Sun TV Network has a new distribution entity ‘TVCH Distribution Services Private Limited’

Sun TV Network in October registered a new company ‘TVCH Distribution Services Private Limited‘ that will handling the distribution mandate for Sun TV Network in  Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry for Multi System Operators (MSOs) and DTH operators.

The broadcaster earlier this month notified three different Reference Interconnect Offer (RIOs) under KMSPL and TVCH which set into effect from December 2020 which will house the distribution mandate in Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry for Multi System Operator (MSO) to TVCH Distribution Services Private Limited along with the mandate for DTH operators.

Based on the RIOs available on Sun TV Network’s website, it would seem that the company has since long split the MSO distribution mandate into various subsidiaries namely Gemini Distribution Services Private Limited (GDSPL), Kal Media Services Private Limited (KMSPL), and Sun Distribution Services Private Limited (SDSPL).

GDSPL since the advent of the New Tariff Order has been the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for Multi System Operators (MSOs) based out of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana looking for signals while SDSPL has been the SPOC for MSOs based out of Karnataka, and Rest of India (North, East, and West).

KMSPL which currently is the SPOC for MSOs based out of Kerala and Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry will soon only handle the mandate for Kerala with the newly setup TVCH set to become the SPOC for MSOs based out of Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry.

TVCH has also been named as the designated company for receiving requests for interconnection from DTH operators on behalf of SUN. The designated person for handling DTH operators remains the same as earlier even though TVCH will now be the authorised agent on behalf of SUN.
