HITS: Govt receives 3 applications
Advertisement
#1
Quote:The government has only received three applicants from multi-system operators (MSOs) to operate under the Headend-In-The-Sky (HITS) scheme and is examining the possibility of bringing direct-to-home (DTH) players under it.

“We are studying the possibility of whether DTH operators could be placed under the HITS scheme,” said Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni.

The government announced its HITS policy which was notified by amendment of the Downlinking Guidelines late last year.

Soni also indicated that the process for FM radio Phase III is to begin shortly and may include introduction of news accessed from All India Radio.

The Minister also indicated in an informal meet that the channels may be permitted to have sports, films or other news bulletins.

She said the Ministry’s note on this was already pending with the Cabinet for the last two and a half months.

Answering questions on other issues, she said it had been decided to hold meetings of Ministry officials with local stakeholders in different regions, beginning with the meeting in Guwahati on 13 July. The north zone meeting would also be held before the end of July.
