Apex court orders new tariff formula for DTH operators


7 Apr 2011
Reaction score

In a move that will ensure that the cost of cable channels will continue to remain affordable for consumers even after shifting from analogue to digital services, the Supreme Court last week ordered a new tariff formula for all digital addressable platforms.

The apex court has fixed 42 per cent of non-CAS tariffs as the new benchmark for all future commercial agreements between broadcasters, direct-to-home (DTH) firms and MSOs offering digital cable services. This formula will now replace the earlier tariff orders (35 per cent by Trai in July 2010 and 50 per cent by TDSAT in July 2006).

Simply put, this means that DTH, digital cable, and IPTV operators will only pay the broadcasters up to 42 per cent of the tariff fixed in the analogue cable market (non-addressable and un-regulated). This is important because the government has recently oulined December 31, 2014 as the cut-off date for shifting to digital and addressable cable services.
