd (IMCL).
