Help TRAI suggests 2014 as deadline for digital TV signals
#1

NEW DELHI: Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has suggested June 2014 as the deadline for all cable operators to move to digital television signals, in its revised recommendations to the ministry of information & broadcasting.

The ministry had proposed March 2015 as the sunset year for shifting all television signals to the digital mode, that will provide better picture and sound quality besides other value added services to consumers. TRAI, that also oversees broadcasting sector, had earlier proposed December 2013 as the deadline for the country to move to digital cable signals.

The I&B ministry had raised concerns over lack of availability of large numbers of set-top-boxes that are required to receive digital cable signals and proposed a longer period to allow cable operators to shift to the new system. TRAI chairman J S Sarma said on Wednesday that the indigenous set-top-box makers can schedule their production plans as per the digitalisation time plan.

He also said that the set-top-boxes can also be imported to meet the requirement and the global production capacity of the equipment is much more than what is needed for a national rollout of digitalisation.

In its revised recommendations TRAI has suggested the four metro cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai should shift to digital cable by December 31 this year. For cities which have a population of over one million, it has suggested December 2012 as the timeline.
