  Govt to cut DTH licence fee to 6%
Posted by: Sathish - 02-17-2009, 04:48 PM - Forum: General Indian DTH News - No Replies

MUMBAI: Direct-to-home operators, who are saddled with losses as they ramp up subscribers, can now hope to get some cushioning from the government.

Information and broadcasting secretary Sushma Singh today said at Ficci-Frames 2009 that the government is considering a reduction in licence fee for DTH to six per cent of gross revenue from the prevailing rate of 10 per cent.

DTH operators including Dish TV, Tata Sky, Big TV, Sun TV and Airtel Digital TV have asked for a reduction in licence fee, a move which they feel would ease some of their pain.

Meanwhile, minister of state for I&B Anand Sharma said the government has increased the rate for DAVP to 10 per cent across the board. This in effect means a 25 per cent hike as earlier the government had done away with the mandatory discount of 15 per cent in DAVP ads.

The government is also looking at formulating a policy framework for Headend-In-The-Sky (HITS) soon. This will give a big boost to digitalization of cable TV across the country.

Sharma also said that the government should work with industry stakeholders to create "film festivals which would bring the entire world to us." He also urged the industry to come out with film awards that would have the same status as the Oscar Awards in the US.

On the FM radio front, Singh urged radio station owners and music companies to sit together and sort out the issue over music royalties. To offer a boost to the burgeoning animation, gaming and visual effects industry the government is setting up a centre. This has been envisaged as being a public/private sector partnership.

The Film and Television Institute in Pune is being developed to become a global institution which can attract students from across the globe. The government has also taken steps to ensure that films are scientifically archived with a facility in Pune. Over 100,000 films can be archived there.

On the film front, India has co-production agreements with Germany, Italy, UK and Brazil. The Indian government is in talks to have similar co-production agreements with France and China, Singh said.

INX Media's popular music channel 9XM, which is the world's biggest Bollywood music channel by far, is now available on one of the nation's significant Digital Multi-channel Direct-To-Home (DTH) platforms, TATA Sky, reaching an additional 3.5 million homes, who can now enjoy the innovative and world class programming of the channel. As is well known, 9XM presents full length videos of the latest chartbusting Bollywood songs interspersed with some of the most wacky, humorous and light-hearted fixtures like Bakwas Band Kar featuring Chote and Bade, along with Bheegi Billi and The Betel Nuts. Unique elements like these, along with its innovative and world-class musical packaging have made 9XM the homepage of all Bollywood music lovers ever since it first appeared in October 2007.

Vikram Kaushik, MD & CEO, TATA Sky Ltd., said, "TATA Sky prides itself on delighting its subscribers with the best channels and other content across all genres, and we are delighted to welcome 9XM, the world's biggest Bollywood music channel to TATA Sky. I am sure our subscribers will welcome 9XM in true digital quality to their homes."

Indrani Mukerjea, Founder and CEO - INX Media, says, "We are delighted that 9XM is now available on TATA Sky. We are confident that 9XM will receive the same kind of positive response from TATA Sky subscribers that it has received from Television lovers all over, which has made it the world's most popular Bollywood music destination."

9XM, which became available on TATA Sky from 14 February, 2009, is now available on all of India's six Digital Multi-channel DTH platforms – Prasar Bharati's DD Direct Plus, TATA Sky, BIG TV from Reliance, Sun Direct, Airtel's Digital TV and dishtv, which together, reach 20 million homes with over 112 million viewers. Significantly, now, both channels of INX Media, 9X and 9XM, are available on all DTH platforms in India.

9XM, launched in October 2007, has raced to the Number One position amongst all music entertainment channels, and today is the world's biggest Bollywood music channel, having enjoyed an unchallenged leadership for 65 weeks running (CS 4+, HSM). Among the youth segment, in the last 10 weeks (CS 15-24 yrs, HSM) 9XM has averaged 50 GRPs, way above MTV (40), Channel V (11.6) and Zoom (27 GRPs).
