Sky Channel’s MSO licence cancelled as withdrawn, Live Satellite’s licence intact, clarifies MIB

MUMBAI: The ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) has clarified that it had inadvertently mentioned that the licence of Live Satellite was cancelled in registered multi system operator (MSO) list for the period ending 5 September.

Live Satellite is promoted by Atul Saraf’s ABS Group, which also has two more MSO licences under ABS Digital Cable and ABS Entertainment.

The ministry has noted that the licence of Live Satellite is still valid. However, the licence of Delhi-based Sky Channel has been cancelled as withdrawn based on the request made by the company.

Live Satellite’s serial number is 492 while Sky Channel’s serial number is 942. The list had mixed up serial number 942 for 492 leading to the error.

“In the previous MSO registration list updated on 30.09.2017, SL no. 492 was inadvertently indicated as cancelled, however, the same is still valid. MSO registration at S. No. 942 is cancelled as withdrawn by the applicant,” the MIB clarified.

For the period ending 31 October, the total number of registered MSOs stands at 1469 while provisional licences have only been granted to Arasu Cable TV Corporation and Godfather Communications.

This means that no new MSO registration has been issued between 5 September and 31 October.
