Help Reliance Communications, Sun Group in talks to merge their DTH businesses
Advertisement
#1
In less than six months after the digitization drive kicked in, two large players are in talks to consolidate their DTH businesses.

Reliance Digital TV and Sun DTH are in preliminary talks to merge their businesses into a single entity, sources with direct knowledge said.

People in the know shared that promoters of the ADA Group and the Sun Group met to discuss the deal.

The deal is still at a nascent stage and the valuations are yet to be finalized, but sources suggest that Sun Group is likely to own a majority stake in the merged company while Anil Ambani'sReliance Communications is likely to own less than 26% in the company.

Sun Group has denied any such deal talks. Reliance Communications has declined to offer comment on the development.

sun direct is from sun group so sun has satelite right s about 100's of films so if it strive to add more service channels like cable operators it can attract customers,the service of sundirect and planning of software and channels is bit not ok compared with reliance if reliance and sun can improve these things it will be fine as sun and reliance are good firms inthe market so hope more channels will be added in future.but any souce of this news
