MSOs, LCOs asked to take
DD channels only from C-
Band


NEW DELHI:Sticking to its promise
of ensuring that Doordarshan
channels are made available across
all cable and DTH platforms,
Information and Broadcasting (I&B)
Minister Prakash Javadekar has
taken the positive step.
Reiterating that it is mandatory to carry 24
channels of Doordarshan in digital addressable
system areas and eight channels in non-DAS
areas, the Government today also stressed that
it was necessary that all multi-system
operators (MSOs) and cable operators to take
only C-band signals of Doordarshan channels.
In the advisory, the I&B Ministry said that the
mandatory carriage had been notified in
September 2013.
However, some MSOs were taking the DD beam
from the Ku-band of DD’s DTH service,
resulting in inferior quality of transmission of
DD channels. Furthermore, some MSOs were
not even carrying the mandatory channels,
according to Prasar Bharati.
In this context, the Ministry said Para 3 of the
5 September 2013 notification was clear that
only C-band signals had to be taken ‘for
retransmission by dish antenna/television
Receive of not less than 12 feet diameter, and
Yagi antenna, to ensure good quality
reception’. http://www.indiantelevision.com/television/tv-channels/terrestrial/msos-lcos-asked-to-take-dd-channels-only-from-c-band-140807

Considering the quality of DD channels on ADTV, its a welcome decision.
But apart from taking signals from Ku band, I think operators are compressing the signals further, just bcoz DD chnls hold no worth :dodgy
