DTH News : Trai to act against cable operators
Advertisement
#1
NEW DELHI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has decided to act against local cable operators (LCOs) for failing to provide correct consumer base number to TV broadcaster and hence denying them their rightful share of revenue. Trai issued legal notices to 5,200 LCOs last week. It has now sought all the information to correct this anamoly.

The problem arose as cable TV subscribers may have been made to buy set top boxes (STBs) in metros, LCOs are reportedly not sending consumer application forms to multi system operators giving the details of these consumers. As a result, TV broadcasters are denied their rightful share of revenue for the correct number of subscribers.

"All the linked local cable operators ... of the multi-system operators operating in digital addressable cable TV systems (DAS) areas

shall ensure that, the consumer application forms, in respect of all the subscribers where the set-top-boxes have been seeded, duly filled and complete in all respect (all the relevant consumer details and his choice of channels/ bouquets)

... have been collected from the subscribers and the same are provided to the linked multi-system operators," Trai order of February 22, 2013, says. It adds that "a compliance report in this regard shall be submitted by all linked LCOs

" with details like total number of STBs received from the linked multi-system operators and number of STBs seeded and operationalized
