Ten Sports blacks out cable network in Rewari, alleges piracy
Advertisement
#1
Ten Sports has filed a police complaint against a cable operator in Rewari, Haryana, alleging that the operator was pirating signals of the channel.

Ten Sports had switched off the signals due to non-payment for over five months.

The broadcaster had filed a FIR against MCN Cable Network, Rewari, claiming that the cable operator had pirated the signals illegally after the switch-off.


“We had issued a public notice in the city newspapers, following which we disconnected the signals. However, the operator did not settle the dues and was demanding unreasonable discounts. He was also pirating our signals, so we lodged an FIR and police has seized the equipment,” a Ten Sports spokesperson told Indiantelevision.com.

However, Anil Gupta, one of the promoters of MCN Cable Network, said the broadcaster had threatened to switch-off the signals but never did so. "So there is no case of piracy. The broadcaster was also demanding Rs 20,000 per month for the channel, while we were paying Rs 5,000 per month. There is heavy competition among two cable operators here and it is not possible for us to pay Rs 20,000 for Ten Sports. We wanted a settlement but the channel is not ready,” Gupta elaborated.



When contacted by Indiantelevision.com, Rewari City Superintendent of Police K Venkatraman said, “We have registered a case and seized the box after a raid. But both the parties are claiming that they are not at fault. We are looking into the matter.”
