MIB asks DoS to block signals of unauthorised DTH operator ABS Free View

NEW DELHI: In a major crackdown on illegal TV channel distribution, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) has asked the Department of Space (DoS) to block the signals of Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS), which is beaming in India without licence from the ministry.

The satellite operator is running a free DTH platform on the lines of Doordarshan’s Freedish. It has even added many popular Indian TV channels on its platform.

Keeping in view the national security angle, the MIB requested DoS to block the signals of ABS, which is beaming in India, Minister of State in the MIB Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said in the Lok Sabha.

The MIB is the licensing authority for DTH broadcasting services in India and it has received no application or reference from ABS for DTH operations, Rathore added.

Incidentally, the official ABS website does not mention anything about the ABS Free View service. The Bermuda-headquartered company operates a fleet of satellites besides offering end-to-end solutions including DTH, cable TV distribution, cellular backhaul, VSAT and internet backbone services.

No DTH company can provide its services in India without taking a licence from the MIB. New DTH operators will have to pay an entry fee of Rs 10 crore, submit a bank guarantee of Rs 40 crore and pay an annual licence fee equivalent to 10% of its gross revenue.
