• Zee was getting free access to the DD Free Dish audience without paying the auction fees.
• Prasar Bharati and other competitors had complained about this illegal practice of Zee Media to the I&B ministry.
• Prasar Bharati has lost approximately Rs 100 crore due to ZEEL bypassing their e-auction process.
• On Friday, the I&B ministry said in an order that the Zee network has breached its uplink and downlink rules. It has revoked ZEEL’s permission to uplink to Ku band satellite frequency.
• The channels were getting available on DD Free Dish because of the proximity of transponders of both DD Free Dish and Dish TV on the same GSAT 15 Satellite and non-encryption of the signals by both of them.
