IDF Exclusive : Re-Transmission of Free-To-Air Channels in India
So, I came across a lot of posts all around the web about Free-To-Air Channels in India. I have gathered that as an individual, if you have the equipment to receive Free-To-Air channels in India, you can do so without having to pay anybody any fee.

What I want to do?
Now, I am looking at receiving the Free-To-Air channels at my end and then re-transmitting specifically only these Free-To-Air channels for people to access on their mobile phones. This will involve the user downloading a free mobile application for viewing these channels free of charge on their mobile.

What I want to know?
While going through some posts in the forum, I found someone quoting
"The FTA channel's main source of income is through Advertisement. Some FTA channel does pay even the DTH's or Cable's a fee in order to increase their viewer base."
Considering this is true, is it legal in India to retransmit (or rebroadcast, whatever it is called) these Free-To-Air channels? This only increases the viewership of the channels and doesn't cost them anything...

Will appreciate if someone can throw some light on this!
