Help Feeding time in India’s DTH market
Advertisement
#1
Consolidation in the Indian DTH market is inevitable, perhaps within months, according to Tata Sky Managing Director, Harit Nagpal.

Speaking to an audience at NDS’ Perspectives series at IBC 2011, Mr Nagpal lamented what he called the high taxes levied against commercial DTH operators and the bandwidth restrictions he claims are strangling their ability to add channels and HD.

With six commercial DTH platforms and the publicly funded Dordashan service, operators are competing in a market where 120 million homes are signed up to Pay TV, with nearly a million new subscribers per month.

It’s a market with a huge middle class. “A number like a million would surprise you in Europe, it doesn’t surprise us in India,” says Mr Nagpal.

I believe there are strong chances of merge among some of the weakest operators, like Reliance and SunDirect... They are already sharing their TP's.
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.. for tomorrow never comes.. live today!!!
