MUMBAI: Multi system operator (MSO) Hathway Cable and Datacom has switched-off Times Network-owned channels from its platform even as the contract between the parties is currently in force. The channels were discontinued with effect from 10 December

The MSO has cited outstanding dues as the reason for switching off the channels. Hathway has been running scrolls informing subscribers about the impending switch off.

According to a source in Hathway, the broadcaster has demanded that the contract, which is scheduled to expire in March 2018, be revisited. However, the MSO is insisting that the contract must be honoured, the source added.

Hathway and Times had signed a one year fixed fee deal.

A Times Network spokesperson refused to comment on the development.

Hathway is a key player in the cable TV market with a digital subscriber base of 7.5 million, as on 30 September.

Times Network owns and operates a clutch of English news and entertainment channels in addition to Bollywood channel Zoom. The network reaches over 100 million urban affluent viewers in India.
