Sun TV floats UK subsidiary for distribution, posts strong Q3 - Sathish - 01-21-2010

Quote:MUMBAI: Readying to size up Sun TV Network's pay-TV revenues, founder-promoter Kalanithi Maran has floated a distribution company in UK.

Sun TV Network Europe, a wholly owned subsidiary company of Sun TV, will broadcast and distribute Sun's channels in UK and Europe.

The outpost in UK will look at doing direct deals with cable TV and direct-to-home (DTH) operators. "The Sun TV channels are currently being distributed indirectly. In UK and Europe Sun TV will directly deal with the distribution platform providers," says a source familiar with the development.

Earlier in December, Sun TV had announced the restructuring of its distribution business in order to expand its footprint across the globe via all fixed networks including cable, DTH and internet protocol television.

Maran has also given structural shape to augment his domestic pay-TV revenues. Recently, he appointed two senior distribution professionals, Mohammed Mujeebuddin and Jawed Akhthar, to manage two verticals - South Indian and international business and the other comprising north, west and eastern markets of India.
