In the process of finalising the National Broadcast Policy
From this article, it is clear that there is a conflict between DTT and 5G.Jan 2022
They chose wrong place to run terrestrial places. It is needed for villages. Not metros. With broadband and private DTH being so affordable. I don't get who needs terrestrial service in cities like Delhi and Mumbai. 😂Only reason i can think of govt closing down DTT and not expanding, is to save the cost.
Govt should immediately privatise DTT like FM channels.
Cable was generous enough to share some of it's shows with Doordarshan. We had our own ITV called DD2. It was really popular. DD even use to outbid likes of ESPN Star to buy cricket World Cup rights. They stopped being innovative over the years. They lost the plot as soon as their monopoly of being only player in the market ended.I told you so. We need something like ITV UK. (for those who don't know ITV stands for 'Independent Television'. In Hindi, the word for 'independent' is 'Swatantra' or 'Swadheen'. So, India should have thought of expanding its terrestrial network to private players way back in 1993, instead of relying heavily on Cable TV. Had it been done, we could have gotten our own desi ITV called Swatantra TV/Swadheen TV.
Moreover, Cable TV is slowly on its way to extinction. Cable connections are now mainly used in broadband services. So, it is not wrong to say that Cable TV will cease to exist in the future. Many foreign countries have already discontinued Cable TV services.
But unfortunately, the then Congress Government under the leadership of the Late PV Narasimha Rao decided to stick to Cable TV, whose effects are now visible clearly. Rural areas still don't have Cable TV as of date. Besides, Cable TV itself is costly.
Why FM radio is only in cities? In my village, there is very poor FM radio reception.They chose wrong place to run terrestrial places. It is needed for villages. Not metros.
