Help Tata Sky seeks a back-up satellite
Advertisement
#1
Tata Sky has requested Isro controlled Antrix Corporation for permission to hire a spare satellite from an overseas provider, in the same orbital slot as the Insat 4A satellite it uses to beam signals to subscribers.

The move follows the inability of the DTH firm, which is a three-way joint venture with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, Singapore government controlled Temasek and the $67.4 billion Tata group to get insurance against the risk of satellite failure and attendant loss of profits. If it succeeds in its attempt, the direct to home broadcaster will become the first in the industry in India, to have a back up satellite.

“Satellites fail routinely and this is not an unexpected event. Globally most large DTH firms always have a back up satellite in the orbit to ensure uninterrupted service. We have invested almost Rs 5,000 crore into the business so far and are a sitting duck in case of a satellite failure,” said Harit Nagpal, MD & CEO at Tata Sky.
