CSL Infomedia publishes NTO 2.0 compliant RIO

Posted in:

Jaipur headquartered broadcaster CSL Infomedia Private Limited has published its Reference Interconnect Offer (RIO) in compliance with the Telecommunication (Broadcasting and Cable) Services Interconnection (Addressable Systems) (Second Amendment) Regulations, 2020 (1 of 2020).

CSL Infomedia publishes NTO 2.0 compliant RIO

For the unaware, CSL Infomedia runs two Hindi News channel Jan TV and Jan TV Plus. While the former is a Free to Air (FTA) channel and available on Airtel Digital TV, NXT Digital and other platforms, the later is a pay channel.

The a-la-carte price of Jan TV Plus has remained unchanged in the new NTO 2.0 RIO at Rs 50 per month excluding 18% GST. With just a standalone offering that is not part of any bouquets, the broadcaster just had to make small minor changes. The RIO is likely to have been notified earlier this year. Jan TV continues to be an FTA channel from CSL Infomedia’s stable.

At the time of filing this story, the number of broadcasters who have publicly published their NTO 2.0 RIO stands at 4 with Mavis Satcom, IN10 Media, and Odisha TV being the other three broadcasters to have notified their NTO 2.0 compliant RIOs earlier this year.

With less than a week left for the deadline set by TRAI to expire, it remains to be seen if the broadcasters will comply with the deadline this time or continue to defy NTO 2.0.
