General News Cable operators get together to become MSO in Kolkata
Advertisement
#1
Kolkata: Local cable operators in Kolkata have got together to start operations as a new multi-system operator (MSO) under the banner of Bengal Broadband and Cable TV Services.

Finding opportunity in Phase IV of digital addressable system (DAS), Bengal Broadband and Cable TV Services launched their commercial services in Kolkata yesterday. This will put them up against the big MSOs like Siti Networks, Hathway Cable & Datacom, GTPL and Manthan.

Bengal Broadband and Cable TV Services is headed by Mrinal Chatterjee. “Our business has suffered after digitisation. MSOs have been squeezing local cable operators.

DTH has also been capturing the market. We are launching our digital services to secure our future,” Chatterjee told reporters. Bengal Broadband and Cable TV Services will primarily cater to Kolkata, North and South 24 Parganas, Burdwan, Birbhum, Nadia and Murshidabad markets. The aim is to grab a sizeable market share, said Chatterjee.

Chatterjee is expecting other cable TV operators to join the new outfit. “Many cable TV operators are signing agreements with us,” he said.

Bengal Broadband and Cable TV Services is offering set-top boxes (STBs) at a subsidised price. While the standard definition box is being priced at Rs 600, the high-definition box will cost Rs 1,250.

The new MSO will run two packages. The base pack is priced at Rs 280 and premium pack at Rs 380 (inclusive of taxes). For 50 HD channels, customers have to pay Rs 150 extra.
