Delhi HC wants to know if DTH players can run FM channels and VAS (1 Viewer)

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has sought a response of the
Information and Broadcasting
Ministry and six direct-to-home
(DTH) operators on a public
interest litigation seeking to restrain
DTH service providers from carrying any channel or value added service (VAS) which are
not registered with or permitted by the government.

The court passed the order on the plea of Hyderabad-based
NGO Media Watch-India (MWI) which alleged that DTH service providers carry self-promotion advertisements in violation of uplinking and downlinking guidelines.

Listing the matter for 4 March next year, a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice P S Teji issued notice to the Ministry as well as six DTH providers - Bharti Telemedia,
Tata Sky, Dish TV, Sun Direct TV, Reliance Big TV and
Bharat Business channel.

Counsel Gaurav Kumar Bansal said that value added services like 'movie on demand' or games are provided without specific licence from the Ministry.

The NGO has said that even FM radio channels are being illegally
provided and has sought orders restraining the DTH operators from providing these services. http://www.indiantelevision.com/regulators/high-court/delhi-hc-wants-to-know-if-dth-players-can-run-fm-channels-and-vas-141229

Sun Direct & Dish TV does not provide any VAS service except MOD. So big trouble for Airtel, Reliance & Tata.
